Today is not just Valentine’s Day, but our engagement anniversary.
I retell this every year to our kids, mentioning how their mom was completely surprised of their dad’s proposal BECAUSE it was Valentine’s Day. I am not one for cliche things of that sort so Perze knows not to propose on that day. But ironically, he did because he knew I knew he knew not to. Follow?
In any case, he made a whole day out of it, taking me to several places just in case I was catching up to his idea. And as the day was about to retire, he took me to Sandy Cove, held my hand as we walked on the large rocks leading to the stump in the water where the little light house used to be. Then as the sun was setting, he knelt down one knee, said his plea, and asked me to marry him.
This was us after he proposed. I was such a mess because I was basically weeping. Perze’s always been the prettier one between us anyway. hahahah.
Happy Valentine’s Day, mahal. Thank you for starting our life together, and now, continuing it with an even stronger passion to love our family and your devotion to take care of me. I am so blessed to be loved by you.
