A decadent decade

It's been two college degrees, one condo, one wedding, one baby and one decade later since Brent and I went on our first date.

I convinced Brent that we needed to celebrate, especially since we still hadn't gone out to celebrate our third wedding anniversary last month.

Surprisingly, it was the first time that Brent and I had been out solo -- without Em or any other adults -- since she arrived nearly 8 months ago! We had a lovely dinner at Grace after taking a rare family photo.

And we didn't need to exchange any gifts to celebrate - we gave ourselves the best gift eight months ago.
