I am so excited to participate in the Happy Endings blog hop which begins today. Not only is this my first blog hop to participate in, but it is always one of my favorite topics. I'm a sucker for happy endings and often get quite frustrated when I read a book, and become totally invested in it, only to have a sad horrible ending. Yuck!

In this post, I'll start with a link to the blogs participating in the hop. You can visit each of their sites during the week. Next, I'll share my personal happy ending story. Finally, I'll end with the giveaway for this site. Hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Here is the link to the blog hop.

So what is my personal happy ending? I have two that I tried to choose between, and of course, could not. Finally, I just decided to share both. 

First - meeting and marrying my best friend. I was a freshman in college when we met. As a student at Texas A&M University, I was caught up in the excitement of building Aggie bonfire. My dorm was paired with a brother dorm and I met him during our first trek into the woods to participate in cut. Once that busy, busy day was over, we all went to Whataburger where he strategically placed my drink across from him so I would have to sit there. We had our first date that night and the rest is history. By February, we were engaged and we married a year and a half later. I was young and in love, and about a month before we got engaged, he offered me the opportunity to date other people; he said he knew what he wanted, but he wanted me to be sure. I made my choice then, and almost 17 years later, am so thankful I did. 

My second happy ending was the birth of our daughter. After years of infertility treatments and heartache, we finally had a successful IVF treatment. We placed 3 embryos inside and she promptly kicked the other two out! But, in her excitement to meet Mama and Daddy, she kept trying to come too early. My asthma couldn't handle things well, so I spent the last 11 weeks of my pregnancy on bed rest. She was born a month early and it was one of the happiest moments of my life. This precious angel is the epitome of the happy ending that you get to enjoy over and over again and I am so thankful for her!

Readers and blog hop participants - enjoy the week by reminiscing about your own happy endings. Take time to reflect on those moments that have brought you pure joy. 

Enter the giveaway below, either with your email address or your Facebook account for the chance to win a $25.00 Amazon gift card and a copy of IS LOVE ENOUGH and celebrate Jason and Rebekah's happy ending as well.

To this day, I think my favorite happily ever after (in a book) is from Ella Enchanted. That was first book I ever fell in love with, way back in Elementary School. It cemented my love for happily ever afters at a young age,

My favorite happy ending is my children growing up to be good, honest, hard working responsible adults. Makes me feel like I did a good job raising them.

I think a good HEA would be marrying your love and living a great life and not worry so much about money. Any romance ending would be awesome~

Many years ago I used to pick my best friend up from work everyday. She didn’t drive & I worked just down the street from her work. I would sit in my truck and wait in the parking lot for her to get out. As I sat there everyday I would watch this really cute guy walk out of her office and go across the street to the mailbox. Everyday I made sure I was there early enough to watch him. After a few months of watching this guy, my friend & I were bored and decided to call people to get together. She was talking to this guy on the phone & I grabbed the phone from her & flirted with the guy. Everyone was busy. A few weeks later I decided to make my big move on the mailbox guy. I whistled at him as he walked across the parking lot. He asked my friend for my number, turns out he was the guy on the phone I flirted with. 23 years, 4 kids, & a big house later we are still together!

I don't have a Happily Ever After yet, but my daughter does. My daughter is 21yrs old that has a 1yr old boy. My daughter dropped out of high school and had gotten married. Her marriage ended and she was divorced and pregnant. When my grandson was about 3 months or so she met the sweetest guy ever! He and his family has excepted my grandson as there own. Her boyfriend takes care of her and the baby financially and as the baby's father. The boyfriend has a great job and makes great money, he does have a BA degree. My daughter received her GED a few months ago and now she has started college just a few days ago. I am so proud of my daughter and couldn't ask for more. She is living her very Happily Ever After. Thank you for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!!
