Eight Years

Last night, Christine and I celebrated our eight year anniversary.

We met 12 years ago, and got married 8 years ago… I know, crazy isn’t it?

It was a really nice evening.

I got home around 5:15, so Christine could ‘get ready’.

Erin showed up around 6:30, to take over with Jack.

Then Christine and I drove downtown, parked, and walked to the Roaring Fork restaurant in the Stephen F. Austin hotel on Congress. Man, the food was amazing.

When we got there, the hostess told us “Happy Anniversary”. Then our waitress told us “Happy Anniversary”. We had mixed green salads… which were really good. I had the pork tenderloin, which was perfectly cooked, and had a flavorful mustard sauce. Christine had the pork shoulder which totally fell apart as she tried to pull the meat off the bone. It was succulent. Then we had the brown sugar creme brule. Ummmmm. And the chef had written “Happy Anniversary” on the serving plate that our dessert came on. They made us feel really special.

We exchanged gifts before we sat down. Our gifts to each other were perfect for each other… we both agreed on that.

After dinner, we walked over to the Omni Hotel where my office is, and took the hotel elevator to the roof top pool, just to look out over the city. How cool! We sat down and enjoyed the breeze for a few minutes and chatted before heading home.

Happy Anniversary babe! I love you!

(Oh, and Jack turned 18 months old yesterday too)
