It's been a while since I blogged. This has become the starter of all my entries. But I wanted to take a quick minute to reflect.

Greg and I celebrated our first anniversary last Saturday.

We went to dinner in Santa Monica at a place we had spotted on our Valentine's date nearly a year ago. Hillstone. And now it's one of my favorite restaurants! Beautiful inside. Trendy modern. And the food was so delicious. Everything we had was so tasty.

After dinner, Greg handed me a card and surprised me with two tickets to see Cirque du Soleil: Totem which was playing on the pier!

We watched the show, which was amazing.

Afterward, I was feeling like dessert. I was a little sad that our original plan didn't happen. We had talked about returning to Susina Bakery on our anniversary, where we had our first date. We would have recreated it by sharing tiramisu. Alas, the show ended close to 11PM and that's when Susina closed.

We skipped dessert and headed home. But when we got home, Greg told me that he had one more surprise. He opened the fridge and revealed tiramisu from Susina! He said that he knew we weren't going to make it in time so he got it in advance.

I'm such a lucky lucky guy.
