I am the biggest Sap

For days now, I have been the biggest sap ever. If you don't read Steph's blog The Adventures of Jon & Steph then you may not understand this story. A few days ago she posted about her recent trip to Cologne, Germany with her husband Jon. Being the loyal follower that I am, I read the post. Simple enough right? Wrong. I fell in love with this post. She introduced me to the greatest and cutest idea ever. Let me explain. 
While being in Cologne she traveled across the Hohenzollern Bridge which you'd think is just a simple bridge. No. The bridge is covered in locks. Every single lock represents love. Do you have any idea how much I love this idea? 

I liked the idea so much I started to research the bridge, looking for more information. I was able to find all kinds of cute pictures and information. This place quickly moved up on the list of places I want to go to. So much so that I called my boo and told him that I wanted us to go there. Here was the conversation (I found it very entertaining):
Me: I want to go to Cologne, Germany.
Him: Um..ok?
Me: I just read the greatest story about people putting locks on a bridge to represent them being together and their love. I want to attach a lock.
Him: Hmm, that sounds interesting.
Me: You think I'm a sap, don't you?
Him: Yes baby but it's so cute. 

I encourage all of you to look up the bridge or head over to Steph's page to read about it.
