Yesterday was our third anniversary. I just can't believe that - it seems like we were having premarital jitters just yesterday, and here we are, old married fogies.

And I absolutely love it.

It's been another super fantastic year. This one was especially big because we went to Europe together and had a blast. Travel really defined our third year together. Football games, weddings, New Orleans, boating, wild and crazy maize mazes, you name it, we did it all and had a beautiful time together.

We haven't seen each other much during the beginning of 2010. In the early months I was tearing it up with my business and doing tax season and enjoyed every minute of it. A week after that wound to an end, Mike was put on the midnight shift at work. But it's making us appreciate the time we have together. And we're really looking forward to a full week or two on the coast to relax, rest, rejuvenate, and reconnect.

It just so happened that last night was the one night of the week that Mike has off, and we were both in the mood for a good steak. So we went to Shapley's and had the best meal either of us had eaten in a while. The steak was like butter, the roasted asparagus melted in your mouth, and as I told the waiter it was our anniversary, he threw in a couple of glasses of champagne at the end of the meal for a toast. It was lovely. We came home to have a dessert of our two wedding cakes from That Special Touch. It's a tradition of mine to order a small Bailey's Irish Creme and a small raspberry chocolate ganache cake every year, but this year they messed up the order and sent me home with a whopping pair of cakes that would feed at least 50 people!

If you're in the area and in the mood for either, please drop by. I'm making myself sick.

I thought I'd include our song in this post. Mike actually picked it out. We tell everybody that it's Pass the Courvoisier, but this one really makes my heart sing.

Here's to more and more and more.
