It's a Giveaway!

It's a story about love.
A story about a forbidden love.
It's just not meant to be, yet they fall in love anyway.
They know it won't last but they decide to live in the now, live for the moment and enjoy their time together while they can.
For it's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all, is it not?
It's a story about dancing.
A story about following your passion.
Who cares what it looks like, dance like no one's watching!
It's a story about Havana, Cuba
A story about history and the revolution.
It's a movie called Dirty Dancing - Havana Nights
And I have a DVD to giveaway!!!

Wow, I love this movie so much. Never been to Cuba and never fallen in love but I've seen other people who are so in love and who stay together for years and I love that. I think true love is out there. I don't believe in love at first sight, but if you're open, you can find it and I'll keep believing until I find it.

I waited all my life to feel that special something.
Then one day when I was 21 years old, it happened....it took a few months to actually meet him, but in September of 1993 I met my first love. My first son, Brandon. As you know, there is no preparing for or explaining the love you feel until you hold that tiny warm baby, who is so new but yet so familiar to you in a way only you as a Mom can understand.
I thought it was impossible to love another baby as much as I love him, so for 12 years I believed he would be my only child. Until Sean and I found out we were expecting a baby! The day Shae was born was another love story. I had another baby that I absolutely adored, and seeing Brandon with her, made me love him on a whole other level.
So needless to say, after having my third baby, Lennon, and seeing the love they all have for each other.... I could burst with pride!
I think I'll go sneak a kiss while they sleep.... :)

Jason and I were going through a rough patch in our relationship in 2007 so we decided to get away for a week and go to Cuba. It was our first trip together, and our most important one. We weren't sure our relationship was going to make it through, but we took the week to talk, to relax and get back to the roots of us. It was the best thing we've ever done, and a week I'll never forget. Getting through that rough patch made us so much stronger as a couple and made us realize taking time out to just enjoy each other is so important.

We also met a great couple while on our trip and have since become really good friends. The four of us went to Cuba again in 2009 and they are going to be our best man and maid of honour at our wedding this summer!

Well me and my husband go way back!! In the summer of 1998 he was babysitting his twin cousins (who i've often babysat for), and I was babysitting a little girl next door. While all the kids were playing in their own backyards I noticed him, and we started talking for a little while. A short time later I ended up taking the little girl I was babysitting inside, and one of the twins (who by the way were like 6 at the time i'm not really sure) he called me to ask if he could come over so I said sure. While he was there he said he needed to call his brother, then he comes to me and said his cousin needed to talk to me because he likes me, and the other twin told his Cousin the same thing that I wanted to talk to him because I liked him. Well thanks to the 2 6 year old twins we hit it off and started "dating" for about 8 months but because we were young and both in highschool it didn't work. Then about 6 years later I was living in NL now and he was in Ontario I got an email from him so for a few months we chated, and kept in contact. Now something my mom always told me, and she told me again the night before I decided to leave all behind to come to Ontario by myself was "If you are mean't to be together you will be no matter how long you've been apart, or no matter of the distance between you" oh boy was she right, a little while after I got in Ontario we started talking and whatever, both of us just got out of relationships but we decided to give it a try, and we did. A few months later (I know it seems pretty quick) we found out we were expecting. We were so nervous and so excited at the same time! In May 2006 we welcomed (and in a rush) our Beautiful Baby boy Ethan in to the world!! He is the best part of the both of us, and I know everything happened pretty quick but we do not regret any of it for a second, we think everything was meant to be!!

Ethan's version of the story (We have never told him any of it so i'm not sure where he got his story)

Once upon a time there was a princess name Bobbi-Ann she was going for a walk one day and she met the Handsome prince Geremy, she was shy at first but then they kissed and got a handsome little boy named Ethan Wight who they loved alot and bought lots of toys, treats and Mcdonalds for and they all lived Happily ever after!! (He told us this story as we were passing a Mcdonalds we think it was his way of trying to convince us to buy him Mcdonalds ;)
