a date most memorable...

Date: January 1, 2010.

James and I had only been dating about three months, but for this most memorable new year's date, he had scored tickets to see one of his favorite singers, Ledisi.



So I had on my sassy sparkly and a little-low-cut dress, and he was dressed to the nines in one of those crisp white shirts that just looks PERFECT on him (...and I digress...) - but of course one must eat dinner beforehand.

Across the street from Yoshi's is a little hole in the wall place that serves this:



(we're generally pretty boring pizza people - a good ol' margarita does it for us...)

And so the conversation ensued, to - what else? - new year's resolutions:

Cara: "I'd like to ...hmmm, go running with Mr. Darcy more this year." (Visions of a super skinny-minnie Cara, completing half-marathons in her spare time are dancing thru my head).

James: "I'd like to ...hmmm, marry you this year!"

Cara: jaw drops.

James: smiles.

Conversation: begins to take a turn for the much, much better.

Though we didn't end up getting engaged for a couple more months, I won't soon forget that night of new year's resolution conversations. His clearly trumped mine - and as for the dog? He gets some good runs in at the dog park just about every day. :)
