Happy 5 Years, babe!

We’re celebrating our FIFTH wedding anniversary and I don’t have an abundance of words to write except these past five years have been overflowing with memories and I look forward to the next ninety (five) years!

5 year anniversary

Until next time — Cindy

Love-ly Day

Forest and I had a very low-key Valentine’s Day this year.  A couple years ago we made reservations for dinner at a fancy restaurant.  We had a great night but it just wasn’t us.  So this year I suggested we order Chili’s to-go and enjoy our Valentine’s Day evening at home.

We started the day with DONUTS!  I’ve been wanting donuts for so long and Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally indulge.

My mouth is seriously watering just looking at that picture. Mmm….

We watched Boy Meets World all morning. Enjoyed leftover pizza for lunch.  We ran out to Kohl’s (I had a 30% off coupon burning a hole in my pocket) in the afternoon and to Pep Boys for floor mats in the Traverse.  We got home and did some more lounging around.  When we finally started thinking about food, we ordered Chili’s online and I went to pick it up while Forest set up the office/den for dinner.  The fireplace was going, the Pandora station was spot-on, and we had sparkling cider to enjoy with our meal.

After dinner we played a couple games (which I’m happy to gloat that I won every game except 1. woot!) and I laughed until I cried.  A few times.  It was the most perfect day spent with my love.  Why can’t every Saturday be like that, right?!

I hope everyone had a special day lovin’ on their family and friends, too!

Until next time — Cindy
