sixteen years

Yesterday was our 16th wedding anniversary (January will be 20 years we've been together). We picked up our old selves and went out to dinner at our new favorite restaurant - a vegan sushi restaurant. I had read how fantastic their Downtown location is for years and they finally opened a spot on the West Side near us.  YIPPIE! 

They're having a Halloween tasting menu during October and so we decided to try it. Pumpkin Tempura, Pumpkin Soup, Pumpkin Sushi, and Pasta with Pumpkin Cream Sauce. Yummy!

When dessert time rolled around, all the servers came over to our table with our desserts and a candle had been placed on one of the plates to celebrate the occasion.  Then they told us to hold this heart-shaped wreath and that they were going to take our picture.  We weren't sure what was going on??

When we were done with our dessert, the servers came back with the card at the top of this post, with our photo in it. So much fun! Very sweet.

We're hoping for a quiet weekend. 

My husbands surgery is scheduled for 12:15 Monday afternoon and his surgery should be over about four hours later and then post op can take another few hours.  We need to arrive by 9:45 that morning, so it's going to be quite a long day.


  1. Happy anniversary! I think it's great you two went out to celebrate. I hope you two have a nice weekend and I'll be praying for you both on Monday! Twyla

  2. Happy Anniversary! Sushi of any kind sounds very delicious. :) Thinking of you and sending hugs and prayers. xo

  4. Congrats! What a cute photo. Sounds like a great place with a yummy menu.

    Of course I'll be thinking of both of you on Monday. Hope you have a friend to wait with you Sally, cause you're right,its going to be a long day. xo, Pam
