I picked up this book in Anthro the other day and had a very hard time putting it down. While a friend shopped the entirety of the store I was parked at the large wooden table piled high with books, completely oblivious to what was going on around me. My fingers leafed through the pages from front to back while my eyes furiously scanned paragraphs for a peek into this couple’s amazing story. It’s littered with romance, honesty, and relationship advice from true veterans and reads just as if a grandparent were sharing their best words of wisdom with you. With our wedding just around the corner, I thought this book would make a cute Valentine’s Day gift for the hubs-to-be, complete with dog-eared pages, favorite sentences underlined and a handwritten Valentine for a bookmark. My plan is to read a few pages aloud to him before bed each night – I’m pretty sure he’ll be sucked in as quickly as I was. This is also great wedding or engagement gift material for your sweetie or friends with a wedding on the horizon.
Read any good love stories lately? This is still one of my all-time favorites - and not just because I have a crush on Mr. Gosling.
PS. Since my fiancé and I will be apart on V-day, I’m contemplating baking this, inviting some friends over and handing everyone a fork as they walk in the door. It’s not something I’d ever want to be left alone with. Enjoy your Friday!
