One of our engagement party photos
It's the 13th anniversary of our proposal.
I don't think we really remembered or celebrated it in any way the first few years of marriage but over the years we've started to give a slight nod to the importance of the day. It helps that it's Remembrance day. Remember to remember :)
This morning I said
Happy Proposal Day Anniversary darling
to which the Mr replied:
ahh If only I knew what those small words would turn into.
He talked about cause and effect and how he could never fortell from those words what was to come.
We sat at the breakfast table with our children around and he said
Look at what has become of us. Look what those words have blossomed into to.
My heart melted.
all day I've been pondering on, our words - as things that grow. Its reminded me to watch my words, chose carefully and purposefully that my words grow and blossom into positive things. Many a word can produce a negative bloom.
We actually celebrate two proposal days.
The one where The Mr could just no longer contain his feelings for me and the words just splurted right out
Will you marry me?
and In two weeks we'll visit the place he 'formally proposed' ring and all.
This week I joked, do you think the new owners/occupiers of your old house would mind if we knocked on their door and said
Hi, My husband proposed to me in this house 13 years ago, in that room over there, do you mind if we come in and reminisce??
We laughed at how shocked those people would be and think we were kinda weird...
So until 2 weeks, were we can celebrate and reminisce in a public place....
Because strangers probably don't take too kindly to random people wanting to come in and take over their bedroom.
Where did you get engaged?
