New name, New things – My First Blog

Standard

After continuously stalking my friends’ blogs, I finally gave in.  I’m not sure what I’ll write about, but you’ll just have to keep checking back to see!

As my first post, I’d like to jog everyone’s memory back to a lovely story about a girl and boy, in love.. and how he asked her to be his wife.

I love guided tours and my favorite place in the city is the Brooklyn Bridge. Earlier that month, Arion told me about plans to take a tour of the Brooklyn Bridge. Little did I know, Arion had arranged for this to be a private tour. We did half of the tour before arriving at the second set of pillars on the Brooklyn side of the bridge. Here the guide explained the story of the bridge’s chief engineer whose dedication to the project led to a stroke and paralysis on the right side of his body. His wife became his “right hand woman” and “pillar of strength” enabling his dream to be completed. The guide went on to say that this is where Miranda and Steve reunite in the Sex and the City movie (Arion’s cue)… continuing with, “This is also where Arion proposed to Heather”… I turn around in shock to find Arion already on one knee with the ring box open. I fall into him, crying and screaming and at some point after the hyperventilation had subsided, say YES!

Happy 2 month anniversary, Arion!  I love you more everyday.
