A winery and the biggest piece of cheesecake ever...

For our 4 year anniversary Drew and I checked out a local winery called Vinoklet in Colerain, which was on our Cincinnati Bucket List. The food was good, the wine was delicious and the views were incredible. I felt like Dorothy...."We're not in Ohio anymore, Toto."
After a delicious meal (which included a bottle of wine) we decided to spice things up and go somewhere else for dessert. We ended up at Grand Finale one of our favorite spots in the adorable village of Glendale. Usually when we go there we split a dessert, but we each got our own this time. Big mistake. I ordered their special of the night which was a piece of Kahlua Chocolate Chip Cheesecake and it was huge. I had to take half of it home, which was fine because I ate it for breakfast the next day.
We had a fantastic time laughing and reminiscing about the past and then planning ahead for our next year of marriage. 4 years down...forever to go.
