The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Mississippi paralegal Beverly Jackson and her best friend, Felicia Simmons, help “romantically-challenged” men create romantic ambiance for their significant others, courtesy of their business, Hopeless Romantics. Both work full-time, but on evenings and weekends, create romantic rooms for birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and even a proposal.
Jackson attorney David Nelson can tell you firsthand. He hired Hopeless Romantics in December to help celebrate his fiance’s birthday.See The Clarion Ledger.
“We went out to eat with some friends and had a great time,” says Nelson, 33. “I had a gift for her back at the house, so we stopped by there afterward. When we walked in, she couldn’t believe it. They had rose petals scattered on the floor. Chocolate-covered strawberries. Champagne and two glasses. Candles burning.”
“She was like, ‘When did you have time to do all this?’ You should have seen the look on her face. I didn’t have the heart to tell her somebody did it for me. But it was the thought behind it that counted, is the way I looked at it.”
Nelson says his fiance was “blown away.” He adds: “I stepped on flowers for three days, but it was worth it.”
