after class, I walked through circular quay and went to meet tony in chippendale for lunch. it was our old neighbourhood and I took a little detour on the way so I could visit the first house we shared. it's the green house in the middle, only when we lived there it looked more like the house on the right, white and pretty run down.
I spied lemon pi in the kitchen and we shared a pork belly and slaw sandwich before digging into a slice of pear and ginger cake.
about koori radio at carriageworks and eventually found our way to the art gallery of new south wales where we saw anne landa award, which this year was called 'the space between us'. the video work that won was beautiful and moving and added to all of the small things that were making my day.
we made one last stop at a pretty bookshop before heading home to get ready for dinner.
we went to a new little italian restaurant in enmore for tea and I only have three poorly lit photos from the night because midway through dinner tony asked me to marry him.
I said yes and immediately lost my appetite from excitement. actually, I was lost for words and had to nod my reply. tony said that he knew I was really happy because my glasses started to fog up.
I loved that we got engaged in sydney because it meant that we could spend the next few days sharing our news with friends and family. tony even managed to open his first solo exhibition in sydney before it was time to drive back to wagga wagga.
and now we're home and happily engaged, though we can't wait to get married next year.
