Our Anniversary

January 27th was our five-year anniversary. Kerry is such a warm, wonderful person. We went to one of our favorite restaurants on Friday night, Ruth's Chris Steak House. We'd been to the one in Jacksonville, Florida after our golfing trip to Charleston, S.C. And I've been to one in Houston many years ago. But now there is a new one in nearby Roseville. We have our standard order. We each get a filet mignon medium rare. I get the petite one, which I never finish and he gets the regular size, which he never finishes. Then we share a one pound potato with all the trimmings. Last, but not least, we have the creamed spinach. It is to die for. They will not give out the recipe. But suffice to say, it barely counts as a vegetable. To honor our anniversary the restaurant treated us to dessert, creme brulee and bread pudding with a whisky sauce. Then Kerry treated me to another wonderful piece of jewelry. It's a white gold band with five sapphires (for five years) and six diamonds. The stones are in a channel setting. It's beautiful. The waitress gave Kerry a big thumbs up for knowing how important jewelry is to women. Another wonderful year together has started.
