The Fourteen Days of Valentine’s Day are here! At Dempsey & Carroll, we enjoy celebrating life’s major events, especially the ones that stem from love.
While love is in the air, we are inviting you to share your love letters, emails, texts, and post-its with us. All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before February 2014. On February 17th, we will select one submission as our favorite. The winning submitter will receive an engraved 2014 Calendar and our Sweet Sentiments.
To inaugurate the 14 days of Valentine’s Day, Dempsey & Carroll’s president Jennifer Pool shares her wedding vows.
I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold;
I cannot promise you an easy pathway
That leads away from change or growing old.
But I can promise all my heart’s devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;
A love that’s ever true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.
(inspired by This I Can Promise, author unknown)
Exchange of Rings
With every smile and touch of your hand you remind me to live in the moment
There are no second chances
We love each other every day squeezing everything we can
Out of the world around us
I’ve found myself in you
My best friend
Forever is a long time
But somehow shorter than it took to find you
I will always love you because
Somehow I always have
Thank you for loving me the way you do.
Love letters, notes, and vows are what we hold close to the heart. Our sentiments become immortal in these letters, a permanent reminder of what love is and how we can integrate it in our daily lives. Now that’s something worth celebrating!
