First Day of My Decade


My friend keeps telling me this will be my decade and I have this funny feeling it will be. Mike and I kept it low key last night. Went to my favorite restaurant which also happens to be across the street.
 We each had the grilled lamb with creamy polenta, caramelized turnips and sauteed greens, an amazing cheese platter and a pear tart with cinnamon ice cream for dessert. Then we popped over to the Thistle Hill Tavern, Mike's old restaurant for a drink where it was on the house. (Love those guys!) Then Mike took me to our garage where he had been hiding my gift. On Saturday he gave me my "main gift" which is the awesome digital camera I have been using to take all these pics! But this gift made my heart swoon! Vintage Corona Typewriter in working condition with a fresh ribbon. Love it. Thanks, handsome!
As for my gift to Mike, I went with a sensory gift - taste & sound. Cookies from Milk & Cookies, fresh mozzarella with wild boar salami from Murray's Cheese, a nice whiskey for those special occasions, and tickets to see his favorite comedian, Louis C. K. But the card is what it's really all about, right?
