My dear friend, Emily, came into town to visit this weekend. We’re pretty low maintenance, so our event of the day was a walk along the Reedy Creek trail and up onto the bridge over I-440.

This bridge is a pretty special place for me. On March 6, 2009, my husband asked me to marry him on this bridge. As women tend to do, I made a mental note of many of the details of that day, including exactly where we were standing. Turns out we were even with the merge sign.

After a walk in the winter air, we finished the afternoon with some coffee at Cup A Joe on Hillsborough Street. I always have fun with Emily and we’ve been on some pretty amazing adventures together. But that 30 minutes in the coffee shop will be pretty memorable and I can’t put my finger on why.

I love taking these little snapshots because they remind me what a good Saturday is all about.
