A memorable fish and chips

Phew!  Just taking a study break at work.  I have a little over two months until I take my seventh actuarial exam, the Group and Health Advanced exam, and feeling ok about it.  I’m not as further along as I’d like to be, but I wanted to be super far ahead so I guess I’m just slightly ahead of where I was last year.  But I have excuses. This summer has been a big traveling summer for me.  I took three trips to Philly (for friends’ weddings), one trip to Portland (to visit family), and one trip to the San Francisco.  I went up there to ask my girlfriend’s dad for her hand in marriage and he approved!  Most memorable moment: being seated at the far end of a long rectangular booth opposite him in an almost empty steak restaurant.  He was far away and I didn’t know if I should move closer to him but I eventually got up to sit closer.  The meal was quiet and it wasn’t until I managed to eat half my fish and chips that I was able to declare my love for his daughter… Now I just have to get a small circle.

Let's do this, she said.

Why is it called the Saturday Morning Market when it's on both Saturday and Sunday?  I didn't have an answer for her.

Taking a break at the Portland Japanese Gardens.

Engagement photos?  No, just trying too hard with the camera.
