six months

Friday was our sixth-month wedding anniversary. A small milestone, for sure, but a milestone nonetheless. I was pleasantly surprised when I came home from work to this:

Our little bistro table had been pulled into the middle of the living room (we don't have an eat-in kitchen or dining room, so the corner of our living room doubles as a dining "room"); the curtains were drawn to keep out the early evening sun and some of the cut glass votives from our wedding lit up the room with a warm glow. The save-the-date mix CD that we had put together for our guests was playing throughout the apartment as my wonderful husband finished up dinner.

Nick cooked up a yummy meal of some delicious melt-in-your-mouth pork, couscous, and broccoli. We're both following Weight Watchers, so he made sure to not mess up our points for the day :-)

Then came dessert: a Weight Watchers lemon cake (these things are my favorite!), topped off with one of the "love is sweet" cake flags from our wedding. He's very resourceful!

It was so sweet and adorable and thoughtful. I love little unexpected surprises, and I'm looking forward to many more milestones in our marriage!
