O Solo Meo ... we meet again!
This week marks 15 years of marriage for Matt & I. As scouts fell on the same night we were unable to celebrate properly so we planned a joint Anniversary/Birthday dinner at our local Italian Restaurant for tonight instead.
D has been eager to take his girlfriend Lauren out to dinner. They have been a couple since not long after we arrived in the UK back in 2009. We decided this would work well in with our Italian night out. They were both so nervous... and so cute! Lauren had never been out with a friend before and was so anxious at first. D is very sad at the thought of leaving her behind when we return home next year.
We enjoyed some lovely Italian pasta and the kids even had dessert. The atmostphere at O'Solo Meo is simply divine. We took Z here a few months ago (while D was away at his school residential visit) to celebrate his good grades. It is like being back in Rome. The decor, the low lighting and the Italian speaking host all adds to the amazing atmosphere.
After dinner we headed back out into the cold air on our way to the car. D even offered Lauren his jacket as she let a little shiver go. She shyly refused. So cute! We dropped Lauren off at home, much more relaxed than when she left... and even met her gorgeous golden retriever.
A lovely way to celebrate.... 15 years of marriage for Matt & I ... and the promise of love some day for our boys! Young love is so cute.
