Hi friends, welcome back! This past weekend Jon and I celebrated our three-year anniversary in quarantine together, in an anniversary to remember. Our prior anniversaries have always been somewhat extravagant – on our first anniversary I moved to NYC and for our second anniversary we explored Scotland, but this year was very different. I hadn’t planned much for our anniversary because I thought we would be heading back to Michigan to prepare for the wedding, I never thought we would be stuck in quarantine, but we still made it special!
Our anniversary is May 29th, and this year it ended up being on a Friday. We both worked and then afterwards, we exchanged cards and gifts. We both got each other apartment decoration related items, that must mean we are adults ha! Afterwards, we strolled through Battery Park to get some fresh air. It was a gorgeous day, almost 80* and not a cloud in the sky, so refreshing!
For our anniversary dinner, I found this salmon recipe with dill sauce, so we decided to give it a shot. The dill sauce was so delicious we ended up making it again Sunday – it’s incredibly versatile and perfect with any meat. We also made some naan bread to dip in the dill sauce and it was the perfect combo!
We ended the night watching Shrek 2 (sentimental to us) with a big scoop of cookie dough ice cream and heath bar bits.
Our actual anniversary wasn’t super eventful this year, so I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and share some of my favorite memories together over the past year 🙂
Spent Fourth of July in Michigan and drove all the way back to NYC after our flight home got cancelled.
Experienced my first Yankees Game together.
We ate a lot of delicious pizza – our favorite so far is Prince Street Pizza
Spent my birthday weekend in Michigan golfing and attending a wedding in Traverse City.
Explored Governor’s Island

Hiked Breakneck Ridge rated 10/10 for difficulty – the ice cream afterwards was very deserved!
Fell in love with Manchester, VT – this was my favorite memory together the last year. I loved being in this small town, hiking, and eating cider and donuts.
Spent a weekend in the windy city for a friend’s wedding and indulged in some Chicago style pizza.
