The Winner



First of all, my most intense gratitude to all those who came to this page and wrote me a line of the world's most sublime love advice.
You are all amazing. You have all given us gifts that last a lifetime and stories that geniunely made me cry and laugh at the self-recognition in some of the behaviors I am least proud of.
I get to marry my darling man and you all were and will continue to be a part of it.

Special thanks to that otherwordly Shreve of Daily Coyote, whose Twitter link drove so much traffic here I was just flummoxed by how big it made my heart feel. You are a gift to us all, Shreve.

And the winner: short and sweet, somehow encompassing everything in a wee nutshell:

Tell each other from the beginning - "if you ever leave me, I'm going with you". Then, there's no reason to ever get to that point. :)

Also, never go to bed angry."

Stacy, Please email me at:
sunnyrisingleather@yahoo.com
to exchange information and claim your luxurious prize :)

Today I feel ten times more aware of the goodness in the world, and you are all responsible.

Love,
Allisunny (even my parents still call me that)

Allisunny,
I posted this on my blog and then realized you would never get around to reading it -- you have a wedding to go to. So here it is here:
I hope your wedding is everything you hoped for and that your marriage is a forever marriage, filled with all that God has to offer each of us in this life, as a couple and seperately. I also hope the new owner of the peacock necklace steps out and gets all the attention she deserves.

Hi Sunny! This was such a treat for me -- and I'm sure for everyone else -- to enter this space and opportunity that you created to share ideas of love and working together.

Especially loved the mention of a hand signal. My man and I have one and it comes in handy (ha!) all the time, and in so many circumstances.

I also loved hearing your description of your wedding-to-be, it sounds truly divine.
