8th Year of Marriage!

After all the nice dinners out we've had recently I was in the mood to do something a little different today as our anniversary rolled around this year. Andy and I very rarely get the opportunity to have lunch together during the work week and we couldn't recall ever doing so since we've lived in Durham.

(Our last lilly decided to bloom just in time.)

So that's exactly what we set aside time to do today. We had a beautiful lunch at Revolution, in my opinion they have the best food selection, laid back atmosphere and exceptional (+ quick) service. I love that they value their customers time; I can be in and out in less than 40 minutes which leaves plenty of time to commute there and back in an hour.

We had the perfect anniversary lunch:

For the last couple years Andy has been talking about getting a new desk chair; every week he checks the newspaper ads diligently looking for the perfect one. Last Saturday he announced that he'd found the exact one that he'd been wanting. We headed to the furniture store, and though it sits just a bit low at the desk we purchased the chair of his dreams...and I agreed that this was a nice anniversary gift to ourselves.
