a slightly immodest love note: Bonnie

My next guest blogger, Bonnie from Life of Bon, commented on my blog a few weeks back telling me she wanted to participate in this month's blog series. Before emailing her the list of questions, I decided to check out her blog and was really surprised to see a face I hadn't seen in years. I knew it was her instantly. She had been in several of my English classes at BYU. I remembered her because she is one of those people who has a personality of sunshine. I can't remember ever seeing her not smile. I admired her but that was about it. I am so glad we reconnected through this strange blogosphere.

The story of our first "love note"
I still have the first "love note" from my husband, Greg.  It was written the day we met.  I met Greg when he was walking across our apartment parking lot and I was sitting on my balcony.  Because I am ridiculously outgoing and half crazy, I yelled out to him and his friends and asked them what they were up to. Greg replied that they were going to barbeque hot dogs.  In a moment of pure insanity I yelled down, "Why don't you come to MY apartment to make ME a hot dog!"... and then added last minute "With your shirt off!"  Greg, shy and completely thrown off, gave me a weird look and continued on his way.
I went to a friend's house that night, but when I came home, the following "love" note was taped to the apartment door.  It read: 
Bon Bon, I came over with my shirt off to make you a hot dog, but you are not here.  Nonetheless, you are one great gal... Greg.
And that's when I knew... it was love.

i will be featuring different pieces of some of my favorite bloggers and readers' love stories throughout the month of February since it is the month of love and all. So don't be alarmed if you have lots of posts from me this month. Happy "love" making, and I mean that in the cleanest way.


  1. My favorite love note yet! You both are so bold!! love it!

  2. I love unconventional love stories like this. Isn't the world a crazy place, huge yet so small when we meet 'that person'! I still can't believe Steve not only puts up with my 'quirks' but loves me for then and finds them endearing! Rx


  3. What a funny story!
    These are great posts :)
