My Thursday Treasure is my Jimmy! Today is our 43rd anniversary. I just don't know where all the years have done...43!
Jimmy had to watch Otto today, so we decided to go out for dinner close to home. We are very lucky to have McMenamin's Edgefield about 5 minutes from home.
The hotel is lovely and it's a very fun place to visit. The grounds are lovely with lots of flowers.
Grapes are growing in the field as you drive in. So fun!
We like to park in the back and this is the path up to the restaurant. It was quite hot today.
My Jimmy and his chicken wings!
It was the great beet salad that was my delight! It is my favorite salad. It isn't alway on the menu. I especially liked the golden beets that were used in this one tonight.
Jimmy always brings me roses for our anniversary! This dozen is just such a pretty color.
Next week we are going away for a few days. Gina is coming down from Seattle to watch Otto on our regular babysitting days as our gift. Angie gave us a cute summer pail filled with goodies and a CD for the trip....James Taylor and Carol King!
As we enjoyed our dinner, we were thinking over our 43 years of marriage. We really haven't had very much time just for Jim and Linda since Jim retired. We have loved being with Otto, but as we realize we are aging and having some health issues, we need to enjoy the next few years. We would like to do some more traveling and just have some more time to be together. I do hope that will happen...it's time.
