west side highway
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..
