Matt and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on Sunday. It’s unreal that 6 years have gone by so quickly. With everything going on, I honestly hadn’t put that much thought into it. But on Saturday night Matt sent me a text (from the next room) telling me to check my email.
I opened it to find, Can you say Garithes Yiouvetsi? I can’t either, but it sounds good.
It was followed with a link to our favorite restaurant’s February menu. And that was followed with a link to a Salsa dancing class at a dance collective here in town. It was such a fun surprise!
But first, for my record, a walk through our last anniversaries:
Year 1 we flew into Oregon and drove all along the coast, spending time in the Redwood Forest and exploring the ridiculous beauty in that part of the country.
Year 3 we had a 10 day old and if I recall correctly (which I do) we had to take him to his 10 day check-up. We were sleep-deprived and hanging on to sanity by a thread. Matt got me flowers and a card and we called it good.
Year 4 we left Micah with friends and went to the Silk Road (where we went this year). I was also pregnant with Asher. I don’t think I have a picture of us that year but I do have a picture of Micah that my friend snapped while she was watching him for us that night.
Year 5 we had a quick dinner and then went to see the Harlem Globe Trotters. We only got to stay about 30 minutes though because Asher wouldn’t take a bottle for the first 8 months of his life (he would only nurse), so my parents called us to say that they had tried everything but he wasn’t having it. It was still fun though, I’d like to see them perform again.
(I’m sorry, I’ve searched and I can’t find those pictures, though I know we took some. C’est la vie.)
So this year we again went to the Silk Road. Matt’s mom is so thoughtful and called ahead and had a gift card waiting for us! So sweet!
But first we had to stop in to see our very, very good friends’ new baby boy, Hayz.
Then we were off to dinner. The Silk Road is a tapas-style restaurant, which means that you order several different things and they come in smaller portions so that you can try more. The menu features dishes from all over the world, which is totally right up our alley.
