Celebrating our 9 year wedding anniversary

9 years ago on 8-18-1, Jean-Louis and I got married at the Ocean Pointe Resort in Victoria. We've been together for almost 12 years. Needless to say, we have been through a lot. We pretty much do everything together. We've been inseparable since we got married. We have only spent something like 4 nights apart in the 9 years we have been married. I guess you can say we're not too sick of each other yet :)

For us, 9 years isn't really anything special. It's a lot of years to be married but it's no special number. Nevertheless, it is our anniversary and we had to celebrate. We wanted to do something we couldn't do with Tristan. Lucky for us, our anniversary day fell on a daycare day! Unlike last year where we spent it with family in Victoria, this year we actually had the luxury of spending most of the day, just the two of us.

We headed downtown to Ganache Patisserie in Yaletown for coffee and pastry in the morning. Coffee was alright but the croissant and pain au chocolat was delicious. Crispy on the outside, moist and flaky in the inside - just the way they are suppose to be! Maybe the best we have tasted so far in Vancouver :)

Next up was a movie at the Scotiabank Theatre. We watched the much talked about movie, Inception. We both liked it! 2 for 2.

Part 3 of our date was high tea at the Fairmont Hotel. We've never had high tea in Vancouver before but have been meaning to for awhile now. When Groupon offered high tea for two for $36, I just had to grab at the chance. It was a nice experience overall. We felt like royalty sitting there :) The teas were good and most of the sandwiches and pastries were good. We were a bit disappointed by the quality of bread served with the sandwiches but everything was quite tasty and we were full afterwards. So 3 for 3, right? Well, almost. Jean-Louis messed up our bill and ended up tipping them twice while I was in the bathroom :( Since we already paid for our Groupon, we were given a bill for the gratuity and tax. Jean-Louis didn't know and ended up doubling that bill. Yeah, I wasn't so happy for something like 30 minutes. So I'll rate our date 2.5/3.

Happy 9th Anniversary honey! No messing up next year, ok? Looking forward to the big 1-0 ;-)
