10 Years in Captivity

But in a good way. Tomorrow Nancy and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary with a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Back in 2000 we took a fantastic trip to Greece - we spent some time on the islands, traveled across to the mainland and visited Olympia and Athens. It was probably our favorite vacation, and on one of our best days on the islands we traveled around Zakynthos sightseeing. We stopped at a small honey producer and ate traditional Greek yogurt with walnuts and honey - it was delicious. We ended the day at a romantic restaurant in the countryside where we enjoyed a candlelit traditional Greek meal with copious amounts of local red wine.

It was a day to remember, so tomorrow I'm going to recreate that day through food. I have planned a Greek supper to include moussaka with that wonderful combination of Greek yogurt, walnuts and honey for desert. Old romantic that I am, I may even drag out some candles.

Only one of us will be allowed red wine (due to baby), but I will lift my glass and hope for another 10 years as happy as the last 10.... and then refill it.

Here's to you babe - love ya.
