3 Years Later . . .

On May 19th, William and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. We still celebrated that day even though it was on a Wednesday. I got William Final Fantasy 13 and he surprised me and got me the professional belgian waffle maker!! I have been wanting this for awhile (I'm kind of a snob when it comes to waffles and the industrial size ones really do have the best taste and texture) and so he bought it for me :-)

I highly recommend it- we have already made waffles 3 times. Truly a great surprise :-) That night we went out to Half Moon Bay and had dinner at Navio, the restaurant at the Ritz Carlton Half-Moon Bay. I highly recommend this restaurant- the view is unbeatable and the food is divine. It was raining the night that we went but it had pretty much cleared by the time we were seated. We were able to watch the sun slip away over the water, for which this photo does not capture its beauty

For an appetizer, we each had one of the most succulent sea scallops that I have ever had- it had a perfectly seared top along with the most perfect texture. I then had the most tender beef short rib that has been cooked for 48 hours and had the most flavorful jus covering it while William had the pork chop, which was also good. For dessert, we got the molten chocolate cake which was SUPER rich on its own but was perfect with a bite of fresh strawberry and whipped cream. We also got the blackberry crumble with sour cream ice cream. I was somewhat skeptical of the sour cream ice cream but it actually made for the perfect complement with the sweetness of the blackberries and was not too tart, but just had a slight tang to it.

These past 3 years have truly been the best years of my life and I am more in love with William than I was 3 years ago. I can't wait to see what other adventures we will have in the upcoming year.

Cheryl, I am so glad you are alive and well. I have been saying to myself. I need to email Cheryl, but of course I haven't :) It sounds like you have been super busy. Hopefully I will see you sometime soon!

Congrats on the anniversary! I went camnping with my family at Half Moon Bay when I was 7 years old. I still remember it as one of my favorite vacations.
