Us. Aren't we cute?
A couple of years ago, Colin and I were in Borders bookstore in Eau Claire. I can't remember what books we went there for, but I can remember the item not on our list we ended up purchasing.
We were in line to check out and I was taking my time looking at all the goodies while we waited. I was checking out the bookmarks and one in particular just got my heart a-fluttering.
It was a pink ribbon bookmark with a pearl and beading on one end, and a gold baby carriage charm on the other. Had me at hello.
I can not find a picture of it anywhere online, so my description will have to do.
Colin bought it for me without me asking or telling him I wanted it. This simple gesture is why I fell in love with him in the first place and why I continue to fall in love with him all over again.
This bookmark represented hope to me. Somehow, he knew.
P.S. Oh, and the black dress I'm wearing above? He picked it out for me at Express. Although he doesn't particularly love being dragged around an entire shopping mall, he knows my few favorite stores, and
deals with enjoys occasionally picking out a few things for me. I love the man.
