    Meeting you was fate,

    becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control.

    I have had my fair share of pain and heartbreak over the years but yet I'm still believe that there is someone out there just waiting to sweep me off my feet. I believe in that everyone has a soul mate. The other half to them that makes them a whole person. And I still have very...

    I like to think so, but only of the gesture

    isn't too cheesy or cliche. like don't take the opportunity to do something everyone knows is romantic, take the opportunity to do something you and your significant other will see as romantic

    The Perfect 4th Of July (my Scottish Lover)

    It was a very warm 4th of July. The gentle winds that always blew in the valley swept over me as I sat under a giant oak tree. With the rivers edge only a eight feet away, I sat staring at the water flowing down stream. I was thinking of how I was going to continue on....Marriage...
