Last Friday, for our anniversary, we ended up calling in a sitter.
The last time we hired a sitter was when Nathan was 6 months old. If you do the math, that is over 2 years ago.
You can imagine my apprehension about leaving not just one but two kids with a sitter.
I got all dolled up. Well, as dolled up as a girl can get after having been at work all day.
And we headed out to dinner, to a Michelin one star restaurant.
This is the restaurant inside of the hotel I was staying when we met up for our first date. Can you call it a date if other co-workers were with you? Hm...
This is also the hotel where we had our first kiss (I sound 16, right?).
So, this place holds memories.
So many memories.
We had a champagne aperitif.
And there was the amuse bouches (the appetizers before the appetizers).
And a delicious four course meal, wine and of course cheeses.
And then the piece de resistence, this amazing dessert with the inscription "Joyeaux Anniversaire de Marriage 2012". I love this place.
We did, with pain au chocolate.
It was a magical night that ended way too early.
The best present of all, both kids slept in the next day. I would call it a successful anniversary.
