Last weekend was our six year anniversary. What an odd even number that is. It seems so small to me. Maybe because we have spent pretty much every day together for the last 11 years. Actually we have spent the last amount of time together in the last 2 years than we ever have in the past due to work schedules. It just feels strange, like the 6 doesn't accurately reflect our life together. Not in a bad way, like yeesh only 6 years! It just feels like more...something.
With Justin's recent promotion we decided we would actually celebrate our anniversary this year. When we first got married we said that we would never just not do things for each other for our anniversary. It was OUR day. It is funny how quickly that gets kind of shoved aside when you have life going on. We usually at least get around to going out to dinner but not always on the actual day. This year it fell on a Saturday so we had to go out. We each had our version of a day off. I went to the spa for the afternoon. I have never had a real spa day before and I definitely could handle doing that again. Justin stayed home and had some quality time with his xbox. Later that night we went out to eat at a restaurant that we had never been to before. Generally when we go out, we go out for steak. This time we went out for Spanish tapas. The food was amazing! I had their "wine flight" which was a sampling of their top Spanish wines. Two of them I liked, two of them I didn't. I am trying to like wine and am at least starting to figure out what I do like and what I don't. So far I know that I don't like a woody taste. I like fruity and sweet. It might make some wine drinkers cringe, but whatever. I like it and it is "wine" so there.
We then went to a chocolate store for dessert and coffee. It was also delicious. The best part of the night was that Justin planned it. I think I plan so much of everything in our day to day life, that it is nice to have a night out that was planned for me. Not a here are my plans, you can join them if you would like, but a full out "I planned this night with you in mind."
