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.

True Love’s Secret

November, 24, 2014

Today, I’m sharing some advice for all of you navigating the road to lasting romance. And…let’s be real…true love isn’t always easy to find and maintain. These tips come from a couple who were happily married for about sixty years. They recently passed away, but for most of my life they were like grandparents to me. When the wife departed, her companion was so heartbroken that he joined her a week later. That’s true love.

True Love

When I asked them how they kept their love fresh, the wife admitted, “It didn’t come without effort.” And the husband explained, “Every day, we try to express at least one thing we’re grateful for that the other does. Sometimes couples assume that their companions know they love them, but the sentiment bears repeating.”

With Thanksgiving approaching, I thought this was the perfect advice. We should let our loved ones know that we are thankful for them not only on this holiday, but on every day.
