We are back

Rob whisked me off to Winston-Salem, NC to celebrate our anniversary. While we were there we visited the art district, went to the movies, enjoyed sight-seeing and had a wonderful anniversary dinner.

We saw The Bucket List which had us crying at the end. We recommend seeing the movie.

Locating the perfect restaurant for our anniversary dinner was a comedy of errors. Rob thought we would explore the city and find the perfect place. I am much more of a planner but since he put this anniversary event together, I agreed. Downtown Winston-Salem doesn't have a restaurant district so after the movie we drove around searching for a place to eat. We ended up feeling a little bit like Goldilocks.

  • The first restaurant was too casual (sandwiches and salads)

  • The second restaurant's wait was over an hour

  • The third restaurant was too smokey

  • The forth restaurant was too expensive

  • The fifth restaurant was a pizza joint

  • The sixth restaurant was perfect!

We had a great waiter and the food was excellent. It was a wonderful anniversary. We had so much fun we decided every year we should go away for our anniversary.

Igor had a wonderful time with his grandparents while we were away!

Kevin and I used to go away for our anniversaries...something that's been hard to reinstate since becoming parents because we don't have family nearby. Anyway, sounds like a wonderful weekend!
