Lessons Learned-A Love Affair Drifted Before It Had Even Started!

dsc_0042Two  Years Later – What If? – It Only Lasted

Some years ago you were my summer romance.  Except my love for you lasted for a while.

Our story begun some years ago on a hot summer day. It was like I was only a child, but I remember everything, everything we talked about.
