To celebrate our wedding anniversary Nate and I met after work outside of the Plaza hotel. Nate was full of surprises! I had a good prediction of what we might be doing after he told me where to meet, but I didn't know everything that he had planned. He first handed me a darling bag with some goodies and a card in it, but told me it was for later. Then he escorted me down the street to a restaurant called Sarabeth's. We had a delicous 3 course meal accompanied by an unexpected dinner party. We ate tomato soup that was to die for. It was definitley my favorite part of the meal. Then, Nate had steak and I had chicken (of course), followed by a scrumptious dessert of creme brulee and cookies! By the time we ate dessert conversation had been struck up between us and the two tables next to us. (A mother and daughter from Argentina and an older couple visiting from Kentucky...pretty random group but we enjoyed ourselves!) We had a good time and left sufficiently stuffed! After dinner we crossed the street and he informed me that we would be taking a carriage ride through central park...so romantic! I have always wanted to do that so I was thrilled with his plans for us, and my prediction was correct. We had a cute driver (horse driver?) who had an Irish accent. We pulled out our bag of goodies and I read the card on the ride. We both quoted silly movies (The Flinstones and It Takes Two) that we love as we made another New York memory. The night was perfect! We were exhausted and ready to hit the sack the second we got home. It was a week night after all.
Nate is pretty wonderful! I had been spoiled just a few weeks before with flowers when I returned home from my trip to Missouri. I'm a lucky girl to have a boy like him! We are good for one another and couldn't live without each other. My mom sent a perfect card for us. It reads, " If you can love each other's quirks...you've got a marriage that works!" We are certainly quirky and growing in love each day!
