Happy Anniversary and Thanksgiving!

Tomorrow will be our 6th Anniversary!! Wow, where did the time go? I must say I just love my hubby to bits and am ever so grateful that we're married and I just love spending time with him doing whatever, be it going for drives, looking at real estate (yep, we're still hunting for a place), playing games together or just being silly. (I especially love being silly with him!) I love you Marko and I couldn't imagine life without you!!

Here we are 6 years ago:

It's my favourite picture! This year to celebrate we not only went out for supper we also got away for an evening. It was such a treat. Grammie Peric offered to watch the kids for us so we immediately set out to find a nice place to eat and a nice place to stay for the evening. We had supper at Mosaic which is a favourite restaurant of ours. Then we were off for Victoria By the Sea, a lovely part of the Island. We stayed at the Orient Hotel which is run much more like a bed and breakfast. We had a wonderful room called the driftwood room. It had it's own little sitting room and large ensuite bath. So delightful. It was on the top floor and ever so quiet! I just loved it. In the morning we went down to the tearoom for our breakfast which was just so scrumptious, poached eggs with Holandaise sauce with fresh fruit! Marko didn't have the egg but did enjoy the fruit and the toast and cereal that was available.

After breakfast we packed up and headed out to explore the area and enjoy the fall colours. It was pretty wet so we didn't make many stops but still the countryside was alive with colour! We headed into Summerside and Marko bought me a great set of baking bowls, measuring cups, measuring spoons and a whisk. (You can never have too many bowls or measuring cups and spoons!! :) We took the scenic route back into town and had lunch at Pizza Delight and then we headed back home to see how Grammie Peric made out with the kiddos. They had a good time but now Emma-Lyn is feeling a bit under the weather.

Tomorrow my family will be here for Thanksgiving. We're simplifying things by getting Swiss Chalet to make dinner and we'll bring it home to share! I'm totally looking forward to that! Yum!

Here are pics from our little getaway:
