Yes, 6 years ago we tied the knot in Springfield, VA after several years of dating and a 13 month engagement. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday and sometimes it feels like we've known each other forever. Jonathan is still my best friend and we continue to love how are are growing together more and more each year.
We got all dolled up for our anniversary because we never have a chance to look really nice now. I put on such a 'fancy' dress that our server though we were going to a wedding or something really big deal. Nope, just out for a night on the town. We went to Empire on Granby, which is a tapas place that has a huge list of martinis and we enjoyed a "loudmouth martini" and a "french martini". I am not one for taking pictures of food or drink but I have all these friends who blog about food and I've been inspired. Plus we never get frou-frou drinks like that and had to commemorate the experience. We walked next door to Snappers, our favorite local fish place where Jonathan had fried oysters with grilled cajun tomatoes and I had crab cakes with hushpuppies. It was so nice to enjoy each other's company over a nice dinner, not having to worry about Jackson grabbing all of the food and utensils.
