Nodding Yes

Eight years ago today…

The details that led up to you kneeling down on that gazebo floor are so vivid I can almost feel the warm breeze that shifted its way through the trees, providing a brief relief from the heat of that October day. I remember the drive in that old truck, the windows down and the Colbie Caillat mix CD you had made me. I remember the way you looked at me, without a care in the world. I remember the twinkle in your green eyes as you asked me to be yours. I remember it all.

Eight years ago today you slid the most perfect ring onto my finger. Eight years ago today, I nodded yes because eight years ago today, you took my breath away.
