  It was two days before my flight departed for Boston, Massachusetts, when I introduced myself over the phone. Almost immediately, I knew this was a match made in heaven.

  I’ve been in the mood for poetry as of late. Autumn does that to me – having a sudden desire to curl up with a cuppa and a classic. The sudden fascination in looking out the window to observe the wind gently plucking the leaves one by one overtakes me. To linger. To learn […]

  Each couple I work with has a unique love story all their own. But what if I told you that these two have a thing for Decembers? Luke and Hannah met at a conference I invited Hannah to attend over New Years. A year later, they married each other the following December and then […]

  Some people said she would never walk correctly, let alone dance professionally. But like most inspirational stories, when there’s an obstacle it’s those who overcome that realize the true cost of success.
