The Best We've Got

This post should have gone up on the 2nd of August, but somehow, one by one, we each got sick starting the day my parents left and we're only just starting to get back on our feet again now.

Happy 4th anniversary, Andrew!

Us - the best we've got*

Thank you for facing all our life's challenges, unexpected and planned, with me. It's not always easy but I wouldn't have it any other way.

We usually celebrate our anniversaries and birthdays without much fanfare, but even so, we managed to fit in several low-key celebrations this year.

While my parents were still in town, they offered to watch the boys one night so we could celebrate our anniversary early. Andrew got us tickets to see Batman and booked us a table at Garuva.

Then, on our actual anniversary we took the boys out to Grill'd. It's not the fanciest joint but neither of us had to cook that night and that's good enough for us.

Finally, way back in February, I found out the QSO would be performing the score of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings. I have been dying to hear an orchestra play again and they had only 3 performances which happened to be on the weekend of our anniversary so I bought tickets right away. The best part of this whole deal was that they were playing the original score along with the film so we actually got to watch the entire movie while the orchestra and choirs performed (aka there was less of a chance of Andrew falling asleep).

It was so nice to do something special just for the two of us, by ourselves, again.
