Sincere stories told from the heart are most welcome from every stage of life.

We are inspired by stories told from the heart that speak of desire, promise, and devotion, as

well as awakened by the OMG moments that gleam and sparkle, strengthened by the quieter

love stories that have stood the test of time, and stirred by the ache of yearning embedded

in the tender tales of lost love.

Our mission is to uplift, enrich and renew the spirits of our readers.


Think back to all the beautiful moments and stories that have spoken to you in your lifetime. Often a story that is not your own will provide the same inspiration as one you have personally experienced, much like the way a song or a movie might move you.


Imagine you are talking to your best friend over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. What might you share with him or her? Surprise us by the style and scope of your stories.  We want them ALL.
