The first flower Ben ever gave me was a single rose. A rose that traveled to the other side of the world, around the world, and back!
I think it’s so special that I still have it today… in perfect condition. A symbol of love, hope, patience and fidelity – faithfulness and loyalty to each other over long distance.
He gave it to me when he came to visit in Malta, when we were still dating. He had made it on a camping trip with his guy friends – one last hurrah before any of them were married! (Now all five are married!)
A name was born; I thought to myself, the most beautiful name I had ever heard. We weren’t even married yet, but I knew that someday I wanted to give it to our first baby girl. <3
