Love? Does it last? Do we give up to easy when the going gets tough? Well here are some folks who have stood the test of time. Who, through good and bad, stuck it out together.
What does long lived love look like? I imagine the best folks to answer that question would be those who have loved for a long time. Lauren Fleishman did exactly that. In her book, The Lovers, Lauren photographed couples who have been together for more than 50 years. It's an intimate look at love surviving the test of time. So what does it take to make love last? I suppose we'll need to read Lauren's book or ask someone near us whose Love has Lived Long.

Well here's a fun little take on relationships from Helinä Ylisirnö. She writes some terrific stuff over at hotpotatoe.net. Be sure to stop by and give her a look!
I'm excited that she's joined my guest author team and I look forward to hearing a lot more from her!!
Ahh, For the Love of Relationships!
Relationship Do’s and Don’t’s. There are several things you might do in a relationship. Don’t.

Marriage tends to ebb and flow, seasons if you will. Just as nature's seasons change, so do marriages as we go through life together. These seasons, in marriage, can bring new life and blossoming possibilities (spring), can bring drifting or floating aimlessly (fall), can bring lazy contentment (summer) or the cold harshness of conflict and bitterness (winter). Unlike the seasonal calendar of nature, we rarely can predict when the seasons in marriage will come or change.
The hardest part of seasons in marriage is wondering what to do.
I love weddings. Don't you?
I love the romance of them. I love the freshness and the newness of the relationship as the happy couple gaze into each other's eyes. I love how they gaze at each other even when separated by a room full of people. I love the smiles, the laughter, the tears of joy. I love the hope! Most of all I love the hope.
In the beginning we have an unending hope.
Hope in our futures.
Hope in each other.
Hope in Love.
