So last weekend the Z-man and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Can you believe it?! 5 crazy yet amazingly glorious years with my favorite human on earth. I am one lucky duck!

Our dream for our 5th anniversary was always to go to London. Clearly, that didn't happen this year LOL. In fact, we didn't even leave home! We have a few upcoming trips in the next few months so we need to keep things a little low key this year. That however did not stop Zach from making the weekend special and surprising me with a great anniversary weekend.
Our actual anniversary was Saturday, but due to Zach's strict singing regimen (he doesn't eat certain foods a few days before singing or spend much time outside (allergies)), we couldn't really celebrate the way we wanted to - WITH FOOD. haha I has assumed we would just go out for a nice dinner Sunday night, but when I got home on Friday Zach informed me we had reservations at Bacchanalia. BACCHANALIA people. I never even mention going here because it's ridiculously expensive and consistently ranked one of the best (if not the best) restaurant in the city. It has always been on my bucket list to experience, but I had not even considered we would be going there! We got dressed up and drove back into the city for a really fun night. I know some people might not get behind fine dining or appreciate exemplary food, but here's why I like it - I really enjoy fine dining not only because it is a great experience and tastes amazing, but because it slows me down. It heightens all my senses and causes me to stop and really focus on what I am seeing/tasting/smelling and more importantly, who I am with.
Zach and I had a wonderful time and I thoroughly enjoyed my extravagant surprise. :)
On Saturday, after a few small gift exchanges, we decided to drive up to Athens (a city I've only visited once, late at night, for a quick bite) to check out and spend the day somewhere off our beaten path.
