Belated anniversary celebration

1 week late. Better late than never!

This time, it’s modern pan-European at Gusto, in an enchanting 1930s art deco building. Never thought there is such a gem in Petone.

The moment we walked in, we were greeted by their friendly stuff. It was a weather from hell that evening, heavy rain and gusty wind. Definitely not a day to be out, let alone dressing all up for fine dining, with a baby! However, their warmth welcome and gesture made it a day full of sunshine. I love everything about this restaurant, friendly stuff, classy yet romantic atmosphere and delectable food.

Love your dress, especially on the dark lace part. I think if want to celebrate the anniversary with my hubby, the only thing I can do is keep the twins at my parent side...haha, cannot handle them

Doreen said...

Thanks hun. It is a once a year celebration so must enjoy to the max. LOL

Declan Isaac:
It is a hit-and-miss for us really. We make sure we bring along a pacifier and his favourite toy/pillow. 90% of the time AJ is happy being tucked in his capsule. Then again, he is still little thus can be easily managed/manipulated. I’m sure the day he starts walking, it will be a lot harder.

You’re lucky to have your parents/in-laws around to help. We are on our own here, so have make it work somehow if we want to continue enjoying our life like it used to be.

Training starts young. You have started AJ on fine food / fine dining. So maybe by the time he's able to run ard, he may also be able to sit and enjoy the fine food :p
