I have a new resolution: I want to bring our digital camera to every event in which we eat out - family gatherings, parties, romantic dinners, etc. That way we can document how we (try to) make the best/practical LC decisions in sometimes tricky situations.
This afternoon we'll be going out to run some errands. One of them is to re-size our wedding rings. This is a "good trouble" that often accompanies significant weight loss. At least we'll be doing this together. That way we'll both be without our wedding rings at the same time.
After our stop at the jewelers, we'll have an elegant dinner at a local restaurant. We often use dinner dates as a time to discuss our hopes and plans for the distant and near future. This is entirely by design. We came up with this strategy as an enjoyable way to slow down, for at least a few hours, and reflect on the things that often fall through the cracks during the busy week.
I'll post our photos from tonight's dinner later on. I hope the snap shots look as good as the menu sounds. :-)
PS - Mad had a spicy Bloody Mary and I had a glass of red wine (Santa Barbara Syrah) with dinner. Also, we didn't eat the dried cranberries or raisins on the first plate - or the sliced bread which we removed prior to snapping the photo.
