Today marks my 10th wedding anniversary! I met my husband 13 years ago; our first date on February 16th, 1996, just days after a Valentine's Day we both spent alone.
He proposed to me 3 years later on that very day, overlooking the Main Falls in Bushkill. It was snowy and the spray from the waterfalls left the walkways icy.
We snuck inside the closed park and only dared go as far as the Main Falls. We clung to the railing, watching the falling water. Almost completely frozen and worried of slipping to my untimely death, I turned to him to mention we should most definitely retreat to our hotel now.
And, in that moment, he proposed to me. Presenting me with a beautiful heart diamond ring.
With only the snowy forest and the rushing sound of water as my witness, I cried "Yes!"
I love you, honey! If I could hit pause, rewind and repeat a thousand times over... I would play it the same every time. I hope for as many more decades together as our lifetimes will hold.
Oh, and if you are wondering what I gave him for an anniversary present that particular year? I gave him a red heart Pez dispenser. Yup. That's one story I will never hear the end of, for sure.
