14 years ago...

Fourteen years ago on a cold winter day we ventured off to New Hampshire. Patrick was looking at possibly going to grad school and had an interview. I waited patiently in the hall and then we headed out to find a restaurant that a friend's parents recommended. As PK drove the little car that other friend's had lent to us, he seemed flustered and ended up going down a one-way street the wrong way. After that little adventure, we found the restaurant and settled inside away from the blistering wind.

Although it was lunch, Patrick ordered us lobster. A little unusual to indulge at lunch, but we were on vacation. When the waitress said she wasn't sure if they had any yet that day, he looked like he was going to throw up! When she came back in and said she did have two left, he practically screamed with delight. Why all this odd behavior from my normally very calm guy? At the end of the meal he explained that he had a plan for the rest of his life and the first step was including me. With that, he popped open a ring box and asked me to marry him.
