Since it was valentine’s day yesterday, I thought it would be appropriate to make this week’s My Favorite.. subject about a Romantic Moment. And my favorite Romantic Moment is very easy to remember for me, and I still think about it a lot.
My Favorite.. Romantic Moment took place last year on May 30th when my boyfriend and I were in Switzerland on our summer vacation. The weather in May was very bad, and we had walked true the mountains in rain, and covered in mud. So for this particular Monday we decided to go to the city of Lucerne, where we could stay clear of the rain a little better.

I talked to my boyfriend a lot about Lucerne. When I was young, me and my family visited Switzerland a lot and I always remembered there was this beautiful, dark wooden bridge with colorful red flowers. And there were always many swans surrounding that bridge. I remember how beautiful and magical I thought that bridge was and I remembered walking there with my grandfather who passed away when I was sixteen. So ever since we knew we would go to Switzerland together, I knew I really wanted to show my boyfriend that bridge.
It was raining since we arrived in Switzerland, but I remember we walked to the beautiful ‘Kapelbrücke’ bridge and it was finally dry and the sun was even shining a little. We walked together on that bridge and I was babbling like crazy about the beautiful swans and all the memories I had about that bridge, when my boyfriend suddenly grabbed my hand and started talking about how much he loved me and how he wanted to be with me for the rest of his life. And before I realized what was happening he sat down on one knee and proposed to me. I was completely shocked and of course immediately said yes.
This moment was definitely one of the most romantic moments of my life. And a view months from now, on the day we had our very first date 10 years ago I’ll be marrying my prince. I’m one lucky girl!!
What is your favorite romantic moment? Do you still think about it a lot?
