Happy Valentine's Day // From Paris With Love...

Paris, November 2013:  We wrote our initials on a padlock, along side millions before us, locked it to the Pont de l'Archevêché, and throw the key into the Seine River as a symbol of our everlasting love.  One of the most romantic moments in my life to date.  I love this man with all my heart and could not be more thankful for all of the special moments we share together.   I woke up this morning, to pancakes, bacon (he knows the way to my heart), tea  and roses (he brought home 3 dozen... this being our 3rd Valentine's Day together).  I'm one lucky girl!

"A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we're two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we've found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life." - Richard David Bach, "The Bridge Across Forever: A Lovestory"

I loved you then. I love you now.  I will love you always.
