This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

They had been happily married for 30 years, and said a secret to their success was that they took the time to get to know one another on many levels in addition to romance. Then once they were married they continually took time to keep the spark alive.
