A Perfect Anniversary!!

My sweet husband absolutely showered me with love in celebration of our first year of marriage!! This last year has been SO good! So much change, so much fun, and we can truly look back and delight in how the Lord has steered our hearts in molding our lives together.
First, Russell brought me flowers!! Pretty, bright yellow lillies, roses and gerber daisies!

Then, in celebration of our anniversary and the good news of our coming son :), he took me to Brio's for dinner! YUMMY!

We started with Brio's signature LOBSTER BISQUE as our appetizer...Delicious! So rich & so creamy!

My meal:
With Romano crusted tomatoes, citrus pesto,
asparagus and crispy shoestring potatoes

Russell's meal:
Two 4 oz. filets, served with Romano crusted
tomatoes and Hollandaise

My dessert: I wanted something CHOCOLATE! So, I had this...

Rich chocolate cake with warm center topped with
Vanilla Bean Gelato and chocolate syrup

Russell's dessert: He tried a variety of crème brûlées...CREME BRULEE DOLCHINO TRIO
A sampling of three different flavored housemade crème brûlées –
hazelnut, caramel and orange

With the fun news of expecting a BOY and all the pampering from my sweet hubby, I'd say I experienced a perfect day!

"Thank you, Russell!!! Happy Anniversary, and it's been a WONDERFUL first year of marriage! We've got another eventful year ahead of us, and I absolulutely look forward to spending the rest of my life with you!"
