Just you and I

Last night Kevin and I made burgers...

grown up burgers...

with sauteed cremini mushrooms...

and a little blue cheese for him...

and some cheddar for me.

And of course wine.

You can't have an adults only dinner without wine.

There was a chill in the air so I requested a red.  Kevin picked out a Zinfandel and it was perfect.

This morning I woke up a little later than usual and went for a long run in one of my favourite neighbourhoods.

Kevin snoozed.

I returned home and made us breakfast...

in bed.

Today we will celebrate Canada Day and a very special birthday.

I can't wait to see the kids.

I can't wait to have them home.

But the last couple of days have been lovely...


and just what we needed.


  1. Your special date sounds wonderful. Love the breakfast in bed, perfect.
    I just realized that is just what I need...something has been a bit off for me the last couple of days. I need a date with my hubby. Maybe tomorrow, grandma is coming over.
    Enjoy your weekend.
