Back in 2008, I had a contest in which readers told me about their best or worst Valentine's Day. The winner received a copy of a Jane Austen novel-based movie (PBS). I picked the winner at random; it was this new reader of my blog -- Bythelbs.
Little did I know that this person winning my contest would go on to be my one of my greatest, bestest, and closest friends. I honestly think that I was the one who ended up wining my own contest!
I was thinking about the ironic way in which we met (through Blogging! Blogging!) and I remembered that cool contest. So, I'm going to do something like it again. Here are the rules:
1. Tell me your best love story. This could be about how you met your spouse, a particular date you had with someone, how you got engaged, the best kiss you ever had, the best boyfriend you ever had, how the person you loved showered you with gifts and you were so happy you thought you would die of joy. Or, if you can't think of the "best" love story, just tell me a good one. Because even though not all relationships end up in marriage or end up being perfect, there are still perfect moments and good times before they go/went bad. Right? Right.
2. That's all. Just leave it in the comments.
3. Seriously. That's all. You don't have to tell anyone about it --I don't care if I have 2 entries or 50. I just love to read about love stories!
The winner will get something lovely. I have to think about it, though, because I just decided in the last 10 minutes to have this contest. I promise to have an amazing prize, although I doubt it will be as awesome as friendship with Bythelbs! But maybe it will be. Maybe.
