    She looked like Alicia Keys

    She looked like Alicia Keys

    I've always considered myself a romantic but how much of this quality is truly my own? And/or how much of it is just a product of watching 80s & 90s rom coms and high school dramas? In today's episode, I'll tell you a story about one of these "romantic gestures" and I’ll let you be the judge.

Brilliant show

Aaron’s 7 minute stories are captivating. This show just makes you feel good. Each story is unique and it’s so much fun to tune in and never know exactly what story you’re about to hear. Do yourself a favor and subscribe.

America

A great story Aaron. I could see the whole thing in my mind as you were telling it and felt the excitement of you being asked to be part of their team and representing as America. 👏👏 Amazing migrant community, they have this to look forward to on Saturdays. Batman and Robin Great story telling, I could feel your enthusiasm during the battle. 🐣🤺I think 🤔 she was just afraid. Thanks! Loved the semi-soulmate story! This is definitely no coincidence and I look forward to hearing the outcome. PS: I believe Cori and I would have approached them waaaaay before now. I can’t believe you waited so long doing the side-eye. Door-to-Door Salesman Aaron, I absolutely love this story and totally agree about door-to-door salesman. We don’t have many here, however we get zillions of calls a day about auto warranty, and I don’t even answer the phone anymore.I have made the same mistake that you did before and apologized profusely. MyFavorite line though is “do you forgive me?”I had asked that same question of a friend several months back, it seemed so important for me to hear. 😊I realize the importance of forgiveness and don’t like to carry something's that I have done wrong in my heart.I find that very that caring you needed to know the answer to that question also. ☺️
