Today is our wedding anniversary. Many ups and downs throughout the years. We have learned to enjoy the good times, and use the not-so-good times as learning experiences (thank goodness those occasions are far and few in between).

With so much going on last weekend and this weekend with holiday family gatherings, we decided to celebrate last night with a romantic dinner at LaBinnah Bistro. An excellent choice!

We started with the Santa Fe - a spinach artichoke dip made with mozzarella, asiago, parmesan, jarlsburg cheeses, served with french bread. Christina had the Queen Victoria - a good sized pork chop served with fresh blueberries and a cranberry chipotle. I had the Creole Tilapia. We shared a Godiva (chocolate cake) for dessert.

This was an amazing meal in an intimate setting. I highly reccomend visiting LaBinnah Bistro at least once. You will not be disappointed.

Since I had to be at work early this morning, we decided not to make it a late night. So we picked up a bottle of wine, and headed home to enjoy a Netflix movie.

Here's to another 18 years!
