/We celebrated our anniversary yesterday, starting with the ultimate indulgence of a two-hours massage at Dragonfly, a nice afternoon stroll in the French Concession, dinner at M on the Bund, glazing at the stars atop the M — like the numerous blessings in our lives over the last two years, and ending the perfect day, of course, with the delicious fruit (of marriage).

/Two years, and many more to go.
