Five Signs of love by guest blogger, Shelia Goss

Five Signs You May Be Falling in Love or Not
By Guest Blogger Shelia M. Goss

1. You can’t stop thinking about him.
He crosses your mind throughout the day no matter what you’re doing. He’s part of your thoughts whether you’re sleeping or awake. No matter how hard you try, you can’t stop thinking about him.

Be careful that you don’t neglect others (family/friends) while focusing so much energy into your new man.

2. You get butterflies every time you hear his name.
You haven’t felt this way since your first love. The strange feeling leaves you feeling a little fluttery. It’s a feeling that comes over you every time you hear his name.

Be sure this feeling isn’t trying to alert you to something else.

3. You see yourself dating him exclusively. 
 You’re at a point you want to commit to him and him alone.  You’re willing to take a chance to an exclusive relationship.

Don’t go fantasizing about matching towels just yet. Make sure you know what you’re getting into.

4. You walk around with a silly grin on your face.
Your friends and family comment that you have this goofy smile on your face–for no apparent reason. You try to curb your enthusiasm,, for your new beau, but it’s unavoidable.

Don’t fret that your family and friends don’t feel the same way about your man. Give them some time.

5. You hear a love song on the radio and it reminds you of your man.
Every slow jam that comes on the radio reminds you of how you feel about your man. You download old school slow jams to your mp3 player.

Be careful that you’re not getting caught up in the “idea” of being in love.

Love is a beautiful thing; especially when it’s reciprocated.

Keeping up with the Joneses isn’t all it’s made out to be. In this intriguing novel full of drama and plot twists, one family tries to hold on to their “perfect” life before their secrets, lies, and scandals are exposed.

On the outside, the Joneses seem like the ideal family: Royce Jones, a funeral home mogul, and his wife, Lexi, are parents to Charity, Hope, and Lovie—and everybody wants to be them. But it’s true that money can’t buy happiness, and the Joneses are harboring secrets that can’t stay hidden forever…It’s only a matter of time before the Joneses’ perfect life goes spinning out of control.
