Liz ❤ Dave

Coney is definitely our special date place. My fiance Dave and I met on Flickr, but Coney Island is one of the places we visited in NYC the first time we met in person, back in Sept. of 2006.

We were just friends for about two years before becoming a couple in 2008. One of the things that made him realize he was in love with me was a mix CD I sent to him in Scotland when he was sick, which included the song, “Coney Island Baby” by Tom Waits.

Incidentally, Waits mentions “a princess in a red dress” in the song. My email address and flickr name start with red dress (since way before I knew the song) and my wedding dress is going to be red!
