Celebrating 23 Years

Our 23rd wedding anniversary is fast approaching and because we both work Tuesday (2/14), we celebrated our anniversary today instead. Nothing too high maintenance or expensive, we just spent the day together and took in some of our favorite spots around town. We had a great time and just enjoyed one another's company. These kinds of days are the ones I live for, when we get to just enjoy our lives and not worry about things like bills, work, and school. 

We started the day with breakfast at our favorite local spot, a pancake place called Stacked. After that we got around and headed out to Gossners to get cheese curds, went to Bluebird Chocolate for valentine's day sweets (chocolate covered gummy bears and macarons), to Caffe Ibis for coffee, went into a cute little soap shop called The Spirit Goat, and then went to one of my favorite places in town, Earthly Awakenings, a neat little shop that sells stones and incense. 

In the middle there we enjoyed lunch at Texas Roadhouse, went to the game shop, and took a little shopping trip to the European Food Club, a local store that sells all imported foods from across Europe. We spent too much money on fun, but it's been a long time since we could splurge so we did it without regrets. I couldn't imagine a better day... okay, actually, maybe if it had been warmer, but this is kind of what we deserve for getting married in February!
