6 years into our forever...


Ok, so I gotta rave about my date night this weekend. David and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on Saturday. We decided to go see a movie, and then go to the Winery that is literally right across the street from where we are living. I must say, I was a little unsure of just how nice it would be, being that we are in the countriest of country areas out here. But let's start with the movie. We went to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, which was cute, and had my "guy" in it, which of course, made it fun to watch! Naturally, ol' Matthew M. was looking handsome, but not as handsome as MY guy! After the movie, we headed to the winery. As we started up the driveway, I felt as though I was magically transported to a vineyard in Italy. It was STUNNING! The restaurant was lovely, and we found a spot at the outside seating so we could enjoy the last hour of sunlight on the vineyards. We got our wine tastings, and exchanged cards. Mine was homemade, with a beautiful drawing on it ( my man has skills!) What a sweetie! We decided on a wine, and got a bottle. At that point, the fruit flies were getting to be a bit of a bother, so we headed inside. Just as we settled at a new table, there was a jazz band that was setting up for the night.....Dinner, wine, AND live music!? We ordered a bite to eat, and had great conversation. The music was so nice, and they even had a small dance floor, so got to enjoy a couple slow dances together. The night was absolutely PERFECT! To top it off, as if all of this wasn't enough romance for one night, we took a nice walk out by the vineyards after we ate, and had a private dance on the outside stage (complete with a few lengthy smooches!) I am so looking forward to spending the rest of my days with him, growing old and grey.....Happy Anniversary to us!
