Our First Date Revisited

Many Full Moons Later

Daniel took me out to recreate our first date for our "big date" yesturday.

We went to Pike Place Market.
Where he held my hand for the first time, five plus years ago.

We salivated over huge artichokes.
I had a veggie gyro and Dan had a BBQ Pork hum bow.

Those lobster tails were calling out to me.
I love seafood.

We bought Dan some new boots at our favorite store, John Fluevog.
Oh, and you can see my new ring from Favor by Monica Reed.
It's the thin gold one in the middle.
Did I ever tell you that Daniel and his buddy Craig made my engagement ring out of vintage silver coins?
The other one is my Dad CJ's mother's wedding ring.

We had to stop and get some chowder and seafood bisque from The Athenian.

Daniel bought me some pretty flowers.
I kissed him on the cheek.

It was a lovely afternoon.
It almost made me get butterflies in my tummy again.
Oh, how I had tummy butterflies when Dan first held my hand.


p.s. Do you have a first date that you would like to share.
I love when you tell me stories.

When Jack and I went on our first date, he took me to Old Time Diner in Mobile. He found out that I had never had seafood gumbo or a philly cheesesteak, so we ordered both and shared. Turns out the seafood gumbo had unshelled shrimp in it and he fished each one out and shelled it for me. Awwwwww. I have some awesome pics of that date!

What a nice day. I love your rings. I knew about Dan and Craig's part, but didn't realize that you had CJ's mother's ring. That's so cool.
