Defacing a Tree for Love

If you know me you know i love trees!! I collect sticks. I don't usually let the kids pull leaves or break branches. I see them as living things that did not do anything to the kids in the first place so why should they hurt it....a little tree huggy? I confess it is true...but i am ok with that. SO this is the story....

Long long ago when we were dating i asked my then boyfriend to carve our initials in this one tree in particular....covered with initials and hearts that went back in time at the very least for 50 or more years. I just wanted our initials to be there for all to see for as long as that tree stood. Needless to say at the time it did not happen...but since we have moved back here to our old"stomping grounds" we have found another tree with many initials carved upon it. I asked again and this time he obliged...forever putting our initials there for everyone to see. He loves me! So sorry tree. I did give it a little hug to make it feel better...that knife could not have felt good!! :o)

That is awesome. One of my favorite song lines is Norah Jones's "What Am I to You?" when she asks "Did you find a love in me, would you carve me in a tree?" Well played Chris.
