We had such a nice time at our tenth anniversary party last Friday night. It was super-intimate, with just four couples, one two year old redhead, and our own party of four. We live in a hotbed of amazing food right now, so between cheese, treats and ice cream from Bi•Rite Market, a growler of beer from Magnolia Brewery and pizzas from Ragazza, pulling the menu together was fast work.
There were a lot of other people we would've loved to have celebrate with us, but I decided that the last thing I wanted to deal with on our anniversary was other people's kids making a ruckus with our two loud and stompy angels. A little ruthless, but sometimes you've just gotta do what you've gotta do. It was a wonderful little get-together. Ten years is really something to celebrate.
This weekend we'll do a little more celebrating. Our friends will be watching the kiddos most of the day Saturday so we can get down to SFMOMA before it closes until 2016! There is a Lebbeus Woods exhibit we've been dying to see (I was introduced to his work way back in architecture school and have followed him since), and then there is The Clock, which I don't really understand yet but have heard a lot of buzz about. Then we'll see where the rest of the day takes us.
Have a great weekend, and be sure to come back on Monday because I just made a really great donut pan recipe that I can't wait to share with you.
