Today it is all about romance and nothing says romance like candlelight, lace, and toile, wouldn't you agree?
Now, as some of you are aware, I do enjoy a good story. I especially like a good love story and today I have a real love story to share with you. So grab your tea and settle in while I regale you with this lovely story of romance.
They went together all through High School and they were so in love, they were inseparable! They accompanied one another everywhere, from babysitting little relatives to their senior proms, and one would have thought that they would be together forever.
She studied and went on to become a school teacher in Canada while he earned his degree and settled in the southern US.
Many years passed, and following the death of her husband in 2004, the lady and her first love were reunited once again. By this time, he was living in Oklahoma and had become a very successful business man. She, on the other hand, was retired from teaching, and was living in her home town in New Brunswick, Canada.
Upon meeting again, their love was rekindled, and it was as though they had never been apart! For three and a half years, they traveled every month between the US and Canada to be together. They discovered that they simply couldn't live without the other, so they got married.
On July 18, 2007, they travelled to Carmel, California to a beautiful seaside resort, where they pledged themselves to one another forever.
This happy couple is none other than my beloved Uncle Allan who is my mother's baby brother, her only brother, and the love of his life, Judy, who is now my aunt.
They still own two homes; one in Canada and they have bought a home together in Oklahoma.
My friends, true love stories never have endings, and I so love a happy ending, don't you?
