how do we celebrate two years?

We headed to Boulder to experience dining at of the top restaurants on my husband's list of places to try. He'd been talking about it for months so it was due time that we went to eat there.
Martin expertly ordered the wine and I felt proud watching.  The staff caught on quickly that he was in the industry and he and the waitress talked shop for a few minutes. 
The restaurant was one of those beautiful places that after almost every sip of water someone is there filling up your cup.  We enjoyed a true Italian feast...real Italian food that my grandparents would have been proud of.  
I even ate things I wouldn't have tried before like beets, duck egg in my carbonara, and lamb.  I didn't want to embarrass my husband and pick at my food...and surprisingly I really loved everything I ate.  Imagine that :)
We watched a lightning show outside the restaurant window as we talked and laughed. We realized as the restaurant crowd was thinning that we had been there for almost three hours. It's so nice to enjoy an evening of just talking and no other distractions. I always feel reconnected with my husband.  We drove home in the rain as the sky was illuminated from every direction from lightning that I thought should be on the cover of a National Geographic magazine. 

It was the perfect way to celebrate two years. 
Just the two of us.  


  1. Congratulations! Sounds like a wonderful day. And I love the cute little Anniversary leaf. :)

  2. Happy Anniversary!! Looks like you had a perfect date! I love that you've been married that long and can still talk for 3 hours... just like a new couple!
