Over the past week, I collected this set of doors which led us to culinary delights. 🙂
My husband and I celebrated an anniversary this week, and I took an idea from my Maine blogging friend, Laurie, Hinterlands. We celebrated all week instead of one day, and I’d highly recommend it. 🙂
- Saturday – really good pulled pork BBQ sandwiches at the Smokeshack chuckwagon in Lee.
- Sunday – nice Irish Eggs Benedict brunch at 7th Settlement Brewery, Dover. We didn’t, however, like their choices of beer on tap – first time for everything.
- Monday – great beer, Selkie and Portsmouth Pale Ale, and delicious Mussels and Fried Fish Sandwich at Portsmouth Brewery plus a stop at La Maison Navarre, a French pastry shop in Portsmouth.
- Tuesday – wonderful Shepherd’s Pie and New England Pasty with Smithwick’s Red Ale and Fat Tire Belgium style white, at British Beer Company in Portsmouth.
- Wednesday – lunch at Smuttynose Brewery’s restaurant, Hayseed, in Hampton where we had Fish and Frites and Schnitzel along with Pinniped Special and Vienna Lager.
I’d tell you how many years we’ve been married, but then I’d have to lie and tell you I got married right out of 8th grade. 🙂
Instead I’ll tell you that we’ve lived in three states and 13 different houses, and like every other couple, we’ve had our share of ups and downs.
One of the early memories we still chuckle about is when we first got married, and we saved for months to accumulate enough money to pay cash for a washer and dryer. That was the best shopping trip ever.
For every up there is a down, and one of the worst memories is the day we closed on the sale of a large home and property to go home and have a sale of furniture only to find out hours later that the buyers didn’t show up to close, and we had to put the property back on the market minus quite a bit of furniture.
Today, we try to enjoy each day for the gift it is while being thankful for yesterday and looking forward to tomorrow.
Life is short, take Laurie’s advice and really celebrate whatever is on your calendar. 🙂
