Yesterday was our 4 year anniversary! I can't believe it has been that long! The 2 years Devin was on his mission were the longest of my life and now the time goes by too fast!
Devin was very cute. This is what he did: He has this collection of root beer bottles that I hate. They were in our kitchen on our "half wall" collecting dust and clashing with everything. So I have been after him lately to throw them out but he wants to keep them. When I woke up on our anniversary and went into the kitchen the bottles were gone! I was so excited! And the dishes were put away, but the bottles being gone was really enough to start my day off right:)
Then, for Christmas we were working on typing up his recipes and making a cookbook to give his family. I needed to go through and edit the recipes. I worked on it all day and my poor boys were practically neglected while I tried to get it finished. So I was feeling horrible about ignoring them and tired of doing the recipes and frustrated that it was taking so long. When all of a sudden, there was a knock on the front door. It was my in-laws. They were there to watch the boys so I could get ready and meet Devin for dinner. (I love being able to get ready without the boys interrupting me every 2 minutes so this was a treat.)
As I was getting ready Devin called and said he could come pick me up so we could drive together instead of meet there so I was excited about that. Though I didn't know where we were going yet...
When he got home, we said bye to the boys and followed Devin's clues to find the restaurant Baci. It's an Italian place I have been wanting to try. It was very nice and delicious! The only thing I didn't like was their house dressing. It had horseradish in it and I don't like that so they brought me their caesar dressing and it was yummy!
After our very nice dinner together, we drove home and put the boys to bed and had a nice evening at home. He was so thoughtful and we really had a fun time!
I am so blessed to have Devin as my eternal companion. He is absolutely amazing. We aren't perfect, but we are perfect for each other. I love him so much!
