My Husband at the Japanese Gardens in Florida
Submitted: Jul 03, '09
Great Travel Moment
We were visiting my inlaws in Florida and, as we were driving down 95, we saw a sign for Morikami Japanese gardens. We walked in and felt as if we were in a different world. The serenity of the gardens and the beauty of the nature surrounding us was overwhelming. We wandered around the gardens for hours, just taking in the beauty of another culture. We found this beautiful rock garden and waterfall and I asked my husband pose in front of it to capture the moment. Just seeing the peace and joy in his eyes made me tear up. After I snapped the picture and got a little teary-eyed, my husband walked over to me, kissed me, and whispered in my ear " Someday, we will see these places for real!" I'll never forget the promise of that moment.
