Padlocks on Portland Bridges Display LOVE

The tradition of showing off a couples love for one another has been demonstrated all over the world.

Portland bridges that span the Willamette river are no exception and during a recent river walk we

took pictures. It seems that most of the locks with names and dates are recently added and crews

regularly remove them. The ones that are left hanging are routinely painted over when

maintenance teams comes through and slap paint on the metal fencing. I have never thought about

locking my own terms of affection to a fence. To be honest...I had never heard of

locking love to a bridge.

Does that make me out of touch, less romantic or non committal? 

NOT at all! I simply was uneducated in this gesture of everlasting love.

Now that I have been enlightened it makes sense for me to shop for a lock and either have it engraved or sharpie my wifes name next to mine and heart us forever. A magnificent way to display my devotion and capture memories for future BLOG.

Wondering which Portland bridge this is pictured above? Would you like to know the bridge that I'm considering locking our love to? I proposed to my beautiful wife in San Francisco at mid span on the Golden Gate Bridge. We were not driving thankfully so I was not hit with the $ toll or distracted by traffic on the bridge. It was VERY romantic. I love surprising Courtney, it's a wonderful memory that we will share for the rest of our lives. There are many lovely memories.

Now I'm off to the hardware store :-)

If you would like to ask me any questions...I welcome them. I'm happy to let you know where the closest ACE Hardware is or Lowes even the local Home Depot is close by.
