Yesterday was really lovely. Doris and I had our monthly date night (day); it was a boat tour on Lake Michigan. An LGBT group sold tickets as a fundraiser, and I surprised Doris by having our friend Eric meet us there. I'd never done this before and was worried it'd be boring and feel too long, but it went by fast. There was a brunch, after we ate we sat at the top level and enjoyed the beautiful Chicago skyline from the water and had a few drinks, and to top it off I won a raffle prize! The raffle prize is cool; it's a photo session with a pro. I talked to him today to book the appointment and I think it'll be fun.
Oh! And the cruise did this thing where they take your picture as you board. I'm so NOT photogenic, but our pictures turned out great so I bought them.
Interestingly, at the end of the "booze cruise", the announcer who works for the cruise line said they do private parties and anniversary parties, etc. I talked to him a bit - you can rent out an entire deck (like the LGBT group did) or just book a few tables. Hmmmmm. Doris and I have been thinking about options to celebrate our 15 year anniversary next year. This might be an option. It's wheelchair accessible which is good since her dad is having a bit of trouble getting around. Also, there was also a dance floor in the middle both decks, so if the weather had been bad, people could've had fun dancing. So you can have fun even if it rains.
