Holy crap that's a long time.
Well, technically it's not really our "dating" anniversary. We don't even remember when our first date was. But we do remember that on April 6, 2000, Bo handed me a note in the hall between classes. THE note - where he asked me to be his girlfriend. There was a box for "yes" and a box for "no". Obviously, I checked the "yes" box and I haven't had a dull moment in life ever since. And yes, we still have this note in a box somewhere with all of our other keepsake items.
So to celebrate this milestone, we went to Woodfire Grill, which has been on our "special occasion"/"must go here" restaurant list ever since we moved to Atlanta.
Of all the restaurants we've been to in this city, we ranked it second (to Restaurant Eugene, which I can't imagine anything ever beating that place). We got the 7-course tasting menu and wine pairing, and even as much as we hyped it up - it. was. awesome. Several people suggested the tasting menu, and it did not disappoint. It's really the best way to go if you've never been. Our courses included salmon, scallops, trout, pork loin and pork belly, quail, lamb, and strawberry ice cream with chocolate ganache. As a bonus, we also got a few special items from the chef in between (as if we needed anymore...): amuse-bouche cheese and cracker bite, a shooter of gazpacho and chiles, and a nutella milk shake scoop with mini french fries. We were there for about three hours and had a really great time. And then we slipped into a food-and-wine-induced coma the second we hit the couch back at home.
Happy 12 years, my love. Here's to the next dozen..!
