Thirteen years and counting!!!

Candles, tablecloth, cloth napkins, red wine, salad, shrimp scampi, roasted parmesan asparagus, in a quiet retreat with no kids....delightful. A dear friend inspired me to do this "special home date" for my husband. Thanks, Marjorie! It was wonderful!

My sweet husband and I reached our 13th anniversary this past week, and while we enjoyed an evening out (at the San Diego County Fair!), I still envisioned a more private evening to celebrate. So anyways, last night, I set up this romantic, little table for two, complete with china, in our bedroom! Isn't that fun?! Well, we thought so; you should try it sometime! :wink:

My hubby has always appreciated the finer things and my efforts weren't in vain! (For those of you wondering, the kids were happily packed off to Grandma and Grandpa's house for the night--you know we didn't want to be interrupted during dessert...lol!)

Of course, a photo blog post is worthless without a picture!
