Nor will it be fairy-tale romantic! At times she found herself caught in the mesh of lust. She was more in love with the notion of love and less in love with the prince at hand! She could not see this at first!
Of course, there were those times when she was at odds with Monsieur le Prince....often taking a tumble in love.
Armed with a treasure trove of charms, she always landed back on her feet. Her suitors tossed flowers and sweet words at her. With time (and age), she learned to be discerning. Pretty faces and empty lyrics meant nothing in her search for true love.
And then, one day, she met the love of her life who made her feel like the most beautiful flower ever to bloom. She felt like a princess again. A very wise princess who had learned to accept her prince for what he was and not what she fantasize he could be!!
Throughout all of her romantic adventures, she learned that love may come or may go, but the Queen of Hearts remains the most important card in the deck!
