Sometimes the romantic in me wakes up. I know it’s been dormant for far too long. The little details of daily living get in my brain and I just don’t remember all the wonderfully romantic things I did when I was courting my Lady Evelyn.
More importantly, I don’t pay attention to the little things that make my life sparkle because of her. It’s not that I need to do romantic things in hopes of making her happy, it’s that I need to do romantic things because she makes me so happy.
I think I just found the perfect way to say “I Love You - A Lot” to my beautiful wife of 17 years.
In Budapest, there is a tree. It has many locks on it.
The legend is that if you write your name and your lover’s name onto the lock…
…then lock it onto the fence around the tree…
…then walk to the Danube River…
…and throw the keys into the river…
…then legend says your love for each other is permanently locked together in a crazy, beautiful, laughing, passionate, procreative, fun, musical, better-than-movie-ending real-life kind of love.
It turns out that I didn’t need a tree in Budapest to lock in the love I have for my lovely bride. We are two blessed souls that have been given the gift of sharing a lifetime of sounds-make-believe-but-is-wonderfully-real love together. No legend needed here.
But, it doesn’t hurt to show that love in action once in a while.
Love you Lady Evelyn.
You make me a hopeless romantic.
