No, this isn't an homage to my favorite calendar (Studs & Spurs) but rather a fond memory of the weekend I got engaged. Because nothing says "I love you" quite like some armor.
On this Friday, one year ago, Puff and I were happily bitching about the cold weather in New York City on a long weekend getaway. Puff had lived in NYC for several years and loves to be there during the holidays. While it was definitely a fun (and memorable) trip, the part I loved the most was slipping that engagement ring on my finger and getting to giggle and squeal with delight. (Once we were out of the park and back in a warm car!)
The next day, Puff and I set out to explore The Met and I snapped this photo while we were wandering. There was a group of children sitting on the floor around this huge life-size display of a solider on horseback. They were all sketching their favorite parts. And this part was my favorite. And is since one of my all-time favorite photos I have ever taken.
I'm just happy I can explain to people that it was made even more special by the special life-changing moment that happened the night before!
