my friend ben

in march, i moved back home to my parents' basement and wasn't too happy about it. i left a life i loved back in ottawa, and wasn't looking forward to the summer months homeless, jobless, and virtually friendless.

then i started hanging out with my friend ben.



we played together every day.



sometimes we did boring things, and sometimes we did REALLY boring things...like getting caught in a hail storm on the side of a mountain for 2 hours...



despite all of the boring-ness, there never was a dull moment.











yesterday, my friend ben asked me to marry him. so i said sure!



i love him.

Sara that is so exciting. And such a cute post. I love that you found your friend Ben. It looks like you guys have so much fun together. Your mom has been one busy lady. 3 weddings she's a real woman. Good luck with all your wedding plans. Enjoy every minute of being in love with your bestie!!!
