Our 3rd wedding anniversary was wonderful. Because Jesse didn't get home until late on the 8th, we moved most of our celebration over to the next night---but we did have a wonderful time together on the actual day!
While I prepared for my work day, Jesse prepared a scrumptious breakfast for us to celebrate our anniversary.
When I got home from work, I made a chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake (yes, I've promised the recipe...it just hasn't happened yet!) but it was still in the oven when Jesse got home (taking pictures of every step really lengthens the process!)
Thankfully, my sweet former co-teacher, Anne, had surprised me that morning with a gift bag she recommended I put in the fridge. When I peeked inside, I saw that she had bought a personal sized tiramisu and fruit tart for Jesse and me for our anniversary. How thoughtful is she?!? We enjoyed those very much on our anniversary night while we watched our wedding video.
On Thursday night, Jesse told me to put on a nice dress so that he could take me to a surprise dinner location. He took me to the Pomona Valley Mining Company, which has a special place in my heart because it was where my parents went on their first date nearly 30 years ago.
I was so surprised! Whenever we drive past it, I point it out to him and say, "Have I ever told you that that's where my parents went on their first date?"
I guess I've said it many times :-)
I was so touched that he thought to take me there. It was a very special evening!
We enjoyed a lovely night where we didn't have to worry about anything at all. We sat by the window overlooking the land below (it's high up on a hill) and enjoying the sights and just sharing peaceful time together. And amazing food. Lots of amazing food!
We ended the night with a chocolate souffle. Yum!
Thank You, God, for the 3 most amazing years of my life.
Thank You for providing us with an opportunity for special celebration even though we aren't taking a roadtrip together to celebrate this year. Thank You for bringing us together, and for giving us so much to look forward to in the years ahead!
