Brett and I celebrated our 1 year beanniversary (that’s “anniversary” in beantalk) on June 16, but we just finished celebrating last weekend. I know, I know, I’m spoiled.
Part I of our celebration was a trip to the Metropolitan Opera House to see the American Ballet Theatre perform “Le Corsaire“. New York was having an apocalyptic rainy night, but we rallied our way to the Upper West. Good thing too, because the show was amazing. One dancer in particular really blew our minds (and had the entire audience gasping!)
Brett surprised me with a picnic in Central Park and tickets to Shakespeare in the Park (“The Comedy of Errors“) for Part II. New York was considering having another rainy night, but the weather cleared up beautifully. Brett packed some of my favorite foods (plus champagne!) for our picnic on the Great Lawn. The show was hilarious – and especially entertaining because Jesse Tyler Ferguson was one of the leads! Funny man.
And finally, I had my turn to treat Brett to a little surprise last Friday night for Part III. I made dinner for us at home (which I’ll share later), and then we headed up to midtown for a magic show in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Might sound a little cheesy, and maybe it was, but Steve Cohen pulled off some tricks that we can’t even begin to figure out. It was magic, I swear.
Thanks for an amazing first (but really eighth) year, bean! Can’t wait to see what kind of surprises we come up with to celebrate the next 60 ; )
