When was the last time you shared with someone your love story?
I was recently asked that question by World Moms Blog and as I typed out a short paragraph of our love story, I just couldn’t help smiling.
We met in Melbourne one winter. I was studying and working part-time. I was closing up the cafe when he showed up with his friends. I made him a cup of latte and served them some food while they waited for me to close so they could send me home.
Home was a rented apartment in the middle of the city, near chinatown. (Cosy, convenient, but not cheap.)
While we chatted over tea, he seemed very interested in the things that I was doing. From there on, I kinda knew…Before he left, he gave me a teddy bear attached to a single stalk of long-stemmed rose, along with a little note that said “I would like to get to know you more.”
After he left, we continued our conversation online and a few months later, I purchased for myself a one-way ticket back to Singapore.
People often ask me with large teasing eyes whether I had decided to come back for him. Well, if he’s in the room, I would usually deny it. But if he’s not in the room, then I might say it’s partially because.
Anyway, Melbourne will always have a special place in our hearts.
To celebrate the theme of love this month, I would like to invite you to write a little note of your own love story (where you first met, what drew you to each other, what he/she said).
If you have a picture, perfect! If not, it’s the story and the moment and the emotions that count.
Remember this special moment and rejoice over the journey. I hope this exercise brings back fond memories, transports you back to that special place where you first fell in love, and encourages you to grow your relationship even stronger.
Please share…that we may also smile along with you.
