To celebrate 2 years we headed out to Atlanta for the weekend.
On Thursday evening we ate at the Woodfire Grill which is owned by Top Chef finalist Kevin Gillespie. We actually dined there two nights before our wedding as well. It was a very tasty meal & a great way to mark our anniversary!

We spent Thursday night at the W in Midtown and woke up the next morning for breakfast at The Flying Biscuit (I miss that place so much. Who wants to open one in Bham with me?).
After a visit to the High museum, we headed 45 minutes out of town to Chateau Elon.

We rested, tasted their wines and ate another delicious meal. On Saturday we headed back into town for a trip to Ikea and Trader Joe's.

This picture doesn't really do justice to the amount of furniture and food we fit into the ole Passat Wagon...but it did the trick! Atlanta will always be one of our favorite cities to visit together. Happy 2 years!

2 Years

Today marks 2 years since our wedding. It's crazy to think how quickly time flies! We spent the weekend in Atlanta (more on that later) and celebrated with lots of good food and some restful time away from the norm. It was wonderful.

We spent some time reflecting on what has happened over the past two years:
-we both have different jobs
-we bought a house!
-we've planted and had 2 successful gardens
-we lived through our first serious illness with a parent
-we rebuilt a church
-we've traveled to Japan and South Africa

So....Happy Anniversary Matt!
I can't wait to see what year 3 brings our way!
