The letters

a lot of you have been asking me about the yellow letters in the photos of our home and how they came to be.




oddly enough, we have blockbuster to thank. on our way home from dinner a couple blocks away, topher and i walked by a bunch of guys dismantling the Blockbuster sign near our home. They were moving the store down a few blocks and getting rid of the older metal sign to replace it with the plastic versions you now see everywhere. a bit giddy from sharing a bottle of wine, we simply asked the guys if we could take a C and a K. those guys thought we were crazy - but we couldn't have been happier carrying those filthy (and HEAVY) things home at 11:30 at night.

we've had them for about 5 years. they hang proudly in our kitchen and also lent a great vibe to our wedding day celebration as well. thank you Blockbuster!

Amazing score! And convenient that it was "Blockbuster" and not "Movie Gallery" changing their sign. Hehehe. :)
