Memory Lane 7-7-7

After a week and a half of enjoying our summer off (we went to Houston to visit family for a week, then a quick trip to Dallas) we are home again and enjoying some down time with just us and the puppies. Today I realized it has been exactly 5 years since Lucas and I got engaged! We both realized it at the same time.

Me: Hey, babe what day is it?
Lucas: Ummm, July 7th.
Together: Hey, it's when we got engaged! 

Aww, such fond memories. I still remember how special of a day it was; July 7, 2007. A perfect day, 7-7-7 

It started out w/a sweet card.

He thoughtfully included directions because even though i'd been there a million times, he knew I'd still get lost. lol

One of our favorite places to go was the Lock & Dam Park on the Savannah River in Augusta, Georgia. We used to take the dogs on walks, go hiking, or ride our bikes along the river and have picnics. I loved that he chose that place to propose to me.

 No celebration is complete without a pinata......filled with rose petals! :)

The spot where he proposed :)
Afterwards, we shared a candlelit dinner. He actually brought everything here! Chairs, table, and even table linens! Plus food, of course, from a little Mexican place we'd found together. Dee-licious!

He even brought the wine glasses from our first date on September, 16, 2005, at the Air Force Ball. Isn't that a sweet touch?

Can't believe it's already been 5 years, and then again I can't believe it's only been 5 years. I can't imagine my life without him.
