A Summer for love blog hop

Personal Summer of Love story by author Regina Morris
I’ve only been in love once, and that is to my husband of the last 19 years. But I do remember the first summer we were dating. Being young teenagers in college, we had youth and very little responsibilities on our hands.

I had visited my parents, who were living in another state, for the first few weeks of the summer while Andrew was attending the first summer session of college. We were both freshmen at the University of Texas in Austin, and he was getting ahead in some of his classes. When I returned, the second summer session had began but neither of us attended that one — which left us completely free of anything to do for a good five weeks.

My husband, then boyfriend, taught me how to swim during this time. Having lived in Germany and in Omaha Nebraska, I had very little opportunity or desire to learn such a past time. He was determined to teach me even though I really did not enjoy the water. After all, how can you live in the heat of Texas and never take a dip in a pool?

We had no money, so there were no day trips or expensive dinners. We would meet for lunch and usually eat Ramon noodle soup, swim all afternoon, watch rented movies or perhaps even go to the $1 theaters for a big date night. I think our evenings usually ended about 2am since we had no where to be and no one to see the next morning. The next day, we’d do it all over again.

The carefree times of yesterday seems such a lifetime ago. With careers, two children, two puppies, a mortgage and my writing … life seems ultra busy, filled with so many responsibilities. It’s nice to think of a time when I was young and falling in love with not a care in the world. 🙂

    Great excerpt, the book sounds really great. I loved my college years when I first met my hubby. Falling in love for the first time was scary and exciting.
