Celebrating Us

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner together to celebrate our 4 years of marital bliss.  :)  We both had to work (I was running Camp Invention at our school last week).  So we headed out to Jean Ferris Winery around 6:30 for some great food, wine and a sunset.  I love this place so much.  It feels like your sitting in a place outside of Lexington as you look out onto their beautiful vineyards, watch their chickens run into their coop, and enjoy the amazing landscape and setting they have created.  Each time we have been there the service has been incredible, and I love that they serve a lot of KY Proud items, including the prosciutto we devoured as an appetizer and bourbon soaked cherries with dessert.  Mmmmmm.  We had a bottle of Syrah (our favorite after our CA trip and tastings), which was incredibly delicious yet subtle compared to most Syrah's.  Great conversation and smiles carried us into the night and we both felt so blessed to share the evening together. 
Small things that brightened our day:  
  • a lovely card from Barry's parents
  • a sweetly sung rendition of "Happy Anniversary to You", performed by my parents
  • cheerful texts and messages from friends
  • We felt celebrated and we felt loved.  Thank you!
A bright spot in my night....B picked up that Michael Kors watch I had posted in my wish list a few weeks ago.  Score!  :)  


  1. Sara you all will have to come in town sometime and we can all go. Maybe after a day at Keenland, or maybe for no reason at all? :)
