this morning i woke up with that lou reed song "perfect day" in my head which can only mean good things.
yesterday, c and i had the most perfect day. it was sunny and warm and c called in sick to work (he did have a sore throat). we headed downtown to get some zinc lozenges from london drugs and then we decided to get some christmas errands done too. we bought some stuff at lush and i bought a lovely pair of tall zip-up black boots which definitely put me in a good mood. when we got to the beach, we decided to take a walk along the sea wall and everything was golden and pretty with the waves crashing up high. i wish i had brought my lomo as it was a perfect day for picture-taking. we walked through stanley park and around lost lagoon and everything seemed so crisp and perfect. as we headed back to denman, we split a coconut cupcake and watched "garden state" which was playing at the rep theater. it wasn't that great of a movie, but i still managed to squeeze out a tear or two. i'm a sucker that way. after the movie, we walked home and got all cozy with some cuddlin' and hot chocolate. then, as a complete surprise to me, c dropped to his knee and proposed!! it certainly wasn't a hard-sell and i, of course, said yes. so now i've got a very beautiful and modern diamond ring that i can't help staring at and the most perfect boy in the whole wide world who wants me to be his wife.
like i said at the beginning, it really was the most perfect day.
