This morning, Gene and I went to the jeweler’s to get Gene’s ring a bit smaller. Thankfully our jeweler is pretty awesome and does these adjustments free of charge.

I chose Ellensburg, specifically where Anderson, our dorm room, was and the surrounding campus. I thought it was fitting as this… Continue reading Eburg necklace & completed puzzle
I worked late on Wednesday to help one of my managers with a parent meeting at a school. Because of that I got to leave early from work today. I wanted to have lunch with Gene but I got out a bit before lunchtime so I swung over to the Botanic Gardens first. It was… Continue reading Botanic garden and pizza with Gene
