The other day, Chuck figured (after looking through emails) that we had known each other for 10 years. He got me the funniest card I have ever seen and a second card that was so very sweet! He also brought these beautiful flowers for me.
Then for a while now, he has told me he was working on a gift for me. I had no idea what he was up to and there is no way I would have guessed this. If you use Pinterest, you have probably seen something like this. But I haven’t seen anything like what he made me.
Before I show you, here’s a little back story. We had our first date at Lake Calhoun. Exactly two years later, Chuck recreated our first date and proposed to me at the end of our date…..on a dock on the lake……in the rain. It was raining off and on that evening. So on the way, Chuck picked up an umbrella and then proposed to me in the rain under the umbrella. Now you can see what he made me!
He made sure to line up all the crayons perfectly and made sure the wax dripped in straight lines!
And this…..just wow. He made sure the crayons went around the umbrella. And this picture is just perfect!
I was in tears. It was so perfect and so sweet. Chuck gives the most thoughtful, wonderful gifts! The last 10 years have been the best! And I am so happy I have gotten to spend them with him. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will bring! Love you, Chuck!
