15 Years ago, I spent my first Valentine’s Day with Michael. I was teaching in San Diego and he was at MIT. I flew back for the long holiday weekend, and to interview at Lesley College. The interview went great, my hotel was really nice, I got to watch my boyfriend practice volleyball….he was going to pick me up to go to dinner in the North End and a dance. But first, he had me serenaded by the Chorallaries, an amazing acapella group from MIT. He chose one of my very favorite songs, My Romance. Ok, I was totally gone. We had an amazing night- dinner and dancing. The rest of the weekend was just as sweet. I just cannot fathom that it was 15 years ago.
I chose the photo above, because it was on that bridge, at the Boston Public Gardens that Michael asked me to marry him. Though it wasn’t on Valentine’s day, it was a day and evening I will never ever forget. I have written about my husband before, and I know I will again. I am BLESSED beyond measure with the gift of my husband. I no longer can find where I stop, and he begins. I love you, my funny Valentine.
