Why do you want the poem written ?: Our first anniversary (November 15)
Key Messages: I met Eric just a couple of months after I got divorced from my first husband. I was in no way looking for a relationship, but Eric was funny and really cute. Eventually, I knew Eric was the one for me and I couldn't live without him. When we're not together, I'm not complete. I love us so much. He brings so much joy to my life.
Memorable Moments: When we'd only been dating a couple of months, I decided to go on a weekend trip to Brugges, Belgium, (we lived in Germany at the time). I sent him an email and asked him to go. I told him I was going regardless, so it was really up to him and didn't matter to me. Inside, though, I was dying until he said he'd go. We had a great time. We drank a little too much in the Irish pub there and I told him that I was afraid of using the terms boyfriend and girlfriend, but I felt that we were each other's boy and girlfriends. It was a funny chat to remember later.
Eric proposed to me at the top of the Eifel Tower at around midnight. I had no idea about it, but later, he told me I'd carried around the ring part of the day because it was in the camera case! The line to get to the very top was really long and we were cutting it short on time. I told him if we didn't make it all the way up, it was no big deal, we could go next time. He kept saying that it was more important to him because he'd been to Paris before and had never gone up. He would be so disappointed if we didn't make it. Anyway, at the top of the tower, it was FREEZING, even though it was July. I was tired and wanted to go down, but Eric kept saying he'd waited all that time and he wanted to go around at least twice. We went around twice, I was asked to go down. He said he wanted to wait. Well, I said, can't we at least go where it's not so cold? He said, no, I like it here. (There were less people). Then, he got down on one knee. I was so confused. He had this cute little speech (w
One of the most embarrassing things when we first met -- he was singing the song -- "If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?" And I said no, because I thought he meant would you hold it against me (and be mad). He laughs to this day because he said the song means, literally, would you hold it against me. He brings it up still.
Other Comments: Our wedding day was the most wonderful day of my life. So many times I asked him if we could just go to Vegas and get married. He always said no, that I would regret it if we did. He was right. I felt so magical and so loved. During the ceremony, I only remember myself, him and Jamie, our pastor. It was incredible and I hope I can remember it forever.
Style: Happy, romantic
Package Type: Unique
Last thoughts: I live in England, and our anniversary is in less than a month. Will it be able to make it? I sure hope so! Thanks so much!
