We had a very low-key 6th wedding anniversary this past weekend. Compared to our trip to Hawaii last year, this year we decided to keep it simple. No fancy trip. Just the two of us hanging out. On Saturday we were super productive in terms of chores and got ready super early for dinner. Since we hadn’t had a good Japanese meal in a while, that was the dinner of our choice. The restaurant that we wanted to try is very popular and doesn’t take reservations. It’s located in a neighborhood that is notorious for the lack of street parking. It was our mission to arrive early to wait before the restaurant opened at 5pm. This was definitely our lucky weekend. We landed a prime free street parking spot not far from the restaurant. We were the second in line for a table. The food was super delicious:
The fish was so fresh and the panko crusted oysters were crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
I loved the parking spot so much that we walked around the neighborhood just to occupy it for longer. After some frozen yogurt, latte, impulse purchase of a cool hat, and Bob petting a neighborhood dog at a funky shirt store/cafe, we headed home with great satisfaction.
On our real anniversary yesterday, the weather resembled that on our wedding day six years ago: sunny, breezy, in the 70s. It was such a glorious day for a celebration. My morning was relaxing and peaceful: reading in bed with a cup of homemade Indian filtered coffee while Bob chatted with his parents on Skyp.e. Our pastor’s teaching at church was great and to the point. The afternoon was restful and rejuvenating. Plus some intimate time without any concerns regarding making a baby is always welcome on an anniversary. A walk around the beach and pizza dinner at night with champagne concluded our anniversary weekend perfectly.
We do realize that this is our last wedding anniversary celebration before the babies come. Last year things were very uncertain in regards to our fertility journey around this time. What a difference a year makes. I really cherish what we have right now, but I look forward to and cannot wait to experience what is to come on our next wedding anniversary. Maybe on that day our biggest concern would be to find a good babysitter?
