Last Saturday was my and my wife’s fourth anniversary together. We spent our first anniversary in Singapore. Our second anniversary was in the Philippines. Our third anniversary we spent apart. I was here in the US and she was in the Philippines. We spent a lot of time talking about how we would spend our anniversary this year, after having missed one. I don’t recall what we had in mind anymore, but I think it was especially appropriate that we went to Olive Garden in Times Square for our Anniversary Dinner, since we spent so much time talking about being together in New York while we were apart. Plus, the food is pretty good!
The amount of food was just right for me. My wife wound up taking a lot of her dish home in a take-out bag, but she had a big breakfast and I just had cereal. Our dishes came with a soup or salad and breadsticks. We both got the chicken & gnocchi soup. It’s outstanding!
I’d like to have done more over the weekend, but I suppose we can put off a trip until a little later in the summer when the weather is nicer. Coney Island maybe? We did spend some time talking about the last four years and it’s hard to believe it has been that long. Time seems to have gone by so fast. It seems like just a little while ago we were doing the 5k run at Pulau Ubin for Run350, or watching fireworks in Singapore on New Year’s Eve, or hanging out at Patong Beach in Phuket, Thailand. Time seems to be moving even faster now that we’re both so busy. Hopefully we’ll find time in the coming year to go out, despite our hectic schedules, and create more wonderful memories together.
