Alex and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner! We went to a restaurant in Alexandria called Bastille. It was delicious! As we were walking out the restaurant we heard what we thought was thunder. However, it was a little too consistent and close to be thunder. We stepped outside the restaurant to see bright flashes of light...FIREWORKS! Someone was setting off fireworks on a boat out in the water. They were big, legit fireworks too! So we stood and watched the fireworks from behind the restaurant. it was a great end to a great evening!
On Friday, Alex and I decided to check out our new local Whole Foods. We had one within walking distance from our old apartment and we really miss it! I found one that's close by, not within walking distance, but close enough. We went in and discovered this new thing they're doing called "5 after 5" that runs from 5-7pm. You pay $5 to sample 5 different wines and appetizers spread out around the store. So while you're shopping, you can enjoy some wine and snacks!
It's every Friday and if you bring back your wine glass, it only costs $4 the next time! It's a really cool idea and a fun way to get your Friday started :-) We really enjoyed it and will definitely be checking it out again this Friday
I didn't take a picture of the "5 after 5" thing but this photo is from a wedding I shot a while back.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
