Cheers to Six Years

Cooking

Matt and I had a little something to celebrate yesterday – six years together! But due to scheduling, we didn’t even see each other yesterday. We actually plan to celebrate this weekend, but decided a little weekday wine was in order. Enter the Funf.

I’ve had this bottle of wine for 3+ years. Oops. When I was at Davidson, Matt and I liked to walk across the street to the wine bar and order this riesling. This is when my love for German riesling was born. Once I graduated, we bought a bottle to take with us to remember our little wine bar. It was a big deal back then because this was a $20 bottle. Even now, we only buy bottles in the $7 to $10 range at Trader Joes! Anyway, I think we let it age waayyy past it’s prime. It tasted more like apple juice up front, but was still really good on the finish.

Dinner was [boxed] parmesan risotto with spinach and shrimp. I splurged and spent $5 on wild Georgia shrimp:)

I’m suddenly feeling really sick with a massive headache and toothache and weird sinus pain. It literally came out of nowhere just ten minutes ago, so I’ve got to go find the heating pad to get some relief. Happy almost Friday and happy anniversary to my love.

    Happy anniversary! Wow, six years. I’ve never committed to anything that long, not even university! Hope you guys enjoy your celebrations this weekend.

    I wanted to ask your advice – a friend and I are planning a bit of a road trip around the southern US next year, have you got any particular recommendations? My only two places I must go are New Orleans and Orlando (I really want to go to Harry Potter World!!).

      haha – thanks!

      I would recommend Charleston or Savannah and maybe somewhere in the mountains – Asheville, NC is a cute place to visit. Are you headed west of New Orleans? – would definately recommend Austin, TX or AZ.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Matt’s an excellent catch. You are too, of course, but not sure my opinion counts in that regard since I am your mother…

    Happy Anniversary!

    Have you seen these photos? http://joshuadrakephotography.wordpress.com/
    I read this photographer’s blog (he shot my friends wedding a few months ago and I was hooked) and I was surprised to see a familiar face! I found your blog via kath’s of course.

    Shrimp and wine are huge triggers of migraine. You may wish to explore whether they are triggers for you.

      Yeah, I know I’m doing something wrong, just need help figuring out what it is 🙁
