today is a special day...

7 years ago today, i said yes to something that has literally changed my life. david and i were off in boston visiting some of my friends from my childhood and we had spent an awesome weekend picking apples, picking up cool finds at garage sales (i still have my super large pepper grinder that we got for $1) and sightseeing around boston. an awesome weekend!

it was our last day in boston, our bags were packed and we were ready to head home. i had spotted that burger king had some pokemon toys in their kid's meals and i urged david to go and get me one from down the street (i loved pokemon - ok so i am a geek). my friends had already left their cambridge apt for work and school and we needed a quick bite before we headed to the airport.

david came back with the burger king meal and he said "well they didn't have any of the pokemon toys yet"- i was sad but then he said "they did have this" and he pulled out a ring from the burger king bag. david started to cry and got down on 1 knee and asked me to marry him.

i don't remember much after that except that i said "yes". and wow, what a crazy 7 years it has been!

i don't have a picture right now handy from that time but i do have this LO i did about 3-4 years ago that talks about us - actually now that i think about it, this is from the wedding of our boston friends when we went to see them get married from 4 years ago!


so here is to saying yes. and 61 pearl st (the apt we got engaged in). and to pokemon. and to us.

can't wait to see what the next 7 x 7 years bring!

oh before i forget, i will post about bottlecaps later today!
