NC Trip Day Five – The Reason We’re Here

Today, the 28th (although, it’s currently past midnight, so technically yesterday) is the precise reason we’re up here in North Carolina. Today celebrated Sarah and my third wedding anniversary.

I know, in retrospect, three years doesn’t seem like a big deal, but to us, while it seems like just yesterday we started on this journey, it also feels like we’ve always been together.

I’m going to skip all the mushy stuff, here. I could go on and on about feelings and whatever, but you’re here to read about our trip.

Today had one goal: steak dinner.

We had made reservations at the Sunset Terrace Restaurant at the Grove Park Inn over in Asheville. Quite literally an outdoor dining experience specifically set up to watch the sun go down behind the mountains as you’re eating.

We both had amazing steaks, I had a couple of the local brews, and we had a wonderful dessert (of course). The only thing that could compare to our meal was the stunning views from my seat. Of course the view of the sunset, but also my beautiful wife who never ceases to take my breath away.

After our drive home, we popped open a bottle of the same wine that we had the night of our wedding, put on some Top Gear, and talked about the future, which I can’t wait for.

In other news, I’m very proud to see that David and the gang all got to record an episode of the Attack of the Beards Cast in my absence! I think you probably should listen to it, which you can over at http://attackofthebeards.com

PS: I’m sorry, but I’m not sorry for all the iPhone photos. If this was any event but my anniversary, I would have shot it with my real camera, but I didn’t want to divert my attention too much from whom really matters, so I only took a couple shots with my iPhone. Maybe next time.
