Awww...thank you, Matty!  I am so glad you enjoyed it.  It was fun to write a fluffy story and essentially fast-forward to how things could eventually be.  Ha!  Look out for the winged babies with bows and arrows. :)

Sigh. Loved it, SandraDee! It is fluffy, but there's nothing wrong with that.  There's something really special about new love, and I felt that jump off the computer screen at me. Like Marzee Doats said, the dialogue was witty. I could just feel the spark between them. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.

I started laughing & almost spewed my drink on my computer when I read Jake's first (almost) proposal. Loved Heather's response to his real proposal.

I watch The Office and love Jim/Pam. I didn't even catch the similarity until I saw your note at the end. Don't think you need to worry. It was quite different from what happened with them.

Thanks so much, AveryB! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I was hoping the parts that were supposed to be funny would come across that way (and not as mean).  Likewise, I was hoping the flirting between the two wouldn't seem contrived and dull.

Thanks again!

Yeah, it was fluffy, but it was the lovely kind of fluffy.  Like cotton candy or really good, really creamy chocolate mousse. :-D

I really enjoyed this, and am very glad I stayed up to read it last night (despite the fact that I was so tired my eyes were watering the whole time).  I went to sleep smiling happily, I assure you.

As always, I just love the dialogue you give our favorite couple.  It's witty, fun, exactly the kind of conversations you want to have with the love of your life.  Wonderful stuff, and since I haven't seen The Office proposal, I laughed out loud when I read Jake's version thereof.  (I like The Office, I just don't watch regularly.  That's going to have to change!)

By the way, is this a sequel to A Tradition?  That was a Halloween story, and you mentined a pivotal Thanksgiving Day.... I can only hope that Thanksgiving makes its way out of your imagination and onto our screens sometime in the future.

Thanks for the perfect Valentine's story.

Author's Response:

Wow! Thanks for staying up late to read this. I'm glad you were able to sleep happily. :)

Dialogue is, by far, my favorite thing to write.  I'm glad you enjoyed their interaction.  I'm also pleased that Jake's proposal made you laugh.  I was chuckling when I planned out the scene, but humor is kind of hit or miss for me. Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn't.  I'm glad it worked here.

This isn't a sequel to A Tradition.  It's actually a companion piece to a Thanksgiving story I wrote but never did post.  I'm sure I'll get around to polishing it up and posting it sometime. :)

Thank you again for your comments. :)
