While two years doesn’t really seem like a long time since our wedding vows, a lot has happened even just in the past year. I can’t speak for Bryan but these two years, and particularly the last several months, have been truly wonderful. As we surpass the two-year anniversary mark we are certainly moving towards another adventure. Thankfully, the adventure didn’t come too early that we couldn’t celebrate this time just the two of us.
I think we both really enjoy our anniversary weekend and the ease we have in celebrating it. We haven’t strayed too much over the years with what our anniversary weekend entails. This year, we got to Lake Washington both Saturday and Sunday to watch the air show with the Blue Angels. We went once with friends and we went the other day just the two of us after having a great brunch after church.
While Monday wasn’t the weekend we both got to skedaddle from work early to go to our last doctor’s appointment until our due date. Still healthy and as normal as can be.
After our early departure we drove home and then walked the half mile to Harvest Vine, sans reservation so we could sit at the bar and watch the chefs do their magic. We also worked on picking names because honestly we don’t have a name picked out for either gender. We had another amazing meal; gazpacho, heirloom tomatoes with sherry vinegar, olive oil & garlic, roasted eggplant with tomato frito, idiazábal sheep cheese & anchovy, spanish octopus cooked on the plancha with garbanzo puree, rabbit foreleg confit & grilled loin with baby carrots & marcona almond picada, and goat milk cheesecake with fresh berries. We ended up chatting up the chef nearest us for quite some time and left feeling super stuffed and again just amazed at the flavors and finesse of the kitchen. Bryan gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers which also included two roses and a selection of chocolates. I am one lucky girl!
Year three is going to be great!
