A Love Story You Have to Read to Believe

Editor’s note: Is there anything better than a great love story? On a day that’s largely constructed around testing our gift-giving skills and planning the perfect date night, we’re thrilled to take a step back from all that and present a story that brings us back to the root of it all. A story that when I first caught wind of it (by way of this Instagram post), it sent chills up my spine. You don’t have to love Valentine’s Day or be a believer in destiny to appreciate this one. Because while it certainly is an uncanny, telenovela-like tale (and as such, demands the reader’s full attention), it also reminds us of one simple lesson: that love can be found in the most unlikely of places, at the most unexpected time.

Here to tell today’s story is my friend Beth, fellow Austinite, owner of this precious shop, and mother to — I’m just gonna say it — the cutest toddler ever. My heart melted upon hearing the history of her East Coast family, and so I begged her to share it with you all. Without further ado…

    This was such an amazing story and made me tear up! That small tender note she wrote was powerful and clearly painted the picture of happiness in her grandmothers married life. I will remember this story and hope one day to write a tender heartfelt note to my grandson or granddaughter on their wedding day.
