{Our Two Year Wedding Anniversary}


Happy Monday everyone! How are you all doing? It’s been snowing buckets in Amsterdam and it’s been causing all sorts of chaos – with trains and planes – and worst of all.. with me! I guess biking in 23-degree weather was a bit ambitious for me, because this weekend I came down with a nasty bug that has me bed-ridden today. Husband is taking great care of me and it’s not so bad having a beautiful snowy view out the window. I just wish I could go outside and enjoy the wintery white weather!

Speaking of the huz… Corey and I are creeping up on two and a half years of marriage! Now, I know that’s not a super long time, but what I will say is boy does time fly!! I feel like we just celebrated our two-year anniversary, which I realized I never blogged about!

While I wish we could’ve done something extravagant and luxurious to celebrate our wedding anniversary, I was flying out to Portland the next day and work was crazy busy at the time, so we settled on a romantic dinner at a gorgeous restaurant. We got dressed up and headed to De Kas. This place is so awesome. It sits on the edge of a lush city park in Amsterdam and is probably the coolest looking restaurant we’ve ever eaten in. It also happens to be one of those super fancy restaurants that doesn’t really have a menu. Each day the chef has a three-course dinner planned that consists of three small starters, a main course and dessert. The best part is everything is made with local, fresh ingredients grown in the restaurant’s very own nursery.  We decided to fancy things up even more and get the wine pairings with dinner. The whole things was a fun and special experience and the perfect way to celebrate two years of wedded bliss. Here are a few photos from the occasion.

And P.S. Yes, our wedding anniversary was in August and yes I am wearing tights and a blazer... Why? Because there is no summer in Amsterdam. Yeah, I guess you could say I’m bitter about it :)

  17. Happy 2-Year Anniversary and better yet.... Happy 2.5-Year Anniversary! I am not married and far from it, but seeing my sister and brother-in-law in their newlywed stage, each month is definitely a celebration. As much fun as it is... it's hard. :)

    You look adorable. We featured that dress on our site (nordstrom.com)and I although I loved it I thought no one would be able to pull it off. I was completely wrong. The dropped waist on you looks so fun and still shows off your figure.

    Stay warm, friend.

We too, have been married for 2.5 years, and when we were in Amsterdam last year celebrating our 2nd anniversary we had lunch at De Kas! It was a magical experience. Reading this post was like a walk down memory lane... Thank you :)
