May the 4th be with you…


Can ya tell I am a Star Wars fan ?

My wife Jess and I celebrated 2 years of Marriage today..Married in a Lutheran Church but now attend and belong to an Episcopal Church. (Neither of which was me..as a Kid I was 1st Presbyterian)

Being that she is crafty and I am artsy we made each other a card.

Her’s was a 3-D Box Card..flattened here so you see the details (yeah that’s a sonic cup in her hand..for the hell of it right after the reception we drove to a sonic in our wedded glory)

img112I on the other hand did a brief cartoon history of our nearly 5 years together

img114 img115 img116we then topped off our evening with Dinner at our 2nd Favorite Restaurant Corked Wine Bar & Steak house in Bethlehem, Pa. An incredibly scrumptious meal a little under $100 but I gave a generous tip.

I had the Lump Crab Cakes (packed with crab meat, Sweet potato fries, Sugar Grilled Asparagus & Lemon Aioli & a Glass of Pomegranate/Cherry Sangria (Stemmari Pinot Noir/Pom Juice/Cherry Puree/Peach Brandy) with a maraschino cherry and a red raspberry

My wife Jess had the Seared Crescent Duck Breast (melt in your mouth) with Gnocchi over sprouts.

Both came with a wedge salad with blue cheese and House White Vinaigrette dressing and fresh White and Brown Bread.

For Dessert (After mentioning it was our anniversary) they brought out a board drizzled with a Happy 2nd Anniversary in Chocolate and we both tried each others dessert.She had the Fireside Marquise (Hazelnut Graham/Chocolate Mousse/Vanila Pastry Cream/Toasted Marshmallow/Warm Gianduja Sauce/Snowy Hazelnuts) and I had the Triple Chocolate Semifreddo (Frozen Chocolate Custard, Peanut Butter & Honey Pastry Cream, Crisp Chocolate Glaze, Raspberry Coulis, Roasted Peanut & Cacao Nib Crunch. Hands down here fancy S’More was better !

Here’s to many more years my Darling..we hit 5 years together come October 2nd <3
