It's been a little while since I last wrote but I couldn't think of a better reason to take a break from work (as much as possible at least!). It hasn't even been a month yet since Burger Boy popped the question and even as we start to talk more seriously about plans and numerous bridal magazines are strewn all throughout our apartment, it's still a tough thing to believe - we're getting married! We've both been so giddy and to celebrate the decision to spend our lives together, we took a quick trip to Montreal.

Under cloudy skies, we sat at the one and only picnic table at the park. The park was unusually crowded but that didn't stop us from digging into some cheese and drinking wine out of plastic Solo cups. At one point during our picnic, a sandwich-sized foil package was placed before each of us. As I peeled away the foil, I was stunned and asked where we had bread and meat hiding at our apartment. Burger Boy proudly explained that he had pastrami on rye sandwiches shipped from Katz's deli in New York. And at that point I teared up. This man loved me enough to be so thoughtful as to ship me the one item I said was the best thing I've ever eaten. Yes, I cried over a deli sandwich but if you've had the sandwich before, you get it.
