Leave a love note

Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.

Met in the spring of ’79. Holding hands. A first kiss. The romance ended when school ended. Brought back together 31 years later through the magic of FaceBook.

Fallng in love 🙂

When he asked be to be his wife on the water, the last thing he said was, “Will you go on a life-long adventure with me?” Love him and love adventure- it was perfect!

Love is seeing beauty in every day….

Our first anniversary dinner. The journey is difficult. But the summit is breath-taking.

Established January 2, 2008!!! Engaged March 30, 2012! To be married July 2013!!!

It’s not always rainbows and butterflies but compromise that moves us along…

My favorite thing in the world? Cheering on the Longhorns with my fiance by my side—the one person in the world who loves The University of Texas as much as I do.

SISTERS! Life Has Its Moments And A Sister Like You Makes Them Unforgettable!

To protect and serve… each other!

Next door neighbors, best friends, recently married at Bridal Veil Falls. Here’s to second chances and eternal love

Happiest place on earth.

Love holding hands with my love.

Love in the big apple.

Love makes you laugh and smile. Love is the person that makes you want to dance. Love is exploring the world together. Love is sharing ice cream cones. Love is fun and fancy free.

The military brought us together, and kept us apart for almost two years. In the end it was worth every hardship, and sealed with a kiss…

I have found the one whom my soul loves.

9 years later, he still rocks my world!

A Shared Sunset

Moments before he changed my life forever. So lucky I get to marry my best friend next year!


From very early on in our relationship Joe and I became adventurers together. We continue to conquer new cities, new restaurants, and eventually the world making memories along the way.

My love and I reunited after 9 years apart. 🙂

I will always remember this day in Sonoma – surrounded by family and dear friends over ten years ago! My husband’s vows were so sweet and heartfelt. He will always have my heart…and that of our two girls!

amici e amanti

Hot Air Balloon Ride over rolling hills!

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible

The night he proposed in Costa Rica!

We don’t need much to have fun, we just need each other… two journalists in love.

Looking forward to many more sunsets with my husband-to-be!

pure bliss!

Under this tree by the water he asked me to spend every summer with him forever.

Our love is being playful, silly, and forgetting about the world around us for just a moment.

This photo was taken as a part of our engagement photo session in which we re-created our first date throughout Boston’s North End.

Our love is true and sweet, even when no one is looking.

We are high school sweethearts and have been together for 8 years now. This man means the world to me and I am so excited to be his Mrs. in 3 months!

The moment my life changed forever. We were posing for a picture at a vineyard when he got down on one knee and proposed.

We were set up on a blind date and knew from the first time we met we’d be together forever.

When he “popped” the question!

This is our engagement photo – it captures exactly how we feel – in love and completed by each other.

This is the purest kind of love.

Peter and I fell in love with each other during the winter season and did long distance for 3 years and now we will marry in September!

A mountain top engagement! Our love story started in the mountains and one of our greatest passions is skiing and spending time in the Rockies.

Love at the beach.

Those who play together stay together!

Home is where the heart lives…

This photo was taken the day we first moved in with each other 8 years ago. In 10 months I’ll finally take his last name. I cannot be more blessed to become his wife 🙂

Love is always, always supporting and empowering your partner. When my Fiance recently deployed to Afghanistan, I quickly learned how important this is. This pic is from a weekly Skype date!

HIked to the hollywood sign with your dog, beyonce. This is us at the top.


Together, we’ve traveled the world. We’ve seen high and low, when we’ve traveled, and when we’ve been at home. Oh, but what stories and adventures we’ve shared. Always growing and experiencing new things.

I was suppose to be in an all girls dorm, but when I moved in there was a sign across the hall wit the names Jordan and Phil. Now 9 years ago this fall we met and next June we’ll be getting married.


Our whirlwind romance started with a flight. After traveling to many to countries together, our favorite city was in Chiang Mai Thailand, where we got to play with tiger cubs

My finance asked me to “tie the knot” at my favorite place in the whole world…. the cabin my grandfather built for our family more than 30 years ago.

waking up to this view of fog rolling over the mountains with my new fiance by my side…bliss!

From college days at Florida A&M University, to the Big Apple… Our life together has been an adventure 9 years in the making, and so excited to be getting married next year!!!

He and I When words run dry, he does not try, nor do I
We are on par. He just is, I just am and we just are.

Having someone to walk down the road of life with you is the best gift in the world.

I flew to China to meet you. You followed me to Brazil to win my heart. It took the world to bring us together, but now we’ll never be apart.

Love is in the beauty of everything created.

Elephants have always been special to my fiance and I. This photo was take during the proposal on an elephant trek on the beach in Koh Lanta, Thailand.

Its hard to keep our feet firmly planted on the ground when we’re together…life is more fun when you spend it with the one you love.

He’s from Charleson, SC. She’s from Boston, MA. We met at business school in Durham, NC and now live in New York, NY. To the many adventures and memories that got us to this point and the many more to come!

When Matt proposed, I was so surprised I didn’t actually know he was doing it. I realize now I kept interrupting his speech (“I love YOU so much! We ARE good together!”). We took this pic right after I said yes

Sunrise engagements are magical!

He came to visit me while I was a teaching assistant in Austria when we were both poor recent college grads. True love!

Can you feel the love I have for my fiance through my eyes!? I adore him!

An engagement sealed with a kiss!

I love him just as much today as I did then. Can’t wait to be his wife!

Sometimes a simple kiss is all that you need to make your day better and know you are loved!


We may appear to be from two different worlds, yet we are meant to be as ONE.

Third times a charm for us! It took three meetings before we fell in love…

We were posing for a picture and he got down on one knee. A memory I will never forget with my fiance. We are getting married in 2 months!

Our love is having FUN! Meeting in medical school helped us to savor and make time for FUN together! Two years after the masquerade ball, Cookie Monster and Elmo are getting married!

This is one of my favorite times shared with my sweetheart.

It’s the simple things that sustain our love….

What started as a chance encounter at a cafe in Rome, continued into a love affair fueled my letters. I think that this lost art was what truly fostered our deep love. We now are getting married back in Italy.

I’d follow him to the end of the world.

Truffled Popcorn

We biked off into the sunset and didn’t look back!

Truffled Popcorn

It was true love when reality was better than my imagination.

One heart for myself, one heart for her, and the overlap for the love that we share.
More hearts will come soon…
