Shannon here: Remember to leave a comment by Aug. 7th, 8:00 PM Central for a chance to win a copy of Fear No Evil. Here’s Robin:
On our one-year dating anniversary, my future husband took me out for an evening of dinner, swimming and hot-tubbing. We were in the hot-tub after dinner and he handed me a glass of champagne. Now, I’m not one for champagne, but it was our anniversary, so I figured I’d take a sip to toast.
I took the glass and glanced inside. Because of the steam from the hot-tub, the flute had frosted over so I couldn’t see clearly, but I could tell something was in the bottom of the glass. I handed it back to my future husband and told him there was something inside. He smiled and told me to get it out. I tried dribbling it out and finally just dumped the glass’ contents into my hands.
Now, keep in mind I didn’t have my glasses on, so when I saw two gold circles fall into my hand, I immediately thought “hoop earrings.” Problem is, I didn’t have pierced ears, so I was like “really?” Then I looked closer and realized it was a wedding set that interlocked! He proposed and of course, I accepted.
Years later, I told him about my first thought of the earrings…he hasn’t let me forget it since!
Come back Aug. 6th for a glimpse into the fictional love story of Robin’s hero and heroine from Fear No Evil.
