Joyeux Anniversaire de Mariage – 14 years

While in Paris last week we accidently stumbled upon the love locks of Pont de l’Archevêché

With our anniversary coming up (July 3rd, 1999) we were inspired to add our own love lock to the bridge over the Seine on the Pont de l’Archevêché bridge.

The locks you buy have 3 keys. One for each of the lovers. And one that is thrown into the Seine. The idea is that to undo the love you’d have to use your key or you’d have to swim to the bottom of the Seine (shudder) and find the key for your lock from the thousands of others that site upon the riverbed.

Joyeux Anniversaire mon ami! Je t’aime!
