Since I am a total goof and didn't think to take our engagement day off from work, Josh and I both took the day after off to celebrate. After dropping Audrey off at daycare, we came home and enjoyed a quiet morning alone, before we decided on a whim to head out to Reston Town Center. We've had a gift card for going on 2 YEARS to McCormick & Smick's, but we never got around to using it because the location isn't that convenient for us. I'm so glad we saved it! It gave us a reason to go a few miles out of our comfort zone and to eat at a restaurant that we would normally never treat ourselves to. The day was absolutely beautiful outside so we sat on the patio, the food was amazing, our server was so kind, and it was wonderful to be just the two of us for a few hours.
We did some window shopping afterwards and as we were walking to the car we ran into one of Josh's oldest friends, Maryam, sitting outside at the bar of another restaurant! We haven't seen Maryam and her boyfriend in over a year, so we sat down and joined them for the remainder of the afternoon and caught up on life.
It was such a perfect day with my fiance. Now, on to the planning!
