I had the pleasure of spending this Memorial Day weekend with my family in Philly and a very special Saturday afternoon in the quaint little town of Wayne with my hubby. The scent of nostalgia was in the air as these were our old stomping grounds while in our final semester at college when we first befriended one another. We revisited the Starbucks where we first went out alone together and the little bridge we crossed at a nearby train station during a walk through the winter snow. As the snow fell upon us, we fell in love that night. I was engaged to someone else, but it became more than clear to me that I could not go back, I could not be without him. So in a nutshell, that is how the love story of my hubby and I began in February of 2003. I savored every moment this afternoon as we walked again in our very own footsteps from that time.

With that little tidbit, I wish all you darlings who are in the States, a very happy Memorial Day. Happy Monday to everyone else:)
