The last six years have been a BLAST and it’s because I married this awesome guy who I just can’t get enough of. We were lucky this year that our anniversary landed on a Saturday, so we had the whole day to celebrate. And celebrate we did.
I woke up to the aroma of breakfast being cooked in the kitchen and a card waiting. I ripped the card open and found (along with a sappy lovey-dovey message) a schedule of the day’s activities. He knows I like to have a plan in place and a schedule. He knows my love language.
After a lovely homemade breakfast, we stopped for some coffee and headed to Louisville to do some hiking in some of the fabulous parks there. Once we were exhausted from all that walking, Matt took me to a bagel sandwich shop he had scouted out, called Please and Thank You. IT WAS DIVINE. I wish I had taken a picture of my sandwich because it was one of those kinds of food experiences. A veggie sandwich on an everything bagel with cream cheese. We washed it down with a Laura Palmer, their take on the classic ice tea and lemonade mix. Again, delicious. I could have eaten about three of those sandwiches.
While munching on my dessert of homemade rice krispy treat that was the size of my face, we meandered down to a cute boutique called Revelry Boutique Gallery. We stumbled upon a gem, ladies and gentlemen! There was so much cool art hanging on the walls, handmade jewelry, decor, and Kentucky items I just wanted to buy the whole lot. The owner was super sweet and even let us bring in Wickett to enjoy the store. We came away with some good purchases to commemorate the trip.
Matt’s “yield” magnet. I put it on the freezer to remind myself to think before eating ice cream. Then realize that OF COURSE I do need to eat it, and go ahead and scoop out a bunch. A “yield” sign is a lot better than a “stop” sign in this case.
Oh, and now you want to see pictures of us from dating and each year of marriage?? OK, wish granted.
Even though we went on a huge trip to Mexico for our 5th year anniversary (which is hard to top, folks), this day is still one on my favorites. We just spent the whole day together. After Louisville, we went to the pool, out to dinner, then to a movie. Love this man.
