Our Spot

Have I ever told you that Matt proposed to me in a parking garage? No? It's a long story, but it was quite the perfect proposal. Simple, and somewhere that was a special place for the two of us. When me and Matt were dating we spent a lot of our summer nights in a parking garage downtown long boarding...okay so he long boarded and I just cruised on my butt (hello have you not met me? Clumsy things do better when sitting down.) But that really isn't what makes it so special. I think what made it such a special place for us was the fact that it was our secret little place, our spot in town. After we'd be done long boarding we'd sit on the roof of the garage with the entire city at our feet and just talk. Talk about nothing really, but about EVERYTHING, for hours upon hours upon hours. We became best friends there. We fell in love there really. And I think it was there in that garage that I realized that Matt could make me laugh more than anyone, EVER. Well, the weather has finally been getting decent around here so this weekend we went on a date to our garage and long boarded the night away. It was pretty dang sweet, and you can count on us spending many more a night over there...and maybe we'll let our little Indian tag along too.

  4. That is the cutest story ever! I don't know you and Matt IRL obviously, but you both seem so cute and funny and just perfect for each other!

  5. Ha I do the same thing, I wore out almost all my sneakers longboarding. I would be riding down the canyon on my bum and to slow down I would let my shoes trail, one shoe had no sole left! Cute story, I like simple proposals, they seem more, real.
