This weekend my husband and I celebrated our five year anniversary. This accomplishment astonishes me when I think about it. I don't feel that old (I'm not, actually; we got married very young), but I'm also aware of how much we've changed. We have so much fun together, and it keeps getting better! What a cheese-ball.

Seriously, I'm inspired to read up on ancient Greek history (any book suggestions?). The foodie in me loved the tavernas, souvlaki stands, and street cafes. A friend of mine who lives in Athens gave us some awesome tips and took us out to a traditional greek meal. We booked a cute hotel room within walking distance of the Acropolis and played love-struck tourists for three days. Here are some highlights:
