Has it really been 4 years?!

Today is mine and Ryan’s fourth wedding anniversary and I just can’t believe it!

It seems like just yesterday my Mom and Dad were helping me pack up their car for the drive to Meredith, the site for our wedding. It was spitting rain and I was actually being very zen about the whole bad-weather-is-threatening-my-perfect-day thing. The days are a blur that fall between that drive and the day I walked up to my Daddy and then down the aisle holding his arm. The weather was wonderful–blue skies, bright shining sun and a beautiful lake as the backdrop.

I said to Ryan just the other day, “Can you believe it has been four years? We’ve accomplished a lot in four years: we’ve bought a house and cars, I got a new job and we both got a basenji.” Ryan laughed to himself and then when our eyes met, we knew we were thinking the same thing… Cali is the BEST thing that has happened to us.

Tonight I am going to get my hair cut and then Ryan is taking me to Fogo de Chao in Beverly Hills. It is a Brazilian steak house that we just love going to. It is all you can eat meat brought around by the waiters on skewers.

They shave off what you want and then the next guy comes until you flip the red side up on your personal coaster, which tells them to stop offering you meat! Crazy, right?!

Ryan will undoubtedly keep it on green most of the meal, but I will take breaks from the meat for the unbelievable salad bar. I can’t wait to savor a glass of pinot grigio and indulge in the tender meats, abundant veggies, grilled bananas and fried plantains. The desserts are also delicious and I do not know if we will have room, but how can we pass up crème brulé?

Tomorrow, we are going to take off of work early and treat ourselves to an afternoon at the spa, Burke Williams, which is a gift from my folks (thanks Mom & Dad!). I don’t know what I am looking forward to more: a delicious meal with my hubby or getting a full body massage and sweating away the week in the steam room? It’s a toss-up!
