May 2nd is a wonderful day in my family!  Not only do I get to celebrate my Mom's birthday, but it is also my 2nd wedding anniversary to the most wonderful man in the world!  The past 2 years have flown by, and we have had so much fun together!  

My parents are also the best ever!  Happy Birthday Mom, I love you bunches!  Thank you to both of you for all of your hard work this weekend in my yard!  I'm looking forward to growing more herbs this year and tomatoes!  

My parents were in town on Friday evening, and we went out to eat with Sam's parents as well in downtown Asheville.  We tried out a new restaurant that has only been open 1 month.  We went to Curate, a Spanish tapas bar.  Oh my it was amazing!  The food was incredible (I also loved the decor, I wanted to take our table, chairs, and chandelier home with me)!  The food was so good, that I actually ordered a chocolate mousse dessert, and then ordered a 2nd chocolate mousse dessert, because it was soooo good, and one just wasn't enough.  It was an exciting dinner as well, because, the men made the order of the 14 or so different tapas.  The food was new to all of us, and I didn't know what we had coming out to the table to eat, so it made for a fun atmosphere with that element of surprise.  I will say that as much as I love The Admiral in Asheville, dessert is their weakest meal.  I feel like they overdo the dessert at The Admiral, they try to add to many things to their chocolate.  I just want a good chocolate dessert, and that's what Curate had (I hope they always keep that chocolate mousse dessert on their menu!).  We had a great dinner, celebrating, eating good food, and drinking great wine!

I took a few pictures of my parents on Friday evening, I will be sharing more later this week.

I love every single picture from our wedding, it was such a fun and exciting day!  Thank you to Tamara Lackey for this beautiful image.  I love you Sam, and I'm looking forward to our 3rd year of marriage!  It keeps getting better and better!
