I love the man....and my kitchen table!

I am such a lucky gal in more ways then one. Not only do I have a great husband, but I also have a great kitchen table that has recently made it's way from my husbands office back down to the breakfast area.

See this table is very symbolic to our love and our relationship. 



 I will never forget that Fall night exactly 15 years ago today, I went to his house for dinner.  He had set this table with beautiful flowers, wine and mismatched plates. We had lobster by candlelight. Music in the background. It was perfect.



After we were finished with our dinner he got up and said "come under the table, there's something I want to show you". I am thinking to myself  WHAT....... this guy is cute but I had never heard that cheesy one-liner before.


And there it was. Those three little words, carved in the leg of that beautiful table. With my heart beating fast, totally speechless and completely caught off guard, I say " oh no, you have ruined your beautiful table" to which he quickly responds "it's not ruined, we will have this table forever". 


 It was at that very moment underneath that table, that I knew I loved this man......and that he and his table were a keeper .



 I'm thinking that any man that's a great cook and carves that he loves you into the leg of a beautiful wood table has got to be the one.... even with his cheesy one-liner!


Grateful~
That it worked out!

I really enjoyed spending the day with you at the Country Living Fair too. It was nice to finally meet you in person. I'm looking forward to seeing where you put your new items.

  33. While it is important for people to see your promise you must also remember that hope is the keeper of both happiness and disappointment, the father of both progress and failure. See the link below for more info.
