Still in love after all this time…

 I spotted this online this week and just had to share, because love like this? Who doesn’t want it, right? Fifty seven years of marriage and this couple still look madly in love. It’s what I want my characters to have (whaddya mean, they’re fictional?!) and it’s what I hope in thirty years time my DH and I will still have. Perhaps minus the truck though…DH has waaaay too many vehicles as it is. 🙂


As an aside, are there any Nicholas Spark fan’s out there?

I confess I’ve never read one of his books, but I did love The Notebook movie. Yes, it was a tear jerker, but in my mind it had a satisfying ending–living a life with the person you love and then falling asleep in their arms one last time? Best way to finish a life-long love story.


The only other Spark’s movie I’ve watched is ‘The Best of Me’ and I loved the characters and the setting and the music and then…*no spoilers* but I was done. Like, completely done. That’s the romance author in me, I CRAVE those Happy Ever Afters. Actually, come to think of it, it was this song from Lady Antebellum that sold me on trying the movie…


So to save me from a complete weep-fest next time it’s my DVD pick, let me know in the comments what are your favourite romantic movie recommendations, and is there such a thing as a Nicholas Spark’s movie with a HEA??

    My best friend and husband and I met when I was 15 and he was 17. After 5 years of dating, we were married 51 years ago. We have quite a few friends in the same situation…it is doable…lots of patience and not sweating the little stuff…good sense of humor helps also.

      Hi Sharen,
      That’s wonderful – congratulations to you both. My grandparents were also married for over 50 years, so it’s lovely to hear of true love lasting the distance. 🙂

    I felt the same way about the Best of Me, argh! Of his other movies, I did like Safe Haven and The Longest Ride.

      Hi Leah,
      Okay, maybe I’ll risk those two! I suspect I’ll still need a box of tissues though!
