Some love stories are epic. Some make headlines.

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

Ours is quieter sort, a story of a love that grew day by day, month by month, year by year…

No headlines here. It’s just an ordinary love story of boy meets girl, boy dates girl (with a bit of a twist), boy marries girl…happily ever after.

As love stories go, it’s not particularly newsworthy, which may have you wondering why I designed our Valentine’s Day decorations around a newspaper theme.

Heart & Home Blog Hop

There’s a very good reason, and I’m thrilled to be sharing it today as part of the Heart & Home blog hop, a celebration of all things romantic and lovely.

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

My husband and I met over the clack of typewriter keys. (Well, computer word processor keys, but manual typewriters sound so much more romantic! So, I’m editing the story just a bit.)

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

We met on the job while we were both working as newspaper reporters. Neither of us was expecting to find that person who would make our hearts skip a beat while covering a beat.

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

But sometimes that’s how love works. You find it where you never thought to look.

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

And in time, it flowers and blooms into something beautiful…something wonderful…something forever.

Culminating in a walk down the aisle.

Amy & Bruce get married

But really, that’s just the beginning of the story…

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

It’s not the lede or the ending that are memorable, but all those paragraphs in between.

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

The who, what, when, where, why and how…the heartwarming anecdotes…the funny quotes…the ordinary moments…the ups and downs…the inevitable mistakes and corrections…

Stop the Presses: Valentines Decorations in Newsprint:

I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

      Thanks, Mary Alice. It’s fun to get personal sometimes on the blog and share a little of our story. Someday, I am going to write about our first date, which included a run-in with the police — though not as scandalous or as exciting as you might think!
