Happy Anniversary to Us!

We celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary on December 11th! Woo Hoo! The weekend before, Raul planned a romantic getaway to Catalina Island.

We flew there by helicopter - a lifelong dream of Raul's and a great fear of mine. I had anticipated that it would feel as if I were hovering above the ocean in a tin can. I was pleasantly surprised as the helicopter was very un-tin-can-like.

Hello. It is our anniversary and we are in a helicopter. Above the ocean.

We stayed in Avalon. It was a super small town - very much a cruise boat sort of town, but it was such a nice get away from the city.

We stayed in a great place, right across the street from the harbor. We ate breakfast on our balcony in the morning.

The final word is that Raul did such an excellent job planning (and not over-planning as is my compulsion) this vacation that he has been elected to the high position of "Vacation Planner for All-Time." Way to go Raul!!

I will end this post with words from one of my patients, "If you want to get it right, never eat peanut butter in front of a god." If this statement makes sense to you, I would advise presenting to your nearest psychiatrist for evaluation.

Perhaps it is too messy of a food to eat in front of a god?

I dunno.

Either way, happy anniversary!!!

I'm happy that you had such a nice anniversary celebraation. You two deserved it. May you have many, many more.

Have you ever seen a dog eat peanut butter? Not a pleasant sight I don't think.

Much love to you both.
