Today the Tall Man and I celebrate eight years of marriage. It has been an awesome journey for us. This last weekend was no exception. My amazing Tall Man planned a night out to remember. First he arranged for our little chicks to spend the night with their Grandma and Aunt. After our girls headed out on their own adventure we got ready and went down to one of the local lakes and snapped a few pictures.
The sun started to go down and we decided to get going on our date night. This wasn't any date night. My Tall Man planned EVERYTHING on his own. It was all a surprise to me! We walked around some of our favorite stores (The Apple Store, Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn.) After wiping the drool from our chins it was 7 o'clock and time for dinner. Not only did he make dinner reservations for us but he reserved The Lovers Lane at The Melting Pot. We had our own private room with a table for two covered in rose petals. There was champagne, wine, music and lots of fondue! Yum!
Here we are at out table. It was the coolest thing, on the wall behind us was a verse from Song of Solomon "I have found the one whom my soul loves." Perfect.Some how we managed to inhale our first and second courses (appetizer and salad) before taking any pictures of the food. This is our main course. There was duck, NY strip, Fillet Mignon, Ratatouille and goat cheese ravioli and shrimp. Oh and a bowl of potatoes, broccoli, carrots and mushrooms. And I can't forget the seven dipping sauces!
For dessert we ordered the Yin Yang fondue. A perfect mix of dark and white chocolate with strawberries, marshmallows, pound cake, brownies, bananas, rice krispie treats and cheese cake.
It was an amazing evening spent just me and my Tall Man. I appreciate and love him more than he'll ever know. I look forward to spending all eternity by his side. Happy anniversary Tall Man!
