Love Story: Charlene and Nathan

Love Story: Charlene and Nathan

This post was contributed by our honorary diva, Charlene.  Here she is:
 

Where to begin, I guess I would have to say… ONCE upon a time, Fall 2005 to be exact, I saw Nathan for the very first time in church. He was sitting 3-4 rows in front of me, waiting for the meeting to begin. Nathan was sitting down on the bench turned almost all the way around saying "Hello" and greeting everyone. (This is one thing I LOVE about him, he treats everyone the same. It does...

Love Story: Kristen and Jason

Love Story: Kristen and Jason.

ACTUALLY, it all started one Thursday night, the summer of 2003, when fellow diva, Tara and my sister, Tara, decided to introduce me to the crazy world of Country Dancing! I guess as a High School senior I looked old enough to pass for a college student. So I coyly made my way into Trolley Square with the “Taras.”

It wasn't long before I could smell the most yummy smell that I will always remember (and still smell on a regular basis…) Abercrombie's "Fierce"...

“Picture Perfect”: Free Canvas Deal!

Picture Perfect! A free canvas deal.

I absolutely LOVE photographs!  I love that a picture can freeze time forever! One glance at a photograph and it can take you back to that stroll on the beach or that meaningful kiss shared beneath the Christmas Tree.  My husband and I have pictures scattered throughout our entire house, each one reminding us of a special memory or moment we shared together.  In fact, I don't think there is one room in our house that doesn't have a picture displayed!  :)

....which...

Love Story: Kiirsten and Brian

A Love Story: Kiirsten and Brian

I think every girl wonders how she'll eventually meet Mr. Right.  Little did I know the day I knocked on a stranger's door while "shopping" for space in a house to rent, that the tall, handsome guy who answered would be mine.  My first impression of Brian was that he was very polite, respectful, and kind. Then his two year old son came waddling down the stairs, and I watched how he lovingly took him in his arms and cuddled him... so tender.  The house was brand...

Love Story: Kari and Adam

Love Story: Diva, Kari shares her love story with husband, Adam.

Our Love Story
May 2003...
I was in Boise, ID visiting an old friend of mine, Katee, from high school. She had made plans for us to meet up with three of her boyfriend's friends for dinner at The Olive Garden. Little did I know she was trying to set me up on a date with one of those friends.  Let's just say that I did not end up with the guy she was intending to set me up with. However...
  

When we got to the restaurant the guys were already at a table...

Love Story: Erika and Justin

Love story from Erika and Justin

I knew I was in love the minute I met my husband, Justin. It was the first day of High School, and he had just walked into my math class. I can still remember what he was wearing - Lucky jeans, K-Swiss shoes, a navy blue shirt, and he had cute spiky hair (gotta love 1999!). Every girl in the sophomore class was drooling over this kid who was the Class President. He was nice to everyone and I was totally smitten.

I asked him to Sweethearts Ball right after I turned...
