Hello all! Surprise! I had a striking feeling to spruce up the blog with a brand new name that I found more charmingly noteworthy. Without further ado, here is Dress Down Darling..
Ever had one of those random shopping trips when you find a great dress on sale that you don’t know when you’ll ever get around to wearing? Yes, guilty! This was one of those. I bought this dress off the sale rack from Target a few years ago and it’s literally been sitting in my closet.
Lo and behold, I finally had a fitting reason to wear it yesterday for date night! My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary a couple of days early by having a nice candle lit dinner at the same place where we had our wedding- The Madison. As we walked through the familiar brick adorned courtyard, lit with my favorite romantic string lights, I felt a rush of sweet nostalgia. There was a wedding going on at the Madison Room and it was lovely to think that was us just a short year ago. We proceeded to the restaurant for our reservation and I was so delighted to find Jessica! (our wedding coordinator). We gave each other a big hug and she greeted us with a Happy Anniversary.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our delectable dinner in between reminiscing and constant laughs from an impromptu fine dining etiquette trivia (thanks to good ol’ google!). It was definitely a night to remember.
