Ninth Anniversary

We had given some consideration to doing a little weekend getaway to Chateau Elan or Asheville to celebrate our anniversary this year, but we MOVED. So our plans changed! Instead, Thomas took a 1/2 day off work and we got to spend some time together during the afternoon and then got a babysitter so we could go out on a date night.

Beautiful roses Thomas brought home
for me!

We went to the pool for a hot minute - no one was there (it was raining) - so we had the place to ourselves to just chat. We didn't end up getting in the water because it was too cold from all the rain we've been getting! We just sat along the edge, put our feet in and talked.

We picked up the boys from school to get them ready for their sitter to come!

First stop: Hall's Chophouse for a quick drink before dinner.

Then we had dinner reservations at Jianna and had a delicious meal there!

Traditional 9th anniversary gifts are pottery and willow. Hmm...that's a tough one. Thomas was great and got me a new wicker basket (wicker/willow - very similar!). I was so impressed that he looked it up and then made a thoughtful effort to follow tradition! I skirted traditional all together and got Thomas a guided waterfall kayak tour on Lake Jocassee. We'll just have to pick a day and make a reservation. I'm excited about it! 

Next year is the big TEN! The years are flying by and I could not have found a better partner than Thomas. He's a fantastic husband and we work well together! Here's to many, many more years!
