Today Dave and I are celebrating our 6th anniversary (12 total years together). What is extra special about today’s photo of the day is that I have photos of this day for the last six years that all tell a mini story about us. Here goes…
May 28, 2012:
Today we capped off our anniversary celebration with dinner at our favorite sushi restaurant, Fujiyama. We polished off six rolls, an accomplishment even for our big stomachs.
May 28, 2011: St. Louis and Sweetie Pie’s
We hit up this restaurant on our 5th anniversary, even before it was a show on OWN. Dave and I have started a new tradition that when we travel we never eat at chain restaurants, we always find locally owned fare, delicious. We also hit up a Budweiser Brewery tour to appropriately toast 5 years together.
May 28, 2010: Sushi at Fujiyama
This year we were training for the Ironman so we took the day off work and did a four hour bike, then got a massage, and then ate way too much sushi (this is a theme for us). Just to give you a sense of how much Dave loves me, he did an Ironman with me and he hates running and doesn’t care for biking. Now that is love.
May 28, 2009: Picnic at Doctor’s Park
This year we had a picnic at a local park and then spent at least an hour taking goofy pictures of each other. Did you know that if you are swinging on the swings… and bend your head back… and kick your legs up just right… and stick your tongue out you can take a picture that looks like you are licking your butt without actually doing it? Yes, these are the simple things that Dave and I think are hilarious.
May 28, 2008: Dinner at Eddie Martini’s
We went for massages this year too. You know you need a massage when the massage therapist says to your husband, “I’ve never felt knots quite like that before.” Then we went out for a steak dinner.
May 28, 2007: Paris
For our first anniversary we went to Paris to watch the French Open. Overall this was an unbelievable way to spend a first anniversary. What we didn’t do was plan this vacation very well. We planned a trip to Paris to go to the French Open because on our honeymoon we watched tennis every afternoon when it was too hot to be outside. What we didn’t do is purchase tickets to the French Open in advance, NOT smart. We showed up at the gate on May 28th, two days before our vacation ended, expecting to get in and were completely rejected. The next day we spent 6 hours, starting at 4 a.m., waiting in a line outside of Rolland Garros to buy tickets when it was 40 degrees and raining. I came back from Paris horribly ill but at least we got to see some tennis.
May 28, 2006: Best Day Ever!
I married my best friend, it was perfect.
Happy Anniversary Dave!
