Anniversary Love

On Thursday it was our 3rd wedding anniversary. We don't stick to tradition here, we buy each other what they want, whether it is in line with the traditions or not. 

I was completely spoiled. Hubby did some amazing wrapping:

I finally have a GHD and I LOVE it!

We both took the day off work on Friday to spend the day together. Hubby told me he had organised a lunch and dinner somewhere but wouldn't give me any clues. Just as we were about to leave, he told me to pack a bag, as we were going away for the night!

He wouldn't tell me where, but I was so happy to arrive at Piermont Retreat in Swansea on the East Coast and find he had booked us into a gorgeous spa cabin for the night.

The weather was a bit murky but our cabin was cosy and the spa was warm!    

Hubby took me to a nice little bakery for lunch and we were booked in for dinner at a gorgeous restaurant, called The Banc, which is housed in an old bank building:

It is beautiful inside, and the meal was just fantastic.

We shared a taste plate for entree, which included gravlax ocean trout on seaweed salad, broccolini with balsamic vinaigrette, chicken satay on fried noodles, and lamb kofta.  We both had the same main, which was (quoting the menu here) "dry aged grass fed black angus beef - aged minimum 21 days – roasted pink eye potatoes, banc aioli & mixed salad  & house dressing". Amazing. 

Dessert was white chocolate brulee with fresh local raspberries for me, and a mixed iced gelto plate with chocolate wafers for the husband.

It was such a perfect little break, and a huge surprise for me. I feel very spoiled and so lucky to have such a wonderful husband. :)
