So today we start the month of June. This week we focused on the Love and Romance Expo here in Dallas. One of the questions I have gotten is why are they having this in June? I just want to share with you why we think of romance in June.
Two things happen each summer; I know because I have friends who invite me to both. They mostly seem to take place in the month of June. The first is graduations and high school graduations are the biggest ones. This year I attended a few, one for Jessica, the daughter of my wonderful friend and great helper, Roxie. I have been invited to many more, and each of these kids has a special attachment to me so I want to go and celebrate that day with them and their parents who are my friends. We are both proud of them and share the pride with the family.
The second events that seem to kick off at the beginning of summer, in the month of June, are weddings. I know of a surprise one we were told about recently. Friends of mine, Hawk and Alicia, were married just last week and shared the ceremony with family.
I know Gwynne and I will also have our wedding this summer on the first of July. We are looking forward to a wonderful day with friends and then a party at our lake house afterwards. It’s great to share this day and our love for each other with all those we love.
Love and romance is exciting as the summer months arrive. It’s also when vacations often happen and we can get away together. And, of course, those who are just married are getting away as well. But love and romance is not just a topic for weddings. Come to the Expo this weekend and hear speakers touching on so many subjects about love, such as how to create long-term love and the things most people overlook when trying create a long-term love affair.
I personally will speak on how so many people put too much emphasis on short-term feelings when we need to prepare for a long-term Rock of Love. I will share the story of how I proposed to Gwynne, the planning that went into it and how I wanted us to have long-term memories from it.
So if you have not gotten your tickets yet, head over to this link and get them now. The Love and Romance Expo. See you there.
