Seven Years Ago Today

with 32 comments

Yesterday was quite special. We started with brunch at Blue Bottle, where for the first time I had a chance to try one of their famous Siphon Pots. Add a Belgian waffle and a grilled cheese sandwich, and whoo, what a brunch:

A few hours of goofing around town, and we settled in at Salt House for dinner:

Bridget easily picked the best dish of the night with her appetizer choice: Kennebec fries covered in Vermont cheddar and short rib gravy. Would have gone great with my NY steak if we didn’t eat them all in like 30 seconds!

Yeah, I know, lots of pics of Bridget. Can’t help but snap away in the direction of the one who I married seven years ago, today. Love you honey, happy anniversary =)

(ok technically yesterday but you swear I’d blog right after a dinner like this!)

  1. Well congratulations to the both of you. By the way Jonathan, take your wife out without the camera every so often…then the numbers will continue to climb.

  2. Great set of pics as usual man. I am seriously envious of all the good eats that SF has. Really makes me want to move down there for good haha. Anyway, the main point of this point of this post was to say… Congrats on the anniversary Jon, Bridget! And to many more in the future! πŸ˜€
