13th Wedding Anniversary!

A little over a week ago, my husband & I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary!
We decided to have a small overnight "staycation" downtown Eau Claire in our favorite hotel The Lismore. It was especially exciting due to the blizzard hitting western Wisconsin, dumping more than 12 inches on the city. 
We had a lovely corner room full of windows to relax and watch the storm. The wallpaper is really cool featuring vintage Australian newspaper ads from Lismore, Australia. 
We walked a few blocks down to our favorite sushi restaurant Ninja and started our night with these delicious and refreshing Cucumber Saki Mojitos. 
We continued the cucumber with these "Naruto Rolls" containing salmon, tuna, crab meat, avocado, wrapped in cucumber. So delightful and decadent.
We feasted on various rolls such as Phoenix, Volcano & Spicy Salmon, all top notch!
We spent the rest of the night drinking champagne in the ironically titled rooftop bar "The Dive" while admiring these commemorative artworks honoring local real dive bar "The Joynt"
Before retiring to our room, we listened to great music and watched cars get stuck in the snow, it was a romantic, memorable and and cozy night! 
Surprisingly we even made it home the next day. By 11 am most of the roads were mostly clear and that snowfall gifted us an unbelievable 12 inches!
