pictures and pictures and more pictures

So, Eric and I celebrated 6 years of wedded bliss earlier this month.

After securing a screaming deal ($65 for the night!!  Amazing!) on, we decided to forgo our usual Metropolitan Inn, and spent a night in these lovely digs instead.

Meanwhile, Heather found herself enjoying a change of bedtime scenery as well.

Our date included, among other things,

A morning stroll through the mostly deserted (because nothing was open yet) Gateway Mall:

Also, a leisurely stroll through downtown Salt Lake City, where we viewed numerous bits of quirky-ness:

Nearly an hour in the most unique bookstore I've ever experienced:

A visit to the Semi-annual Used Booksale at the Salt Lake library:

My sister turned me on to this idea. She buys holiday books at garage and library sales, and then puts them in a special basket for holiday reading at the appropriate time of year. I started our collection about a year ago, and it found resounding approval from both Eric and Heather.  So, I'm continuing on.

A return to the Gateway for lunch and a little bit of oil and vinegar tasting:

After which, we hopped in the car, and headed home, fulfilled, happy, and ready to tackle regular life once again.

The End.
