5 years older, wiser and more in love!
And our last anniversary as a family of two!
I headed home from the bakery this afternoon absolutely exhausted. My mom reminded me: “you need to rest.”
So rest I did – 2 hours horizontal on the couch! Plus a short nap before we got ready for dinner.
Professional Photographer required!
If only Pumpkin could work a camera…
Pumpkin has decided to move in this week. I think she misses her family [who are traveling] too much!
Matt and I walked (~1.26 miles) to dinner tonight at l’etoile! It’s been on our list of restaurants to try for nearly two years now.
We dined on the porch and had a really great experience – I felt like we could be back in Sonoma on our honeymoon!
I drank a whole bottle of wine sparkling water to celebrate. Sparkling water from Greece > sparkling water from our basement. Matt sipped the good juice.
Amuse bouche! Heirloom tomato, feta, basil, balsamic
To start, I enjoyed this awesome kale salad. I loved that the kale was shaved – so much easier to eat! I said it was like slaw minus the gross cabbage : )
Matt’s salad was equally as good – check out that goat cheese medallion!
Palate cleansing bread with salty olive oil –
For my entrée, I ordered the scallops
They were totally delicious – and I loved the bed of mixed salady things they were served atop.
Matt had the duck entrée. I’m not a huge duck fan, but the pureed beets mixed with the blue cheese and walnut salad was DIVINE!
Of course I was dreaming of wedding cake for dessert, and we were excited to find a coconut cake on the menu!
Sadly this was the only part of our dinner that was a bit disappointing. The frosting was cream cheese and tasted nearly ALL cream cheese and the cake part was cold and a bit dense/dry, but of course it still tasted good!
We enjoyed our stroll home and ran into Seamane and Rob who were out celebrating their 12th anniversary this weekend!
