A Love Story – {Part Finale}

Thursday, September 26th, 2013


See Part I of our Story.

I call our story a “Love story” and it is.

But some things about Love that I should say, for my babies if they ever read this….

Love is not something you “fall into”. It’s something you decide to do.

It’s not something you’ll always feel, but something you should always strive to give.

Love is a commitment to give of yourself over and over again. It’s the ultimate Servitude. It’s hard, it can hurt but it’s worth it.


A Love Story {Part…9?}

Sunday, September 8th, 2013


Phil and I became engaged on August 12th, you can read that part of our Story HERE.

This is our Engagement Portrait.

It’s kinda like THIS right? And if you were able to look more closely, you’d see that’s NOT a ring I’m holding, it was a washer from a table we’d assembled. So Romantic.


A Love Story {Part VIII – The Beginning}

Monday, August 12th, 2013

It’s been a while since I joined the How We Met Link Up over at Camp Patton, it’s been a fun walk down memory lane for me and I’ve received some very nice comments and emails from some of you readers. So thank you! For Parts I-VII of this story click HERE.


Phil had bought me a ticket to come back to Nebraska for another visit that August. I was really hoping that this would be the weekend he’d ask me to marry him but I wasn’t counting on it. In my mind there probably wouldn’t be a proposal (or wedding) until December or January at the earliest.

I’d already decided that I would use my Mom’s engagement ring as my own and cuz I’m CRAZY, I almost brought it with me to whip out if Phil did decide to ask me for my hand. But being the sane CRAZY that I am, I thought that might be too much.

I was just so happy to be able to come see him again.


A Love Story {Part VII}

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Warning, this post is PICTURE HEAVY!

I’ll justify that by calling it a “Tribute” to days forever gone. A chapter in my life that I loved. We all have those chapters don’t we? And the chapter I’m in now is pretty great too, but a chapter that will also end as they all do.

You can find A Love Story Parts I-VI HERE.

Now. Where were we? Oh yes, crying on a plane. I returned from NE still with no clear idea as to when Phil would just go ahead and make me his bride, so it was back to work and back to life as I knew it before Phil. We continued to write letters, talk on the phone and email each other.
