Posts Tagged ‘victory bell’

today is the ides of march. the day julius ceasar was murdered. i only know that because in high school i took latin I & latin II. (dork. i know.)

today is a much more historical day than that for me. today is the day i made the best choice in my life.

6 years ago tonight – my then boyfriend – now husband proposed to me – a post-spinning class me who didn’t have time to take a shower before he decided to take me to our college for a late night walk around campus. (and it was a gooooood spinning class)…  we walked around and reminised about where we met, what we thought of each other, yada yada yada… college dorm buildings, class buildings… it was a beautiful spring night. we walked hand in hand like we had done many times. then, in front of the building where we shared many college PR classes.  we sat, appropriately so, on the victory bell by daffodil hill.

he asked me what i had planned for the next 60 yrs.  and in typical me fashion – i rattled off a to-do list. because i didn’t expect the next question.

when he asked. my heart stopped. the tears started.  it was beautiful and perfect and amazing.

and the choice was easy.

YES.

Last night, I was thinking about that answer – because saying YES isn’t always that easy.  I chose him. I chose to say yes and be his partner. It was more than just saying yes to a beautiful ring and planning a dream wedding.  it was saying yes to the good times and the bad times. the times when avoiding the conversation is so much easier than having the conversation. it was saying yes to pregnancies and babies and toddlers and 2 beautiful children.  it was choosing to push forward together. no.matter.what.

Then my next thought warmed my heart even more than me choosing him.

Before I could say YES… he chose me. 

He.chose. me.

...love...
