this past thursday night, frank and his fellow co-workers at the Impossible Project , were featured in an Impossible staff show. some their awesome photos are below. for those of you not aware, the Impossible Project is a company that is slowly but surely re-introducing the world to instant film, i.e. Polaroid film. as you can see from the the images below, the film produces a really great vintage-y picture. but anyone out there who still owns a Polaroid camera should give the film a shot (no pun intended).
in other news, me and frank are in the midst of the pre-wedding craze. on saturday we had a cake tasting at babycakes in the city. we got to taste some pretty amazing things including a chocolate cupcake, a vanilla cupcake, a mocha frosting brownie cupcake (which was the most amazing thing i’ve tasted in a long while!), two different doughnuts, and a chocolate chip cookie sandwich. whew, i hadn’t had that many sweets in a long time. if you’re ever able to sample the gluten free and vegan goodies from babycakes please do so, i highly recommend them.
some pretty sprouts at the farmer’s market.
this is dry dock, our local wine and spirits store. this past wednesday they returned to their original storefront that had gotten damaged during hurricane sandy back in october. we’re super happy to seem them back!
this past weekend was a special one. not only did frank and i celebrate our 3 year anniversary, but we celebrated a year of being engaged. 3 years ago this past sunday we had our second date. that was a special date for both of us. by the end of it we had both realized we had a connection far deeper than a physical attraction. the date started off at the lincoln square cinema to see a movie. afterwards frank suggested we walk through central park. we walked from the west side to the east side, pausing for a moment to look at wollman rink (if you’ve ever seen the movie serendipity then you know which one i’m talking about). as we exited the park frank kissed me. a kiss that, as i told my friends the next day, solidified my feelings that this was a man i never wanted to let go of. we continued our walk out of the park and were right by the plaza hotel, when to my surprise frank playfully threw a snowball at my back. it was a very silly and innocent moment that i will never forget. we stopped briefly at the restaurant, serendipity for coffee and dessert. we found ourselves walking and talking for over 30 blocks until we stopped at a restaurant for some drinks.
2 years later we celebrated our anniversary by re-doing our second date. we took our stroll through the park, and stopped at wollman rink. i turned around and frank was on one knee asking me to marry him. this year we celebrated our 3 year anniversary by doing the same thing(minus the proposal of course). it has been one of the best years of my life, one marked by immense happiness and a love i never thought was possible. i can’t wait for more strolls, discussions, movie-watching, hand-holding, picture-taking, disagreements, kisses, and everything else that we share with one another..
