Character interview: Luke Townsend, Love’s Golden Quest
- What is the most caring thing your spouse has ever done for you?
Do you mean besides taking care of our wagon, mending my shirts, making our meals and cleaning our clothes whenever we were fortunate enough to make camp next to a river? Rose is such a caring woman. I’m blessed to have her by my side. If I have to narrow it down to one thing, it would have to be the time I became too sick to travel. She refused to leave my side until my fever had broken.
- Where is the most romantic place you and your spouse have ever been?
Anyplace with Rose is romantic. The most romantic was a sitting alone with her one night and watching the stars. It was the first time she really opened up about her family and what she wanted from life. Also there was the picnic at Alco Springs, because it’s where we shared our first kiss.
- How soon after meeting your spouse did you know she was the one?
I knew Rose Hill was the one for me the moment I laid eyes on her. The daughter of our new preacher, I met her the day they moved in. She was a sweet as she was beautiful and still is today.
- Who is most romantic, you or your spouse?
Rose would say it’s me, but I think she is. The woman is very sentimental and values people’s feelings above all else.
- Who said, “I love you” first, you or your spouse?
My beautiful Rose spoke the sweetest words I’d ever heard first. I can’t count the number of times I wanted to say them before then, but I’d made a promise let our relationship grow with time.
- Where did you and your spouse go for your honeymoon?
We haven’t had the opportunity to take one as of yet. I think she’s earned a break and once we get the ranch running I plan to surprise her with a trip to the ocean.
