You rock. Thats all I have to say. Oh and Mr. Fig will definitely give Mr. R some pointers!

The Girl and the Fig has lovely flavored salt that I am sort of adicted to. Not to mention the food.

Happy Anniversary Joanna (and Eric)! That restaurant looks fantastic and I think I could definitely go for a Fig Royale!

Oh, happy anniversary...what a perfect restaurant to celebrate...the food looks absolutely wonderful...and what beautiful countryside as well!

A very Happy Anniversary to you both! And a special wish for so many more wonderful years to come!

Happy Anniversary! We are so fortunate to live near so many lovely places. Just pick a direction, drive an hour, and voila!!! Good going Mr. Fig!

Oh you two lovely birds... Congratulations... These pictures are GREAT!

Happy 15th Anniversary!

Oh my Gosh! I have been to this beautiful place to eat! I also ordered the Fig Royale! I know you had a great time and lovely dinner. Congratulations on 15 years and the beautiful new jewelery.

Happy Anniversary to you two lovebirds! Looks like you had a wonderful time in a beautiful place. Cheers to many more joy-filled years ahead!

P.S.: I only wish you would've left me a couple rags to sop up the blog-drool i fear i'm leaving behind after looking at those mouth-watering foodie pics! xo
