I have to say that I absolutely loved running this Tell Us Your Love Story contest! Each and every one of these stories was absolutely fabulous. If you haven't read them, you must:
Lauren (in my comments)
There were two components for this contest: a love story and a goofy picture. The love stories were purely spectacular. I am pretty sure I got all choked up at some point with each and every story. And each story contained something of the profound, some nugget of wisdom. And the photos: wow. That is really all I can say. I have to say that the one that made me laugh the hardest was of Neal and Kristina, not only because of the paint-by-number Jesus between them but because of Kristina's pursed lips. Hilarious.
The drawing (that's Laurel picking the name)...
And the winner! Congratulations, Angel!
I liked Angel's story particularly because, like me, she told her beloved that she didn't need a ring and then received, as did I, "a simple, inexpensive, amethyst ring." And also, her picture cracked me up. She is sobbing not because of wedding jitters but because " I'm sobbing because my d*emon-possessed maternal grandmother just disturbed me in my dressing room."
Thanks, everybody, for playing! This was so much fun that I'll have to think of another contest run again soon. I wish I could send you all prizes, but I'm not rich, people. Angel, however, will be receiving an amazon.com gift certificate in her email box soon.

Thanks for running the contest and laughing at our picture!
I have to say that I believe I won out of all of the boy entries, though... congratulations to Angel anyway!

Wow! Thank you very much!!! :)
This was a great contest. I don't think I'd ever written out our story before. I'm glad for the opportunity to do it while I still remember. :)
I've also enjoyed reading everybody elses, and the goofy picture was a fun twist!
