Congratulations Ryan and Amanda Renner! Enoy your gift from The Royal Chocolate!
Thank you to all those who took the time to share their love stories and all those to voted. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, take some time out today to tell someone you love them!
Valentine’s Day 2003… This was a special day because it was our first Valentine’s Day. Ryan & I have something special, a once in a lifetime kind of love. Since we met he has surprised me time after time with the most thoughtful gifts. This particular Valentine’s Day was no exception!
At this point we lived in San Diego. Ryan planned a little camping trip up to Alpine. On the morning of Valentine’s Ryan woke me up and drove up the Sunrise Highway until we reached Sunrise Canyon. He backed in opened up the back of the Jeep and cooked us breakfast burritos. While we were sitting there enjoying the sunrise he handed me a beautiful card he had created with beautiful pictures of sunrises and a lovely poem, but the words from his heart were simply spectacular. It read:
Happy Valentine’s Day My Love
I thought long and hard about what would be the perfect gift for the one that cured my heart and showed me what love really is and loves me unconditionally.
Chocolates? No, they seem to be the gift of friends and acquaintances. You are my truest and best friend, but they just don’t seem to say what I feel very well.
Flowers? They are the gift of love. Yet somehow they feel temporary, almost fleeting and that is not how I feel at all.
Jewelry? Now that is permanent. But they seem to carry a value like a receipt. I don’t see how my love for you can be quantified. It is limitless and therefore priceless.
So what does that leave? The most valuable thing of all, the future. So for Valentine’s Day I give you eternity together. That still leaves me with a dilemma. What do I give to symbolize the future? What is undying like our love? What is consistent and predictable? What can be seen by everyone on earth so they know that I am in love with you?
I, Ryan Renner, give you, Amanda Renner, the Sunrise… for you to show the world everyday so they all know I love you!
Ryan is so genuine and kind as you can clearly see. He has shown me day in and day out what the true meaning of unconditional love is. I am blesses beyond measure and I thank God for Ryan every day!
Thank you for allowing me to share a little piece of our lives. It was fun to recollect back to such a precious memory!
