Save the Date Mosaic

Keith and I made this penguin using the free program Andrea Mosaic and a library of 6000 of the photos we've taken since we started dating.

To see the 1000 photos used in this mosaic in more detail, open the photo in a new window, or save it to your desktop.

There are no duplicate photos in the mosaic, although there are similar photos used more than once. When using your entire photo library, you will find that the over/underexposed photos that you've saved come in handy as the program tries to build your mosaic. (The photos in this mosaic are 100% unaltered.) The program also seemed to like scenery pictures from our trip to Hawaii and photos from Free Parking concerts.

The Proposal

Keith and I are excited to tell you that as of today we are engaged!

It happened suddenly, taking even Keith by surprise. He realized that he didn't know why he was waiting, and got down on one knee and proposed to me. He lamented that he did not have a ring, but I told him that was not the important part. He placed is brass rat (class ring from MIT) on my finger for the moment. We then went ring shopping together, and the second ring I tried on was perfect. Happily for me my fingers are the perfect size so we got to leave the store with the ring. Keith took me to the observation deck of the Prudential building and we went to the windows where we could locate our apartment. He got on his knee again, and proposed again with the ring.

We are very excited. We don't have any other details as of yet, but the date will most likely be Summer 2011.

Much Love,
Rebecca and Keith
