Savannah, The place I said yes...

Today is my anniversary-  appropriate to take you back to the place where the dr proposed to me many years ago-right in front of the fountain at Forsythe Park.  So romantic!  Took me to dinner at Elizabeth's on 37th St and then for a horse and carriage ride.  We ended up in front of the fountain.  He told me how the fountain represented new beginnings to him which is why he wanted to bring me there for the next chapter in his life.  (When looking at attending PA school in Savannah, the fountain always showed up on all the literature, becoming a symbol of the city/new beginnings to him.)  Then he dropped to one knee and proposed.  Of course, we had a little audience sitting around on benches, etc.  But for me, we were the only ones in the universe. time stood still and my life forever changed.  Without hesitation the answer was YES! ( And I haven't regretted it for one single minute!) He brought out a little box, opened it and it took my breath away.  He slipped the ring on my finger.  Our audience cheered. That's my love story. Thrilled to visit the place last weekend.  Happy Anniversary Babe!

Someone else is finding romance there too...


I even have a painting of this fountain in my house...
 Sweet memories.....

That's wonderful. Happy Anniversary!!!
You commented about Pink Saturday - don't forget that Beverly says it's about fun not a job (see her link to Jan 8 post on her Pink Saturday details). That makes it so much easier and nicer. It's still a goal to get through the list. And, I put myself in for Blue Monday too. I get to as many places as I can. When it becomes a 'chore' I stop reading. :)
