LOVE STORY ANYONE????

Hello All!  Welcome to my love story!  You should have arrived here from  Karen's blog, since it is her linky party!!  She is our host for this "Share your Love Story" party!  And, I think, since it is Valentines Day, it is a perfect party!!  Karen designed my blog, and I think she is awesome!!  But, enough of my love story with Karen.  Lets move on to my actual love story!

My story begins in High School.  Yes, I married my high school sweetheart!  And, I have been married to him for 20 years this September.  It has been an amazing 20 year whirlwind.  We laughed much more than we cried, we loved more than we thought would ever be possible, and we are happy and content.  That is true love.

He really is a special man, for so many reasons.  But, I'm only going to share these few.

He buys me sushi just because, and he supports my Hello Kitty habit, and my love of expensive purses.

He told me once that he rushes home every day, just to see me.  I said "really?"  He said "yes.  even if you are bad, or....especially when your bad!"  Now, I have to explain.  When he says "bad", he means stuff like, "um.  I spent all of my money on art supplies", or "guess what?  I repainted the living room!!".  Perhaps even "I went out to the "junque" stores today, and I bought all new vintage furniture!".  That is what he's talking about.  And, these little "bad" things that I do actually amuse him, bring a smile to his face, not anger.  So I hear, a lot of men would be really mad about these things, but not mine.  I am very lucky.

Then, we had children.  2 boys, Large is 14 and Small is 11.  That is when we knew that kind of love that you only feel when you are holding this beautiful miracle.  And my boys are just like their father when it comes to me.  They say I am the "princess", because I am the only girl.  Even the dog and cat are boys!!  So, they were raised with a father who is so good to me, so they are just as good to me.  They never forget to kiss me goodnight, or tell me they love me every single day, no matter who is there, or where they are.  When I am "bad" and do crazy things, their favorite thing to say is "Oh Mama!", like it's OK.  We expected it!  And it's fine!  And yes, they actually call me Mama.
My men this past Christmas

Me and my love

And there it is.  That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

Thanks for visiting!  I can't wait to read your love stories!!

  18. Daniella, I love your love story. I too am lucky to have that guy that doesn't mind what I do as long as I am happy doing it.
    I think we could be friends our kids are the same age (girls for me) and I tell them all the time, a boy will treat you like he treats his mother. Your boys sound like perfect little princes. That is due in no small part to the love their parents share. thanks for sharing
