Did my title intrigue you? Let me tell you the story behind it.
Very early in our dating relationship, my sweetheart decided to surprise me with a rose. My roommate had headed to the store to buy some milk because we were all going to make milkshakes that afternoon after classes. He rode with her and was helping carry the milk in when they came back. Unfortunately for him, I stuck my head out the dorm window to give my roommate a heads up about something else that was going on in our suite. In his haste to hide the rose behind his back, the gallon of milk dropped from his hand and hit the parking lot pavement. Milk went everywhere.
Why is that sweet? The sweetness is in the motivation of wanting to surprise me with something he knew I loved. Gift-giving is one of my main love languages, and he was definitely getting bonus points that day. Although my roomie was a bit put out with him. (He did replace the milk.)
In the story I plan to write next month, several people are going to tell my main character, Genevieve, to remember why she fell in love with her husband in the first place. What had caught her eye? What had he done early in their relationship that were so special to her? I don't know if he'll spill milk in my story. It doesn't really fit. But I love to hear other people's memories of things that happened while they were falling in love. So, please, share with us. Got a story as funny and sweet as mine? Did your husband spill more than milk? Or even something with no mishaps that won your heart over the moment he pulled it off? Lay it on me!
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
