Walking With A Friend

This morning I met my friend Anita at her house and we walked around her neighborhood. She’s a friend from work..when I did work that is. We had a great conversation along our walk. We walked 3.05 miles. She lives in a hilly neighborhood so my calves were burning by the end. She walks really fast too! It was a good walk!

4th of July

Last night we went to dinner at the Dails’ house. They made a traditional 4th of July meal of hamburgers and hotdogs. Of course I had one of each. We had a great time enjoying wine and catching up with everyone. It was raining when the fireworks started so only the young ones went to watch and the rest of us stayed inside and had another glass of wine. It was a fun evening!

Two Year Anniversary

Today is our 2 year anniversary! We got married two years ago today. Here we are pictured with our best friends, the Dails on our wedding day. They were our witnesses and they put on our reception. We still get together and enjoy dinners and wine together. Happy Anniversary to us!


We have finally decided to get married. On Friday evening I asked my partner if he would marry me and he said yes. We have decided on a February wedding since that will be our 10th anniversary.

Today we joined some good friends of ours at a winery to enjoy wine tasting, lunch, and to celebrate our engagement. They brought a cake to help celebrate. Here’s a picture of us holding the cake of course. It was delicious!


50th Birthday

Friday evening I had a little birthday happy hour with some friends from work. It was a great way to celebrate my 50th birthday. I had a great time and probably had a bit too much wine by the end of the evening. Here are some photos from the evening. Thank you, Warren!


50th Birthday

Today is Warren’s 50th birthday! Happy Birthday! Last night we went to a local restaurant with some close friends and had a wonderful dinner with some wonderful wines. After dinner we went back to Warren’s house to enjoy some cake and ice cream. Warren opened his gifts as well. We had a great time catching up with our friends and celebrating Warren’s 50th birthday. I’m now younger than he is…until the end of May. Here are some pictures from the evening.

Halloween Party

Last night we had our 2nd annual Halloween party. We had about 15 friends over for an evening of food, wines, and friends. I made cupcakes and cut the pumpkin. My partner pretty much did everything else. Everyone had a great time and we selected the Salam witch as the costume winner and the genie from Aladdin was the runner up. Here are some pictures from the evening. As you can see in the last photo, I was dressed in a toga and my partner was a Tudor prince.

A Wedding

On Saturday we went to a wedding. Our friend’s Dorothy and Laura got married. It was a beautiful affair. We had a great time. I would have more pictures but they requested we not take pictures during the ceremony. And the pictures I did take were with my iPhone. I didn’t have my big camera with me. Below is one of the beautiful table setting and of when Dorothy and Laura were cutting the cake. During dinner I sat next to the minister. I thought that was funny since I’m an atheist. She didn’t mind at all. Turns out the lady sitting on the other side of the minister was an atheist too….but she called herself a humanist. I think it’s the same thing. Anyway, we had fun dancing and chatting with other guests and celebrating with Dorothy and Laura.
