Sealed with a kiss …

Sitting here on the bed,  I looked at him from the back, his back always gives me the feeling of comfort—shields me from all the trouble. He was too busy to notice me --trying to get the fire started for the fireplace in our room –at Sonoma Coast Villa and Spa. The heat from the fireplace started to warm up as if trying to catch up with my heart –He and the fire place both have given me the warm and fuzzy feeling. 

That was the last night we were at the villa. The villa is tucked within the hill at Bodega, very tranquil setting in a sixty acre land which provides horse-back riding, golfing, meadow and the wilderness. The place is big enough to house a crowd but small enough to feel like it belongs to only two of us. The smell of the air is so fresh and flowery—gave us the much needed relaxation. And our room, the room is very cozy with the king size bed and a sitting area with two arm chairs facing the fireplace. A table with two seats facing the garden that filled with green and colorful flowers.

We started our morning with a breakfast then strolled around the property taking mental pictures of the surrounding before we traveled to Bodega Bay, Santa Rosa and Sausalito  where we had marvelous time dining at the local restaurant, The Fish. The garlicky pasta with salmon, barbeque oysters, white clam chowder and crab roll were exquisite. –every bite was as delicious as they look. Then we spent some time leisurely walking along the shops and the bay.

As his hands clasped tight with mine –my mind traveled back in time—back in college years when he first took my hands. Little did I knew he would hold my hands and led me into the wedding aisle.

Many years have passed and as we celebrate each anniversary, he would always seal it with a kiss. In fact, that was how it all started, with a simple, innocent, first kiss on the Haunted House ride in the Disney land –a kiss that lasts a lifetime. He started it that way and he would always end our anniversary celebration –sealed with a kiss.

A kiss that has traveled thru time and would be resealed in each anniversary...

Sealed With A Kiss
Author Rachel

The soft summer breeze
Whispers in our ears
The weakness hit our knees
As that special moments nears

The closer you come
The tighter you hold me
My body becomes numb
Like it was always meant to be

As you come near
There’s a smile on my face
I know there is nothing to fear
When my heart begins to race

The sounds become unheard
A feeling I’ve had never
You say that special word
That lasts in my heart forever

Our breathe slows down
We’re now face to face
Our love is renown
As our lips willingly embrace

Thank you for journeying with me on this special day...

Until next stop,
Journey of Life

  4. Happy anniversary! What a sweet and touching post. I am so happy for both of you. These special days need to be celebrated. I love coming here and always wonder "where we will be going". Thank you for visiting my blog and for the kind comments on my cards. Means a lot to me.

    1. Oh ... Winnie, you have a special talent--perhaps someday, I would see you doing the online biz crafting custom cards for folks who order ahead of time.

      And thank you for leaving such a wonderful comment.

  5. Happy anniversary! How romantic that you met in college. My mother has a theory hat iti s those marriages that are most lasting. Maybe because so much of your past is shared.

    1. I like her theory. It must be it! Thanks Sandra.
