10 Day Love Challenge - Holiday Edition

Who can believe it is already halfway through December?!  I for one am more than ready to be done with 2016, but we still have a few weeks to go.  

One of our favorite posts of the year was the 7 Day Relationship Challenge.  With just 10 days left until Christmas, and knowing how absolutely stressful, overwhelming, and sometimes difficult, this time of year can become for so many of us, we thought what better way to lead into Christmas than to revamp our challenge and create a 10 day version that you can start today!  Up for the challenge??

Luvblacklove Stories | Frantz and Mahogani

What a crazy story! I am a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. from South Florida. In 2004, I was heading to Gainesville, FL, to attend our Annual Blue & White Weekend event. She was a cheerleader at the University of Florida, heading back to Gainesville after teaching a cheerleading clinic in Fort Lauderdale. With two guys in my car and two girls in hers, we found ourselves “drag racing” on the highway to get each other’s attention. She thought she was cute, because we had the same car (I thought she was too!). So, this went on for over an hour (from Orlando to Ocala), until she ran out of gas. Let her tell it, she beat me to the exit and I followed her. The true story: I was a gentlemen, let her get off in front of me, and I followed her with my boys to the nearest gas station. We exchanged numbers, saw each other (platonically) that weekend, and remained friends.

I knew he was the one early into us dating because when we are around each other nothing else matters. One Saturday we were chilling at his house, we ate breakfast that morning then sat and talked at his kitchen table for hours! We joked about guessing what time it was, (I didn’t have my phone near and the clock on his oven was broken). It turns out it was 2 o’clock in the afternoon. We were able to talk without a TV or phone to distract us for all that time. Furthermore, I wasn’t even concerned about anything else but our conversation. I knew then that this was different and special!

Where do I start? Well, 2 years ago Henry and I met on Instagram! Yes, it really goes down in the DMs! He asked to take me out to dinner and I agreed. We were texting all day while I was at work and he would not tell me where we were going for dinner that night. I kept asking him what area, what type of mood the restaurant would set and how fancy or casual just so I would know what to wear. He wouldn't tell me a thing! I was so annoyed. I had no clue what to wear. That evening, he pulled up to my house. I had on a tank top, a midi skirt and sandals- very casual. I get into his car and he is dressed to the nine!

Luvblacklove Stories | Rondel & Yanique
"I had no clue that he was going to propose to me. If you would’ve asked me before I would’ve guessed that it would happen in another year or two. He tricked me! I thought that we were going on a simple vacation and that he had to do a write up and lifestyle photo shoot for the resort for his travel blog.
Fast forward to the following day, Rondel scheduled an in-room couple’s message hours before our photo shoot. The photographer took our photos in the garden, by the restaurant, around the pool, and ended on the beach in perfect timing sunset. He decided to do some solo photos of the two of us and he instructed me to look at the sunset as if I was “looking towards my future.” After about 30 seconds, Rondel called my name and I turned around. I looked down and there was Rondel on bended knee with a ring in his hand. I blurted out “Rondel, is this a prop for the shoot?” His lips started moving but I went deaf".
