Anniversary Adventures

Anniversary Adventures by Hello Jesso
Seven years ago at the Haymarket Hotel
This past weekend was my seven year wedding anniversary. I can't believe how fast time has flown on this incredible journey.

I  wanted to share with you what we did to celebrate - don't worry it's nothing soppy and there's no PDA - so without further ado, here are my four-anniversary essentials...

ONE - The husband.
This is pretty self-explanatory.

TWO - Room with a view.
In the words of Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle from Parks and Recreation "treat yo self". Sometimes we treat ourselves to a trip away, but this year we had a little staycation at The Upper House.

THREE - Adventure
Go somewhere you've never been. Do something you want to do. Make a brand new memory.
We ventured out to the end of the West Rail line into the New Territories to Tin Shui Wai. We didn't know what was there, but we figured as we had never been why not go and find out.

FOUR - Sunset
Once we got to Tin Shui Wai, we got in a distinct green New Territories taxi and headed to Lau Fau Shan - a small fishing village. On the other side of the water was China. You could see Shenzhen from where we were standing! The beach was covered in what looked like oyster shells and that's where we watched sunset. Sunset and oysters, that's romantic, right?

It was a lovely way to spend our anniversary and I can't think of a better place to have stayed than The Upper House.

The room was breathtaking, as were the views. The bathroom was the stuff dreams are made of (complete with my fave REN products). The first thing I did was have a bath because full-size bathtubs are a rare species here in Hong Kong. The service we received during our dinner at Cafe Grey was impeccable, and the food divine.

Seriously, I want to live here.

Looking forward to what this year has to bring and what we'll do to celebrate next year!
