A Lock for Love

A couple of years ago the hubs and I went to Paris. Paris is truly one of the most magical places I have ever been... between the delicious lattes, fluffy croissants, and spectacular art.. it's a place you can get lost in. We were meeting some of my hubs business associates near the Louvre (home of the Mona Lisa) and we were set to meet on a pedestrian bridge.
There were a lot of people picnicing on the bridge and sipping wine.. or drinking champagne.. only in Paris, right? I noticed the bridge was jammed packed full of locks. I asked, "Why are there all these locks here?" I was told that if you are in love you place a lock on the bridge your love will never be broken. :) The hubs and I were not able to find a lock but when one of our good friends recently got married and we heard they were honey mooning in Paris. We knew that we had to get them a lock.
 Here is the lock we sent with them to Paris. :)
Little puggers double checked to make sure it was ready to be shipped.
And the lock's new home in Paris.

What a great idea! I love you that engraved the lock, so they can go back in 20 years and find it again!
