I wanted to share a photo with you in honor of this weekend's Hallmark Holiday. This is a hand-painted picture of the Seven Knolls lighthouse that sits in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. It is the exact spot where Hubs proposed on July 1st 2006. You see, I have this thing for lighthouses (and cute, preppy boys from Maryland, obviously!) This painting was done especially for Hubs and I and given to us as a wedding present. It is one of our most prized posessions and sits directly above the headboard in our bedroom. Beneath it, is a hand-painted sign that reads,
"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."
(OK, I also have this thing for adorable hand-painted signs. There just might be one hanging in every room in our house!) But it's the truth. No matter what life throws your way, hold onto each other. Hold onto your friends, your family.. heck, even your puppy. Hold onto whatever keeps you sane.
No matter what the days throw at Hubs and I, this painting is the last thing we see before climbing into bed at night, causing us to hold onto each other just a little bit tighter.
I hope everyone had a fabulous love-filled weekend. Mine was filled with two dozen roses sent to me at work, breakfast in bed, a cuddle "sesh" on the couch while watching The Notebook, red velvet cupcakes, a delicious dinner by candlelight and undoubtedly more love than a girl could ask for.
Back to the real world..
