Most everyone enjoys a beautiful love story, especially when it is true!  One of my very favorite films is "The Young Victoria".  It is the beautifully detailed love story of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of England.  The film captures their love story perfectly!  Each time that I have viewed the film, the decor of the rooms are mesmerizing!  The English have a way of detailing these stately homes and gardens while evoking comfort and warmth.  

The week before Valentines is just the perfect week for me to capture some of the most beautiful love stories!  I hope to cover a few of them this week for you!  If you are fortunate enough to have fallen in love, I hope you realize what a special gift you've been given! Sometimes, this love is brief and other times it last longer, perhaps  even throughout a life~time.  As for Victoria and Albert, their story is sweet and innocent and strengthened and binding throughout their courtship and marriage. Most of the film captures this beauty, in their story,  not only of their love,  but also of the scenery of the countryside and gardens that are magnificent in England.  

Romance keeps a dating relationship alive and hopefully if a person is blessed enough to find that true love the romance continues in the marriage!  "When we surrender to love, we lose our self-centeredness and surge toward those we love."  Alexandra Stoddard   In the Bible in I Corinthians 13:4~8 the words proclaim, "Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong.........Love never fails."  Beautiful words to begin the week!  Enjoy your day!!!!
