My sister and her husband celebrated their ninth anniversary in the triangle under the guise of work-related meetings for his job. We were fortunate enough to crash that party (a little). We are still discovering our new neighborhood ourselves, and together Katy and I found a few gems just down the road.
This bead shop. Where the artist gathered materials for her work. Then we split a Pain au Chocolate at Guglhupf Bakery. Both just minutes from CC! We agreed, all a girl needs is a good bead shop and a bakery.
We found more baked goods at Raleigh's State Farmers Market--plus samples of "the best" tomatoes. I picked up fresh corn, watermelon, and peaches for a special dinner this week.
Grilled Ham and Brie with a side of rascals at Foster's Market--a Durham original! Yum.
I've had many good conversations over sweaty ice water glasses and candelight--this one was no exception--despite Katy's somber face. Pure delight, these Dills. Happy Ninth and many more. Come celebrate chez nous anytime!
