Mal and I celebrated 12 years of marriage yesterday. It was our 12th anniversary on July 12th aka our golden anniversary, right? 🙂 It was a fairly low-key celebration, but still really nice. Plus, now we can add “celebrate an anniversary during a pandemic” to our relationship! Mal and Quinn slept in super late, but I was up and at ’em making a special breakfast. We had croissants (from Trader Joe’s), bacon (obviously, Niman Ranch),…

Last week, Mal and I had the opportunity to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary at Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and it was a pretty darn incredible experience! 🙂 The nice people at Mirbeau offered me a complimentary spa treatment and lunch in exchange for a blog post, and I was more than willing to participate in the partnership. The timing worked well with our anniversary, so I invited Mal along for…

Today is quite the special day. Ten years ago, I married my best friend. And it’s safe to say that I am damn lucky! Mal is truly the greatest partner, and there’s no other wonderful (and kind of weird) person I’d rather spend my life with. We recently got to celebrate this milestone when we were in Oregon last week. We took advantage of our very kind family, who watched Quinn overnight, and took a…

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my better half!! Tomorrow, July 12th, marks NINE years of marriage – and Mal and I haven’t killed each other yet! Kidding, kidding! Mal and I actually get along really well and, as cheesy as it may sound, we are truly the best of friends. We share the same vision and goals for our life together, and we have the same outlook and views with regard to a lot of things. We’re also both Geminis, so we…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday! Just wanted to check-in and say ‘hello’ since I haven’t blogged since Wednesday. Holy cow. I’m pretty sure that’s the longest CNC has gone without a new post. I took a few days off to relax and unwind with my family during the Thanksgiving holiday, and, man, it was much-needed and so, so, so nice. Anyway, I just wanted to share what we’ve been up to since last Thursday! Thanksgiving partner…

Mal and I celebrated 8 years of marriage today! With all of our recent celebrations and travel, we decided to keep things simple this year. We went out to lunch at East Bay Grille, bought each other cards, and it ended up being the perfect anniversary celebration! Lunch started with drinks! And then cards. Mal gave me the sweetest card ever. It’s definitely a keeper! We talked about getting each other traditional anniversary gifts like last…

Hi, guys! So, Mal and I sort of celebrated 7 years of marriage yesterday. We didn’t have big plans because we just got back from Oregon and we have another vacation coming up in August, so we decided to keep things low-key this year. We did, however, agree to buy each other “traditional” wedding gifts just for the fun of it. Seven years is copper, so we planned to get each other something made from it. It was…

Mal and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary over the weekend, so I thought it would be nice to highlight some of the reasons (6 reasons for 6 years) why I think we are the perfect match. We are equally laid-back and neurotic The fact that Mal and I are equality laid-back and neurotic makes our relationship work. We both have things that we are “particular” about, but the other person seems to balance and mellow us out. For example,…

Six years ago today, I married my best friend, who also just happens to be a handsome devil. Lucky me! To celebrate our anniversary, Mal and I got all dressed up this afternoon, left Q with his Mimi and Papi, and went out to lunch together. Last week, the nice folks from Caffe Tosca invited me to lunch, so I took them up on their offer. A leisurely lunch on a beautiful day was a great way to celebrate six years…
