Just wanted to say that it’s time to cross me off the list 🙂
My SO and I were celebrating our anniversary weekend this week, and wow… I had NO idea this was coming! For the past few months, he’d really had me thinking that it would
This morning, he send me on a scavenger hunt around our hometown, to all the special places with good times we’ve shared. Each clue had a letter with it, sharing something really sweet — talking about the people who love us, reminding me of the first time we said our “I love yous,” how we both want to build our relationship around God, our dreams for our future. The clues incorporated poems from The Lord of the Rings, which has been my favorite book since I was 10, and he talked about wanting to be as faithful as Sam, the Tom Bombadil to my Goldberry, all kinds of adorable (and just like us) things. The clues led me back to his house, and he took me on a picnic to Grandfather Mountain, a local nature preserve.
We had our lunch and took some pictures, and when I got back in the car, he gave me my last clue. It was inside a leatherbound copy of LotR — and it said that my SO had one question for me… and he asked 😀
It was absolutely perfect — it was just like him, just right for me, absolutely everything I could ever have dreamed of. Apparently my whole family and everyone we know knew for sometime between a month to a few days beforehand — I have NO idea how my mom kept it from me for so long! He had all kinds of help planning, and it was SOOOO worth it. Even though I’d had some rough times waiting, it all paid off a million zillion times 🙂
