LA Love Stories For Valentine's Day
By Lori Galarreta and Austin Cross
It's Valentine's Day and we're bringing you love stories that bear the label: made in LA. We asked you to share your tales of romance. Here's what we heard.
Love Story #1
Our first story comes to us from Brian Kim in Eagle Rock. It's a love tale you might file under the adage: third time's a charm.
Love Story #2
Our next tale of courtship comes from Ava Carberry. In the late '80s, following a divorce, Ava — a San Fernando Valley native — moved to the west side and found herself feeling very alone. She decided to volunteer for a Special Olympics program, and that's where she met her future husband of 25 years, Rick.
Love Story #3
Sometimes, love can come in unexpected ways. For Skylar Ibarra and her husband Stephen, it came via roller derby.
Love Story #4
Our final story is a testament to love's endurance — even when life puts up an unexpected challenge. It comes to us from Amber Phillips of Pasadena. She met her husband Tom nearly 20 years ago. Tom was rehearsing a play with her roommate when fate intervened.
