Way back in 2007 when Kim and I bought this YBH together, we were among the first to move into the building after it had undergone it’s gut renovation. Some of the outdoor improvements were still being wrapped up, and one day I came home from work to find some still-damp cement near our back gate. Being the young, dashing charmer that I was (am), I quickly found a stick and got to work on this beauty:
Yup, it says SVKC as opposed to SVKV or something equally married-like. That’s right folks, we were (gasp!) unhitched when we signed the papers to a life of debt together. Of course the bank didn’t mind. Those were the days when mortgages were being tossed around like Skittles on Halloween and we were (are) blissfully in love! But I digress… As you now know, it’s officially been 4 years since we acquired the keys to our humble abode, and my concrete love note is still holding strong. A crack in the 7 seems to be growing each winter, but our initials are weathering the alley harshness nicely.
So, spill the beans, friends. Has anyone else ingrained any brownie-point-grabbing permanent sentiments in or around your home? Any Giving Tree style initials scrawled somewhere permanent?
