Writing Your Love Story

With Valentine's Day knocking on the door, Lve is in the air. What a prefect time to reflect, write and share your Love Story. Many people never take the time to write down the details of a love story. We all have a love story....some are fairytale-like and others...well, let's just say lessons can be learned. 

Take the time to sit down write a few words in your journal or "type" them up and tell about how you met, your first kiss, when you knew "he" was the one. Or how about the first time your eyes met? The first time your boyfriend met your parents? Your first date?  Or even your first KISS?  You can't help but have those sweet feelings flood your heart again and put a smile on your face. 

Something fun to do is have your hubby answer the same questions and create a "He said, She said" version of your love story. My hubby and I did this...Oh, it was fun!!! And let's just say we both remember our Love Story VERY differently...but I so remember the day we met in 4th grade.... his adorable perm, checkered Vans, and gray parachute pants with safety pins all the way up his calves.......beautiful....just beautiful!

Take time to remember why, how, where, and who you fell in love with....  

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Great idea. My husband and I have been married for seven years. Every time I hear him telling the story, it seems to get juicer and juicer. I so...need to write down "the real story" of how we fell in love:)

I love your idea. My husband and I have a great love story. We still tell people about it (if they ask).

Great blog!

I think a failure of some marriage counseling is that they start asking the couple to relive all their problems and negative emotions. Why not start out asking them to relive the good times? This positive approach could completely recast the nature of the counseling sessions and how the copule see themselves. Your approach recommends couples do that even before the serious troubles erupt! Good post.

As one of the flagship watch lines, Breitling is designed for pilots. Thus, Bentley Motors T functions have a close relationship with the pilots. Navitimer Watches are recognizable for the built-in slide rule which can be used to calculate the speed or elapse the time and distance. Among so many models of Navitimer World series, the Montbrillant is considered one that is not so familiar to the public.
