A Bona Vita Anniversary

We haven’t eaten out in weeks (very unusual, but becoming more normal for us), so when Sterling came home the evening of our anniversary and half-jokingly suggested we go out to dinner, I thought about it for a couple of seconds, decided it was a good idea, and knew right where to go!

Since Sara would spend her special day in New York City with a friend, after her appearance on the Today Show (see Stampin’ Up!’s blog and Sara’s Instagram and Facebook), Sterling and I took her birthday gift to her early, hoping she would use it while on her trip.
