On May 1st, E and I took a trip a suprise 9th anniversary trip to Tiburon. It was such a sweet surprise from my husband, who usually leaves plans to me. We were engaged in Tiburon, which is a small town on the water, just over the golden gate from San Francisco. We got married in Maui, HI exactly one year later (May, 1, 2000). So 'May Day' is kind of a double anniversary for us. This one marked 10 years since we were engaged.
I knew something was up. I knew E had planned something. I told him just a date night for dinner would be enough. I figured we'd celebrate on Saturday, May 2. He did a great job of keeping the surprise until Thursday night, when, while watching TV, he let it slip, '..tomorrow, when I have a sub...' -- I called him on it and he blushed. He was taking the day off and we were beginning our celebration the next day!
When we woke up in the morning, he handed me a note that shared where we were going.....back to where it all started!
As you can see, it unfortunately stormed the whole time, which was a bit of a disappointment. Tiburon is known for a restaurant on the water called Sam's, that features a big sun deck, where visitors and locals dine and drink beer and look out over the water. We were really looking forward to that. Our hotel, The Water's Edge, was even right next door!
Instead, we dined at a few other yummy restaurants, wine tasted, saw a movie, drove to Sausolito and hit a street festival, and just generally enjoyed together time.
It was decadent! We are already in saving and planning mode for #10.....possibly a trip back to HI, or a 5 day trip to Disneyland, with a stay at the Grand Californian. It will be a family aniversary trip, with our sweet Miss P in tow.
More catch up coming soon...
