Normally the newsletter is written by the owner of Ons Dorpshuis Guest House, Alna van der Walt, but this time they asked me to write a letter for

February month as it is the month of love and I am a newlywed!!

First of all, I have big shoes to fill to write anything as good as Alna and secondly, it is hard to write about love.

  Love is an emotion, an utterly deep feeling within each of us that simply can’t be touched or truly described. 


When I think of love, a few of my favorite movies come to mind –

The Lucky One, The Vow, Safe Haven, Dirty Dancing and Valentine’s Day. 

Each with a story I - and maybe you - can relate to, but they are just movies. 


In real life things work a little bit different but I believe we all can have that happy ever after.

Marriage and even any other form of intimate relationship asks for hard work,

communication and commitment as well as application Alna’s famous values: honesty, trust, respect and fairness. 

Live by these values and you’re half way to 50+ years of marriage - respect your partner’s decisions, trust their judgments, communicate honestly and treat them with fairness.


The next thing that comes to my mind when I think about love is the poem of E.E. Cummings:

“I carry your heart with me” which has been my favorite love poem since the poem gained renewed interest in the film, “In Her Shoes”. 

This poem is a really good intimate promise you can make to your loved one this month. 

Arrange something special this Valentine’s Day, but something specific, something they have been begging for, hinting about or just absolutely desires. 

Read this poem and make this promise!  This ensures a happily ever after happy partner.


Lastly, even though we make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day, this should not be something that one does only once a calendar year. 

This is an important event that should be done more often during the year. 

Never stop flirting with your man and never stop dating your lady.


  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
