Real love takes time.
It’s courting, talking on the phone til the wee hours of the morning.
It’s taking the time to get to know your mate better.
It’s the romantic dates, long walks and steamy conversations.
It’s roses just because or a morning text that says “I’m thinking about you!”
It’s a slow dance where he holds you close and makes you feel safe.
Some would say, “yeah right,” but if you know love, ever experienced love or even wanted to feel what love feels like, you will know it’s real by the way you feel.
So many of us have been misused, abused and broken by love that any attempts to connect to it, through it or for it, is an epic fail. Because somehow, somewhere your love was taken! Taken for granted, taken for a ride or just taken and never returned.
When real love serenades you, your heart will answer because real love will always find a way. Sometimes it just takes time.
This blog is about celebrating real love in these times and finding love on their time.

For Ron and Pepper Miller they found Real Love twice. They were married eight years the first time. Divorced for five years, and they just celebrated ten years of being married again this past December. Their Real Love experience is that they learned that marriage has its bumps, but there’s nobody that they’d rather have their bumps with. Their lesson learned here is to hang tough and make it work.
