Write Your Own Love Story

I really enjoy hearing our guests’ stories when they stay with us. Some describe how they met, what attracted them to each other, and stories of their weddings. Some like us, have been married for many years (38, this year!) and some are newly married, just writing the opening chapters of their stories. Here at Blessings on State we’d love to help you write your own love story!
