our 11th anniversary

I've been married to this great guy for 11 years. To celebrate, on Saturday, we drove to San Francisco to bike the city for the entire day (it's a tradition of ours). We biked across the Golden Gate Bridge and into Sausalito. It was a WINDY day to be biking across the bridge!

If you are looking for a fabulous lunch, I highly recommend the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. It's near the baseball stadium. They use premium ingredients to make gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. This is the Turkey Club. Yum! And they even have gluten-free bread if you so desire.

We ate dinner at Hot Spud near Fisherman's Wharf. This place came recommended from a friend. They use local ingredients and their menu is 90% gluten-free. This healthy option in the sea of unhealthy options down by the wharf was refreshing! We did, however, follow our healthy dinner up with a little chocolate from Ghiradelli Square. Just don't want to give you the impression that I am always good when it comes to eating!

We had a great day to ourselves. I am so thankful for the life we share together and for the three kids God has blessed us with. As we biked around on Saturday, we took note of the helicopter armed with a large gun flying around certain key locations in the city. I'm imagining they were taking extra precautions the day before September 11th. I am thankful to live in a country that cherishes freedom. I don't want to ever forget the men and women who have given their lives so that I can continue to love on my children and to grow old with my husband. Thank you.

Happy Anniversary. We too were in SF this past weekend celebrating our 13th annivary. Next time we should try biking that sounds like a fun idea to try.
