Unfortunately, date nights around here are pretty rare. With living far away from family and very limited number of people we trust our children with, family date nights are a lot more common. So every time we visit in Indiana, Hubs and I always squeeze in a date night or two. Thankfully, our family are very understanding of our situation. Plus, I don't think they mind the extra one-on-one time with their grandchildren.
With our wedding anniversary being four days away (at the time), Hubs and I took advantage of our weekend visit to Indy to celebrate our upcoming 10th (a decade!). The weekend was jam packed with events and trying to see both sides of our family so we opted to go out for breakfast instead.
//Herb Farro: creamy farro, pickled mushrooms, sunny egg
We were still exhausted (mostly Hubs) from driving Thursday overnight but we were determined. We aren't sure if we will have a chance to celebrate on the actual day so we rolled out of bed and got ready. It's amazing how quickly we get on the road when we don't have three other people to get ready, too!
//Hubs: Hangover Crêpe. Buckwheat crêpe, soft scrambled eggs, bacon, cheddar, chives, served with greens.
//Mine: French Toast. Brioche, cinnamon sugar, maple butter, Indiana maple syrup
We decided to go to one of the fave brunch places when we used to live in Indianapolis. Hubs jokes that since he couldn't take me to Europe for our 10th anniversary, he took me to a French bistro instead. I would be offended except the place is really good. Great atmosphere and really awesome whole food.
As expected, we did not regret waking up early and the one on one time. In fact, we vowed to go out on more brunch dates. So happy early anniversary, love! Here's to hoping we can celebrate again tomorrow ;)
