Celebrating Our Anniversary

What does a nice hotel room, beautiful poppies, and 2 people in love indicate? An anniversary celebration! We celebrated 10 years this year! I can't believe how fast time flies! Although we plan to do a bigger celebration later this year, we did take some time on the 11th to celebrate! Since we were already in Cape Town and had a babysitter, we left the kids and spent some time together!

Being in the heart of South Africa's wine lands, we decided to visit a winery. We found Lourensford Winery, a beautiful place tucked away at the bottom of the mountains in Somerset West. Simply breathtaking!

a taste

We sampled cheeses and took home some chocolates. We also participated in a wine tasting. Five wines and their signature honey liqueur. All of them were simply fantastic. You know how they say to pick a new scented lotion or fragrance to mark a significant event like getting married? Well, our 10 year anniversary will be marked by amazing Lourensford wine!

Jeremy surprised me in the morning by telling me to pack an overnight bag! I thought we were just going out for the day. I had no idea he planned a night away! One of Jeremy's favorite magazines is Elle Decor. They recently featured the Grand Daddy Hotel in downtown Cape Town, the only hotel in the world with airstreams on their rooftop! These airstreams were decorated by local designers and now have their own little park in the city!

After a movie, we ended up at The Jewel Of India, a fabulous Indian restuarant at The Waterfront. The lamb bhuna was a hit! It was not intentional but very cool that we ended up at an Indian restuarant seeing as our relationship started on a plane trip to India!
