True Love Always.

I was at my son's football practice last night, and noticed this carving on the picnic bench I was sitting on.



As I traced the worn letters with my finger, I couldn't help but wonder who K.B. and S.G. were.  The carving was worn and old and I wondered if they were still together, and if not why weren't they?  I tried to guess their ages, what their names were, were they together as they carved the letters.  Or was he thinking of her while she was somewhere else?  Maybe she was the one with the knife?  I wonder if they even remember taking the time to do this in the first place. 

Now I'm not one to condone defacing public property, but I am going to start taking photos whenever I see such an image.  I'll post them when I do and I'll call the series "True Love Always" (we used to call it "TLA" when I was in high school).  But anyways, I'm waiting for the one person to come on my blog, recognize the photo and let me know they carved that heart.  I'd love to hear that they're now married with 2.2 kids, the dog and the white picket fence.

Probably unrealistic that this will ever happen, but wouldn't it be cool if it did?

  4. I think that sounds like a great little series to start. My husband and I carved our initials in a tree once and I have always wanted to go back and see them.
