day of fun.

we had a great time celebrating our anniversary yesterday. hubster left work at 11am, and we decided to go downtown, have lunch, and wander around. here’s what we did:

first, we had lunch at this place one of my bff’s had told me about, gaulart & maliclet. it was very yummy. they have lunch specials for under $10 that include a glass of white or red french house wine. i had chilled cucumber soup, a yummy cheese, and some crusty bread with the house merlot. mmmmm.

next, we wandered down broad street and came to the old provost exchange building. hubster had never been there, and i hadn’t been since i was a kid, so we decided to go in and take a little tour.

next, we wandered toward east bay street to grab coffee and dessert at one of my fave bakeries, aptly named baked.

some more pics from our wandering about (i don’t know why i didn’t take *any* pictures of the two of us together! silly me. whenever we go downtown, i get so taken in by all the photo opportunities…)

after leaving downtown, we did a little bit of shopping. we’ve been looking for a bench to go underneath our front window. after *not* finding one we liked (that didn’t cost an arm & a leg), we went to dinner at the restaurant where we got engaged. i left my camera in the car, so i had to settle for taking pictures with my phone.

freakin' HUGE piece of cheesecake for dessert. i devoured the rest of it after lunch today. 😉

we had a lovely day. we talked and laughed and walked around & enjoyed the beautiful weather. it’s been a great eight years filled with happiness, love, and also trials & tribulations, and i’m proud of how we’ve persevered through the few trying times. here’s to another sixty years together! 🙂
