The last anniversary of any sort I celebrated was my workiversary when we got a bunch of deep dish pizzas because when you're a small company, you can be big on celebrating everything. The one before that.... was probably in high school.

This one feels like the sixth one. I suddenly understand how adult relationships can have such an abbreviated time frame. No longer "Omg they got engaged after just one year?" More like "Oh wow one year, okay."
I am not engaged.
But I am living with a boy, and it's weird and easy and frustrating all at once.
All we do to celebrate is eat. Naturally.

known for the chicken and waffles, but we went with pulled bbq sammich and smoked chicken and shrimp gumbo

slanted door spring rolls, chicken claypot, cellophane noodles with dungeness crab, soft scrambled eggs with long beans were overall underwhelming for how yum the descriptions sounded but I was mostly pleasantly surprised he picked a spot I had starred anyways

bryce had high high high praises for this place - the truffle butter edamame was evidently bomb - so I saved it up in my birthdays back pocket

Rise Biscuits and Donuts
