For love and cycling

Yesterday was a pretty special day. My husband, Chris, and I celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary. It really is hard to believe it's been so many years since we said "I do" in Guelph, ON, and how much we really have done in such a short time. 

Being pretty passionate about riding our bikes, Chris and I started incorporating them into our anniversary celebrations 2 years ago. This year was no exception. After taking in The Dark Night Rises, which was fantastic, we head out on our bikes over to Olympic Village. There we tested out the new restaurant, Tap and Barrel. I decided a nice glass of red was in order, and was more than pleasantly surprised. Everything there is local, and they're also trying something new with the wine. Instead of buying it bottled, the owners of Tap and Barrel have decided to get their wine in the barrel, and serve wine directly from them. This apparently minimizes the oxidization, and in my opinion, produces a great tasting wine!
A flavourful red for the lady and a tasty
beer for the gentleman.

After a couple drinks and appies, it was time to head home. Once again, we enjoyed a nice, leisurely night ride home. We chatted about life, how far we've come since our wedding day, and planned some adventures for the future. Overall, it was a great way to celebrate our lives together, with a beautiful city as the backdrop and a couple of bikes as our transportation.
