There is nothing better than a bottle of red wine, a box of chocolates and a cheesy romance novel. To get us in the mood for Valentine’s Day, this week we thought it would be fun to switch out our cheesy romance novel for your romantic stories.
We asked you to tell us your most romantic story and here’s what you shared.
“My husband moved across the Atlantic Ocean shortly after we met so we didn't have to be so far apart. And he brings me Firecracker bars. What more could a girl want??” Jessica B.
“When I met my husband, my then-three-year-old daughter was yet-undiagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and autism. Matt loved us even on my daughter's most challenging days, sticking with us unfailingly over the last 9 years, throughout her diagnosis and treatment. When we were married, Matt surprised everyone by asking my daughter to join us at the altar. He declared his love for me and her, and requested her permission to "marry her mommy". Then he presented her with a special ring to commemorate the occasion.” –Sarah M.
“One year my husband picked out the exact book I was hoping for Christmas without knowing I wanted it. Before we opened gifts we shared what we wanted. I went into detail about this book I had heard about and why I hoped to get it. Little did I know he had bought me that very book. It was a really exciting and joyous moment!!” –Sarah S.
“My (now) husband came to the US 10 summers ago to work. He was only supposed to be here for five months, and had been given explicit instructions from his father not to bring an American girl home. Well, what do you know, we fell in love, he asked me to marry him, and I went back to South Africa with him to meet his family! He got a new visa and we came back to the states together and were married. Eight and a half years of marriage and three kids later, we're still madly in love!” –Lyra S.
We love hearing these stories. Keep them coming! xoxo
