We all love a good love story, right? The one that's everlasting, the high school sweetheart type of love.

Well, here's one for the books.

Joyce Kevorkian and James Bowman met in high school and graduated in 1953. Because of college, they went their separate ways, not knowing if they'd ever see each other again. They both remarried, had kids and created their own lives.

Not really keeping in touch, they went about their way of life on their own. Kevorkian states: "He had his life and I had my life, he probably called me four times over the last 60 years."

After 60 years, she finally received word from James Bowman, her high school love, through the mail. She received his letter and responded stating that she wanted to see him.

Both widowed now, in December of 2016, James drove to the home of Joyce Kevorkian in South Bend, Indiana and took her on their first date since the '50s. Thinking things are over, getting married to another person, but finally being able to rekindle the love you once thought was lost? Proof that love lasts if I've ever seen it.

"It was just like being 17 again. We found we liked each other just as much as we liked each other when we were 17. We laughed at the same jokes," says Kevorkian.

It seems as though it's history from there.

Just this past April 1st, the two got re-married to each other and now get to live out the love story they began to create in the early '50s. They chose the first of April because they "thought that was a good day for two old fools to get married," according to Kevorkian.

There's nothing better than a true historic love story. The two, happily reunited and now married, get to live out the rest of their days with one another, probably as they wished when they were young.

Kevorkian states, "it makes me feel young again. It makes him feel young again. It makes you feel revived and it's wonderful."

I guess this shows that if there's anything that can cure an old soul, maybe it's rekindling an old flame 60 years later.

The beauty of love is that there's so much to it. It's ever-changing and you never know what's to come. I can only imagine it came by surprise to the two that they'd be married to one another finally, at last. Maybe it didn't turn out the way they wanted to, or even when they wanted it to happen, but at least it happened.

This comes to show that not everything has to be in the moment and that the good things are worth waiting for.

Who knows, maybe you or someone you know will have a love story like these two.

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting


Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

What A 30-Day Workout Does For You

Does it actually work?
456
views

A 30-day workout is available to the world through apps on phones and by other means. I chose the phone route. Well, that was the beginning of an amazing process.

You can go on youtube and look at all the “progress" that people go through and I'm going to tell you straight up, that those are unrealistic! BUT, it does not mean it is not worth it.

You see, people have this weird way of thinking where they believe results are instant. You will not get your desired body within such a short amount of time. Just like how the world works, you have to work hard to achieve whatever goal you set. That can be for exercise, work, projects, school, and etcetera. Nothing in life comes easy.

Here's how it worked for me.

The app allowed me to choose beginner levels one and two but also allows a build up to intermediate levels. I chose beginner level two. It starts off easy enough and you think it won't take too long. Then, it gets harder and consumes some more time (not any unreasonable amounts). I kept going.

My best choice I made was taking a picture of my starting body. It is often hard to notice small changes and if you see them in a picture, then it will serve as something very rewarding and will push you to move forward.

So now, you're on day 20, and you have to keep going because you're almost done.

You get to day 30, and then you're like...wait that's it? Am I done?

No.

You keep going. You choose the next level up and you feel yourself getting stronger.

Then you take another picture. That is when you see results, even in the smallest forms. It won't be so much on the scale, but you will FEEL it and SEE it.

This will all make you want to continue and sooner or later, you have something that was a “challenge," suddenly become your routine.

I have debunked the myths and have proven that it actually works!

People must also consider other factors, such as if people are doing cardio at the same time and or have a regular exercise regimen. But overall, this little something does a whole lot for your body and yourself.

Try it out if you don't believe me.
