Yes indeed, I'm in LOVE!

It's not everyday that a woman receives something sparkly, brilliant, shiny, flawless and flashy in a beautiful white box.  At least, not this woman. 

I've waited (what seems like) a lifetime for this moment.  Sure, there were others that took my breath away.  But, not like this.  This one's epic.

I'm typically not so superficial.  I've been around the block a few times to know that 'real' love doesn't come in a box.  That said, anyone trying to rip this beauty from my fingers better stand back.  I mean it!

They say diamonds are a girl's best friend.  I say... oh yeah?!  Funny how something so slim and sleek can ignite a flame where there wasn't even a spark. 

Yes indeed, I'm in LOVE.  Apple LVE

They are lovely, aren't they?  Me, I went for the floral case, but love my new i6.

Melinda: Funny! I was a Droid man for years until 6 months ago and now with my Apple 5S; I'd never go back!

I got one of those too... Norma =)

LOL... Sussie!

Apple Love sounds so much better than Droid Love, don't ya think Norm?

We share the love, and Ron just got the new 6, he tried the 6plus found it too big, and is much happier with the new 6.  I have to wait another year for mine...A

Oh the dangers of partaking of the forbidden fruit, especially when you could have had the Galaxy before you, Melinda!

LOL- i just knew that when you mentioned a white box that it had to be an Apple product-  Do enjoy it and use it responsible.

So Mel, I didn't see which jewel you got is it the six carrotd or the 6+ Carrot???

Check out Amazon for some sparkly skins... Sybil =)

I got a funny impromptu tutorial from a stranger in a Denver airport... he said don't go bigger!  I laughed.  Feelin' the L♥VE ~ A&R!

Already found some favs... June!

LOL Bruce!  My tagline is... 'Sent from Mel's Magically Delicious iPhone!'  Magically delicious droid doesn't sound as sexy =)

We must be sharing the same love... Michele!

No need for a plus size... Paul.  It's a purdy little 6 carat!

Congrats on your engagement. I hope you and your iPhone have a long lasting relationship.

There you have it.  May you enjoy a long lasting relationship. May it never fail you or let you down.

Ohhhhh Mel, that is pretty. I think I know what I'm going to ask Santa for this year.

I have not made the commitment to upgrade as yet.  I am not too in love with the new SUPER I6 as I think it is just a bit large.  And I don't see much difference in the smaller 6 and the 5 I already have.

Mel-That is even better than a diamond. I know you didn't get that from Jared though. Smiling

Good morning Melinda, glad to hear love is in the air:)

We're still in the 'bliss' stage... Troy =)

I bet there's an app for happily ever after... Kathleen!  If not, I'll create one!

You'll fall in love... Andrea!  I changed Siri's voice to a male and asked him to talk to me.  He said... "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."  That wasn't exactly what I had in mind... lol =)

I didn't super size for that reason... Kevin.  The '6' offers fingerprint unlock and an exceptional camera.  I went for the 128 gb =)

Ditto on the diamond thing... Sharon!  I think you know me too well =)

Libra in L♥VE... I like the sound of that Katina!

Mel, dunno anything about this, but love is LOVE. And you won't get dumped.

iPhones and marriages...try and terminate either contract and it will cost you!

Posted by Kyle Reyes (The Silent Partner Marketing) about 4 years ago

LOL... Gayle, that's awfully reassuring... I think?!

LMAO... Kyle!  Isn't that the truth!

Posted by Melinda (Mel) Peterson, Curator of Happy Endings (Real Estate Cafe LLC) about 4 years ago
