“There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.”
Every anniversary should be special, but today just happens to be an extra special one since it’s my husband’s and my…
Which in my eyes is even more significant because we both happen to be in palindrome age years as well. I’m 22 and he’s 33. (Well, not exactly since that would have meant that our marriage was a punishable offense, but I think you get the picture.) Add to the significance of all of those special numbers the fact that it’s supposed to be a full moon tonight and I think you’ll agree that today must be charmed.
The day got off to a lovely start, when my husband presented me with this gorgeous bouquet…
And we surprised each other with Skagen watches – and that’s without even knowing that the 11th anniversary gift is supposed to be steel. (I just happened to look it up for the purposes of writing this blog post.)
Where our vantage point overlooked Columbus Circle up the south side of Central Park.
I could have spent the day just looking at the view, but with food this magnificent our attention was quickly diverted. (My Niçoise Salad looks five times bigger than my husband’s Grilled Cheese Eggs Benedict but that’s just camera perspective, of course…)
Our entrees were followed by this divine Chocolate Mousse which we split. The two mini cakes were compliments of the pastry chef.
As we were polishing off the last bites, my husband noticed a sparkly looking person down on the circle. To give you a perspective on his eagle eyes, I’ve added a yellow arrow to the photo to aid you in picking her out.
(Thank God for my Panasonic Lumix’s zoom feature!)
Then, to our surprise, she began to dance…
Until she seemingly “bumped” into a passerby and he, too, joined in!
And around the Circle they went…
Here’s to celebrating love and happiness with a good dose of laughter!
If you’re hurrying by the sleek facade of the Museum of Arts and Design, you could easily overlook this gem.
But if you’ve got good eyesight (or a zoom lens!) you’ll notice that that this restaurant on the southwest corner of Central Park has an incredible vantage point.
The menu is cheery and straight forward…
With clean and fresh flavors that are matched by the airy and light ambiance.
I ordered the endive and apple salad with chicken…
(And loved every bite!)
Tables by the window are booked weeks in advance…
But even if you can’t nab one of those, you’ll still be guaranteed a great view!
