Lucky girl

When we met for our first real-world date, as promised, he brought me chocolate raspberry truffles. On top of that, he also brought tulips from Pike Place Market, a historic open-air market in downtown Seattle. The ones above are to mark the seventh anniversary of that first date.

He's a great guy. I'd introduce you, but he's taken.
