Romance is in the Air Valentine's Party

It's Valentine's week and there is romance everywhere! To celebrate, several authors are joining together in a "blog party", and it's all about romance and love. Think of your favorite love stories from books, movies, or true experiences. Please post because we'd all love to hear! Here's mine...


Twenty years ago this February, my husband asked me to marry him. It was a very romantic proposal! He'd planned it all out so wonderfully. We were on a trip with our college choir, and during one particular day, we had time to sight-see in the French Quarter of New Orleans. He picked the perfect place... the Cafe du Monde, world famous for beignets and cafe au lait. I'll never forget it. We'd been talking about getting married for months. We KNEW we were meant for each other. It just wasn't "official" yet. So, when he said, "Will you marry me?" my response was "Are you serious?" Because I couldn't tell if it was the "real" proposal or just another instance of us dreaming about the day we'd say "I do". He responded... "Well, let's see." And then he pulled the ring box from his pocket! I was so surprised and elated that I nearly threw up my beignets!

We've been back twice since then, and I'd go back tomorrow if I could!

Here we are the day he proposed in February of 1994.





And here we are again in 2011, the first time we returned.
