Paris Lock Bridge – No more

Most of you have probably heard they took down the Love Locks at the Lock Bridge in Paris (across from the Lourve Museum). Typically the lovers initials, are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love. I was there in 2008, but did not put one on the bridge at the time – I had a troubled marriage back then and my husband did not even go with us, but I found it enduring. I wanted to return to the bridge to check it out – and see what they have changed the bridge to, or if the locks came back.

Garion at the Lock Bridge – but with No Locks. Notice the clear plastic and now signatures all over the plastic.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple ā€“ second marriages for both of us ā€“ and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)
