February 7th, 2004 - February 7th, 2015... Yup, last weekend marked ELEVEN years of married life (and almost 14 years since we started dating). Pre-kids, we were always big on going away to celebrate our wedding anniversary - from scuba diving in Fiji to staying in a French chateau, we've had some memorable adventures. Anniversaries have been a little more low key since we started a family but this year I felt it was time for another special getaway.

Thanks to the help of our bay area 'family' I was able to organise a child free long weekend in wine country. Child free. Wine country. CHILD FREE! (Given we've had 1 night alone in almost 4 years, it was kind of a big deal). And the best part - Mitch had NO idea. I really wanted to surprise him, and somehow I sneakily managed to pull it off. I called him after dropping the boys at my friends house and with 15mins notice, whisked him away to the most relaxing weekend in beautiful Napa/Sonoma.

So thankful for amazing friends who made this possible, and most of all - so thankful for this man. Two kids, four countries & countless adventures with my love... What a whirlwind 11 years!

  1. So, so glad you got this time together! High five for being able to pull this off!

  2. I haven't been by your blog in so long- o how the boys have grown! Congrats on pulling off a wonderful anniversary surprise!

  3. Incredible experience. From their top class manager along with all the servers, bartenders etc. we could not have asked for more. The food at Wedding location in Chicago was delicious and everything was served so promptly. We had Potato & Leek soup for our appetizer and it was the best soup I have ever tasted!


Thanks for reading, your comments make my day :-)
