They're in Looooove!


Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

I don't read romance novels. I'm not big on love stories, per se, but I do love to hear how other people fell in love and what they do to stay that way.

So I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite love stories.



How I love this love story. I don't need a "Which Jane Austen character are you?" quiz to tell me that I am a complete and total Elinor.


Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, tells about her romance with her Marlboro Man (who later becomes her husband). She never thought she'd wind up on a ranch, married to a cowboy, but she's followed her choice all the way to the bank. This one is a little steamy, though they never do more than kiss passionately.



Heaven is Here is not a romance, but it does tell the story of a husband and wife and how they deal with personal tragedy. Their already strong bond strengthens even more as they face the aftermath of a plane crash that leaves them with burns over most of their bodies. Their strong faith in God and each other pulls them through.






I Love You, Ronnie is a collection of letters, cards, and doodles from President Reagan to his wife Nancy. She tells the story of their romance to highlight his romantic, fun, and witty offers through decades of marriage. This one will make you go "Awwwww."









What are your favorite love stories?
