Hubby and I went on a date last night to celebrate our anniversary. We were a little late because the last two weeks have been so crazy. We went to Patti's which is a local restaurant that has awesome food and atmosphere. We actually did not have the greatest food though, which was quite shocking. Erik got the special of the day which was a seafood pasta salad that was a little odd. I got Texas steak which is my favorite thing on their menu and I had to send it back because someone dropped a salt shaker on it. My next steak was delicious though and it waits for me for supper today. Luckily we were so full from our appetizers and salad (they were delicious)that we did not care about our entree anyway.

After we ate and Erik packed our leftovers to the van, we walked their gardens-which are vast and beautiful. There are flowers and animals everywhere outside so it is very awesome. They have a gazebo in the middle all set up for a wedding, so we walked down the aisle and kissed. Then we went over to the tiny prayer chapel and prayed for our relationship. It really was quite awesome. My specific prayer for us is that we grow closer to each other as we grow closer to God. The closer to God part is just critical-sometimes He gets lost in our days and we don't want that. Anyway, it was a wonderful evening together and we desperately needed it. Home was good too. ( ;

so, was it that it was dented by the salt shaker or that it then had salt all over it?
