Today Lionel and I celebrated two years of marriage! I can't believe we have been married for two whole years...its seems like the time has passed so quickly! It still seems weird to me to say that I am married, especially since if you had asked me 6 years ago, I never expected to ever be married. But there you go...funny how life happens like that! But I'm thrilled to be married to my little Frenchie and I'm looking forward to many more years to come!
So, in honor of the occasion, Lionel and I went out to dinner to celebrate tonight. He took me to my favorite restaurant, A la Biche au Bois, and we enjoyed a wonderful meal of delicious French country cooking. But more about that in another post...
The only downside was that we are both sick (his fault as he got sick first and gave it to me) so we weren't able to completely enjoy our evening out and we couldn't completely taste our food...but it was still a nice night out!
We will also be celebrating in two weekends when we are treating ourselves to our traditional anniversary/Christmas trip. Every year around the time of our wedding anniversary (and incidentally the anniversary of when we met) and Christmas we take a weekend trip to visit a new city in Europe, but always one that is known for it's Christmas markets as well. We've already been to Strasbourg, Brussels and Prague for little Christmas/anniversary trips and this year we are planning to take the car and head to Trier, Germany to visit the oldest city in Germany and enjoy it's charming Christmas market. While there we are either gonna take a day trip and hit up Aachen, Germany (Aix-la-Chapelle) or Luxembourg City. We haven't decided yet, but we'll see!
All in all I'm pretty happy with this year's anniversary celebrations as last year (for our FIRST wedding anniversary) I got nothing...no restaurant, no trip (cause we were about to head to the US), nothing! This year is much better!
So, happy anniversary Lionel!
