Today marks our 4-year dating anniversary! I can't seem to tell lately if a year is long or short. So 4 years... I guess that's probably pretty long! I can't even believe we've been married for almost
2 1/2 years. But it's been an incredible 4 years. If I were to describe it in one word, that word would be..
We've traveled so much, and done so much fun and happy things together! It's also been a treat for me to see Michael go through the last year of undergrad, then grad school, and seeing him accomplish so much. I love watching him and HEARING him do the things he loves. There's so much going on in his mind, his heart and his life ALL THE TIME...but somehow he manages to make time to always care about me and be the sweetest BEST hubby! Thank you, Michael. This may sound corny but sometimes I still can't believe how perfect we are for each other.
Michael is gone to Ohio for a gig starting today though, so we celebrated early on Wednesday at one of our favorite places to dine, Hondaya, in Little Tokyo. It's an Izakaya (a popular Japanese tapas-style dinner place where many order alcohol and munch on little dishes). The great thing about an Izakaya is they have SO many items on the menu.. so I always have an extremely hard time picking just a few things.
Have you tried mackerel sushi before? Michael LOVES that stuff. It's delicious. We got a few other things like one of my favorites, buta kakuni (stewed pork), and of course, some Sapporo beer! yummy!
And here's a happy reminder that's related to Michael!
