We had been happily dating for a few months. One day, while driving around town, we were stopped at an intersection when he pointed toward a side road and said, “If you go that way for 3 hours, you end up at the beach.” I laughed. He got a big smile on his face and asked, “You don’t believe me?” Three hours later we were walking on the beach in the moonlight. I knew then that I would spend the rest of my life with him.
Postscript: This year we will mark 19 years of marriage. He is my husband and best friend, and we still take drives on a whim.
