The Greatest Adventure

i wasn’t sure if we should post this on our blog..but, well, this is the kind of news i want to shout from the mountaintop. yesterday, monica and i got engaged. i struggled out of bed, with my injured back and took her to the top of dinosaur mountain, where we had once discovered the old abandoned treehouse, among pepper trees, lizards and hummingbirds, and i asked her to be my wife.

times have been pretty tough lately, so until i can afford a ring, i made one for her out of a flower, like robin hood. we had a picnic by the treehouse, of tuna sandwiches, grapes & strawberries, a caprese  salad, and “leung cha” (cool tea). afterwards we walked around, and it almost seemed like the earth was presenting us with gifts–i found a tiny, hatched egg shell, and monica found a dried seedpod perfectly shaped like a boat. my head is still swimming and i am dizzy with happiness and feel like my heart could explode at any minute.
