Two Years Ago Today

We came to the perfect spot off the side of the road.
We were the only ones there.
It was beautiful, right next to the river.
We set up our picnic, the cantelope was extra juicy when we cut into it. We sipped our sparkling lemonade. 
As we were enjoying the beautiful nature around us Martin began to talk about us.  He told me how much he loved me, that he was proud of me, that he wanted to be with me forever.  I think I knew what was coming next. I had been waiting for this moment for five years...every day, every minute, every second. I felt like I was dreaming. 
Then he asked me.
I hugged him so hard, began to cry, and of course I said, "Yes!" after lots of, "ARE YOU SURE?! YOU REALLY MEAN IT!?" 
I remember smiling until my mouth hurt. I kept looking at Martin thinking that this was the best moment of my life so far. 
Just as we began to eat our lunch, a whole car load of visitors to the park began to set up their picnic at the table next to us...their timing couldn't have been more perfect.  I wonder if they could feel that something magical had just happened at their picnic spot...or maybe they were just wondering why the couple at the other table was so giddy with happiness.


  1. Have a very happy first Anniversary!!

  2. What a sweet chapter in your life story.

  3. Sniff! That so sweet I wanna cry, but I have gloves on and I'm in the lab so I'll have to hold it in.
