This won’t…

…be a sappy anniversary post.  I promise.  Yesterday Tim and I celebrated fourteen years of marriage.  Fourteen!  In some ways it seems like only four and in others it seems like forty.  But in an effort not to get into all that reflection, let me tell you about some highlights of our day.

Because we’ve been trying hard to be thrifty and to plan for the holidays we forewent our usual anniversary date.  Instead, we celebrated with a nice lunch while the kids were all at school.  We drove into Germantown in downtown Nashville.  Oh.my.word.  I had the best lunch and I loved the almost everything about the restaurant Tim chose.  It was called The Mad Platter.  Sooo good.  It was also fun because the CMA’s were that night so we did a little star watching.  Guess who ate lunch right next to us?  It was actually kind of funny.  It was Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

Tim got the biggest kick out of this which then lead to me teasing him that he wrote into her fan club and invited her to his prom and he was still pining away for her.  But I digress…

After our ever-so-yummy lunch we decided to go to a new cupcake cafe in Hendersonville and get the kids and ourselves each a cupcake for dessert.  The shop is called Hello Cupcake which I think is the cutest name ever for a cupcake cafe.  Who could resist these?

So super yummy.  We ate them right after dinner and just before leaving for church.  After church we got all the kids in bed and then (get your mind out of the gutter, I’m not sharing that much with you) watched the season premiere of Top Chef.  Always a favorite we look forward to.  Just as I was getting read to head up for bed I rounded the corner and found my groom trying to put something on his head.  It was then I realized exactly what I had gotten myself into for the rest of my life.
