Rodeside Proposal

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the charming "roadside photographs" by Jen Zahigian of Oakland, California. (They're for sale in her Etsy store.)

Jen noticed that I adore love notes written large on walls. She sent me an email with this lovely picture.

She explains: "I was walking near the BART tracks in West Oakland (not the snazziest of neighborhoods, but interesting and full of photographic opportunity!) and saw that a lovebird had painted `Will You Marry Me' on a billboard. The billboard was up for a few days and then of course, painted over. The sentiment made me smile, and I couldn't help but wonder how the recipient felt upon viewing the proposal."

I think I would say "yes" to a proposal like this, what about you?

PS: Thank you Jen for writing me!

Aw.. this is so sweet. & would have taken a bit of planning to get it set up & then to bring his partner to it in a seemingly random way.

Simple things that have taken some thought are the sweetest. =) x

Those block letters are so sincere and solid. How could she refuse?
