    My feet have never returned to the ground.

    Hi,

    We didn't know much about each other twenty years ago. We were guided by our intuition; you swept me off my feet. It was snowing when we got married at the Ahwahnee, Years passed, kids came, good times, hard times, but never bad times. Our love and respect has endured and grown. We've been through so much together and here we are right back where we started 20 years ago—older, wiser—with wrinkles on our faces and hearts. We now know many of life's joys, sufferings, secrets and wonders and we're still here together. My feet have never returned to the ground.

    What does the red sentence mean?

    Thanks a lot

    I really don't know.

    I love that passage!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I think no woman will refuse it.

    Re: My feet have never returned to the ground.

    By the way, how do you guys understand "with wrinkles on our faces and hearts", I can imagine wrinkles on our face.

    Does it mean "We experienced a lot"?

    That's how I understand it
