|This where I grew up.|
If you look across the lake, you will see a blue paddle boat standing up. Right above that paddle boat is a "dock", as we call it. This place is special. Very special. It is special to me because I have had many, many important conversations about life in this spot. But it is SUPER special because this is the spot where Andrew and I had our first kiss...and also where he asked me to be his wife, proclaiming his undying love for me. We went for a walk on this particular day last week and as we stopped to tell our kids the story of our love (which they were enthralled by), Andrew says, "Wait, wasn't it 10 years ago today that we had our first kiss? July 3rd, right?"
10 years. And so of course we took a pic. Keating was really just imagining what that special day must have been like.
You may not be convinced, just yet, that Missouri is beautiful, but I have a few more post intended to persuade you.
See you tomorrow (or the next day)
