Engagement Anniversary

15 years ago today, Mr. Bromeliad climbed aboard a flight from Chicago to Indianapolis holding a bouquet of roses with a message tied on each rose. He got moved up to first class (got the free upgrades even back then!) and there started handing a rose to each passenger and showing them a picture of Girlfriend Bromeliad.

At the Indianapolis International Airport, one passenger after another deplaned and handed a rose to startled Girlfriend Bromeliad. (Back then, you could meet passengers at the gate.) Mr. Bromeliad gave her the last rose, which said "Will you marry me?"

Thus began our travels.

Mr. Bromeliad got me this bouquet today.
