Your Stories – The Time I had A Blind Date With An Eye Doctor

 It’s been such a long time since I’ve shared one of the amazing love stories out there with you all and I think this is most likely the exact same intro I used for the last one… In any case, my blogging friend Alice from Lutheranliar Looks At Lifewas kind enough to share her frankly quite fun story with me for all of you to read here. I’d like for all of you to head to her blog and read her posts. They are amazing. Entertaining, fun, thoughtful… there is everything just right there. She has shared her love story a while back on her blog but I think it’s beautiful to make sure it gets some more attention again as it is a good one.
If you have a wonderful story to share, please don’t be shy. Share it with me so I can share it with my readers. Comment with the link or send me your story to But enough now, let’s get to Alice’s story finally…

Give And Take – #atozchallenge

Image result for mark manson fuck yes image

I just finished reading a fantastic post by Mark Manson in which he writes about the question if you would ever want to be with someone who is not excited to be with you. In short it’s about wanting the 100%, the question if you are 100% in or not and if the other person is 100% in or not. The question is also about giving and taking.

It’s about the question why men pursue women who are not 100% in. Why do we play the hunting game? Or why do women are happy to wait for that phone call although they realize that the guy on the other side was most likely checking “better options” before actually calling.

He touches base on so many issues I think we all have when out there, looking for the real deal.

Love Is All Around: Song A Day Challenge – Day 5

It is everywhere and it’s strong. Love. A deep feeling, that leaves us longing, gives us butterflies, happiness, blues but also a feeling of belonging. The most beautiful thing in life is when you find the right person to share it with, to walk next to each other, carry each other, lift each other up, support each other, make each other better. It’s about your “partner in crime”, the one you can steal horses with, the one you want to build on for the rest of your life. It’s about give and take.

I have found my other half and I’m sure glad I did. I know we have something special and I’m grateful for it every single day. We have a story. A story that started many years ago and is still a work in progress. I find a couple’s story one of the most beautiful things to hear or read and luckily many of you already shared yours with me to highlight on my blog in my feature Couples – Your Stories.

Do you have a story to share? A story about your special someone? I would love to hear it. It’s easy, you know. Just email it to (or leave the link to it in the comments) and I will share it on my blog and link back to yours. All those stories are special and every single one of them puts a smile on people’s faces 🙂

This is also my last post for the Song A Day Challenge. Thanks heaps to The Bag Lady, who has nominated me for this fun little exercise. Today I would like to invite For The Love Of Facts to participate. Have heaps of fun and I can’t wait to check out your song choices 😉

The rules are:

  • Post a song a Day for five consecutive days
  • Post what the lyrics mean to you ( optional)
  • Post the name of the song and video 
  • Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge.

Blast From The Past – Bitter Sweet

Some of the most difficult questions from my children are the questions about love and relationship. Mainly because we all feel so different about it. Loving is different for all of us. The one thing we all have is that it’s a strong feeling. A feeling that can make you incredibly happy and light but also so deeply sad and heavy. So how do you explain the complexity of a feeling like this to your children. They know what love is. They love their parents, their siblings (even if sometimes it doesn’t seem like it). But they have not experienced the love to an “outsider” just yet.

When the question then moves on to finding reasons why some people find together, stay together and find themselves almost inseparable I find it hard to come up with an answer that feels enough. Because I have no answer. I simply don’t know why some relationships work and some don’t work.

I’d like to re-share a post form a couple of months ago that touches on the subject and I would love to hear what you guys think…

Your Stories – A Love Story, 25 Years In The Making

Another beautiful love story I’m allowed to share on my blog. There’s love everywhere. The tricky part is to find it but when you do, you will know it…

Being Lydia!

25Twenty-five years (September 1, 1991) ago I drove North East with my good friend and her cousin. We were going to a tiny place called Seton Portage, where her other cousin, her husband, and their son lived.

We stayed in a motel which was right beside their house trailer and across from the bar/restaurant. Did I mention this place was tiny?

I wasn’t a real bar person so while they were all having drinks and playing pool, I sat over on the other side doing what I love to do, people-watching!

I walked up to the bar and there was a guy stocking the beer cooler and I asked for a root beer. We had a 5 or 10 minute conversation with the usual small-talk questions. We found out that we were both from the Lower Mainland. He was up helping his sister and brother-in-law who had just bought the…
