Taking a break from skiing the snowy slopes in Aspen, Colorado, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones shared a stunning selfie she and husband Michael Douglas, celebrating the very location Douglas proposed to her over a decade ago.

“16 years ago, this was the spot where my husband proposed,” Zeta-Jones captioned the image of the couple posted on Tuesday, March 15. Douglas appears to be holding a selfie stick to capture the he and his wife cuddling along with the beautiful Colorado mountain range behind them. The blue sky and snow-capped mountain landscape looks like it was taken straight from a postcard!

A day earlier, on Monday, March 14, Zeta-Jones had shared another selfie of the couple riding up to the top of the mountain on a ski lift. With her arm draped around her hubby’s shoulder the couple grin ear to ear. Zeta-Jones captioned the photo, “Gotta love skiing in the sun!”

Douglas proposed to Zeta-Jones in Aspen on New Year’s Eve in 1999 with an enormous 10-carat diamond engagement ring that was surrounded by 28 smaller diamonds. Not only that, it was an antique 1920s Fred Leighton engagement ring and estimated to be worth $1 million! The two were married less than a year later at the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City in front of approximately 350 friends, family, Hollywood stars and musicians.

Zeta-Jones and Douglas recently celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary last winter. On November 18, 2015 she shared a throwback photo writing, “Happy Anniversary dearest Michael! Loving our life together, here’s to the next 15!” They’ve got two children together, a 15-year-old son Dylan and 12-year-old daughter Carys.
