Sunday, Hubby and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. Though, we’re in the dead of winter, the weather was pretty much the same as it was 6 years ago. A lovely, 65+ degree day. We kept our celebration pretty low key this year. A week or so prior, I booked our go-to sitter and made dinner reservation at a restaurant we’ve been wanting to try out. Saturday, I took RJ out with me to run some errands. When we arrived home, RJ working off of a 20 minute nap was driving me nuts. Hubby asked if I needed a drink. A question I found a little strange, especially there wasn’t any chilled wine in the fridge. He kept asking so I checked out the wine cabinet to find it fully stocked! He usually replenishes my supply, he’s not a wine drinker, for my birthday. He didn’t this year, so this was a pleasant surprise. He also got a frame for our marriage license. *We haven’t framed that or our degree…*
Sunday morning as we were getting ready for church,we try to explain to RJ that it was our anniversary. We told him it was the day Mommy and Daddy got married. In true RJ fashion, he was totally excited as if he understood and then exclaimed that he got married too!! We followed church with brunch at Mimi’s Cafe and then
tidied, cleaned the house before the sitter arrived. It’s been a while since RJ has spent time with the sitter. We’ve scheduled our last couple of date nights during Parents’ Night Out at his school. I was a little nervous about his reaction to staying with the sitter. He started out like this:
He did shed some tears as we were leaving. However, before we made it to the restaurant, his sitter sent me this text message.
We decided to try Larkins on the River.
We’d heard great things about the restaurant. However, in the 7 years we’ve lived here, this was our first time dining there. Everything we heard was true! The food and service were awesome. The she crab soup was the best we’ve had ,bar none! It was a great night. We laughed, talked and reflected on the past 6 years. *Talk of RJ only took up 5% of the evening!*
Here we are… one home, one child and two dogs later…and still…
