Answer one of the questions at the end of the post to enter the drawing. Deadline: Sept 6th, 11:59 pm central time. Here’s Terri:
1. What’s the most romantic thing your spouse has ever done for you?
Ten years in to our marriage I lost my wedding ring. I was devastated and cried for months. We tore our house apart looking for the ring but never found it. My husband went on a business trip during this traumatic time and when he returned he brought me a new ring and had Never Surrender engraved inside. That is the title to ‘our’ song.
2. Do you and your spouse have a favorite song?
We have several favorite songs, but there is one that tops the others. Never Surrender by Cory Hart. We danced to this as our first dance at our wedding reception. On our anniversary we play this song to remind us of the commitment we’ve made to never give up on each other.
3. What’s the most romantic present you ever bought your spouse?
When I sold my first book, I took part of my advance and bought my husband a racecar package at the local raceway. He was speechless at first, which has only happened on one other occasion, the birth of our son. Then he was ecstatic!
4. Do you and your spouse have a favorite romantic vacation destination?
Hawaii is our go to place. We spent our honeymoon on Kaui. We’ve been to Oahu numerous times, Maui several times and the Big Island once.
5. How soon after meeting your spouse did you know he/she was the one?
I knew within a few days. I fell fast and hard. I couldn’t imagine not having him in my life. We’ve been married now for 27 years.
6. How soon after meeting you did your spouse know you were the one?
He says the day we met. About three weeks after we met he gave me a pen with my first name and his last name. Needless to say I cried. Thought he did get married for another three years but I hung on to that pen.
7. Where did you and your spouse go for your honeymoon?
We went to Poipu Beach on the island of Kaui. We stayed right on the beach with an ocean view. We had a wonderful time snorkeling, hiking, and driving around the island in a convertible. We rode in a helicopter and took a boat ride in the ocean where dolphins swam alongside of us. It was a grand adventure.
