Before my husband and I ever started dating, we were long-distance friends who couldn’t seem to get the timing right.

On a trip to New Orleans, he bought the crushed penny on the left from Cafe Du Monde and held onto it for years, giving it to me when we met in person for the first time and knew we wanted to spend our lives together.

The crushed penny on the right is one we bought together from Cafe Du Monde during our honeymoon a few years later.
