“When I asked my Da how ye knew which was the right woman, he told me when the time came, I’d have no doubt. And I didn’t.”
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 27
Claire and Jamie may have missed 20 wedding anniversaries together, but I bet if they lived near an establishment similar to Ruth’s Chris Steak House, they would definitely celebrate there. In today’s blog, I celebrate 22 years of marriage with my husband, sharing our traditional anniversary outing. Just like Jamie and Claire, my hubby and I are soul mates!
In Outlander, Claire traveled through time, and Murtagh escorted her to the cabin where she first saw Jamie. In my personal story, my mother took me across the street to meet the family that had just traveled across the country. For Jamie, it was love at first sight…for me as well.
Back in September 2016, we posted a great article about going whiskey tasting with our husbands. To honor Saint Patrick’s Day, we thought we would repost it. We also hope to reintroduce a great place for whiskey – enjoy the read!
Fraser didn’t ask but poured them each a dram of whisky, warm-smelling and smoke-tinged. There was something comfortable in drinking whisky in company, no matter how bad the whisky. Or the company, for that matter.
Written in My Own Hearts Blood by Diana Gabaldon,
Of course, today our company was the best and the whiskey was right in line with the quality of our companionship. We, Sass3, took our Jamies – our wonderful husbands – out whiskey tasting together on a triple date. The men whom we just adore are loving, supportive, honorable, and caring – the Jamies of our lives who tolerate our fanatic worship of Outlander and who say with endearment, “Yes, dear…” every time we ask to attend another Outlander gathering or event. How could we not cherish them? So, our intimate group spent an afternoon savoring some spirits and took pleasure in simply being together.
Tea Upon Chatsworth is a cozy, quaint cafe located at 2180 Chatsworth Blvd. in San Diego, California. The tea room is a lovely place to savor tea and desserts. Patrons visit for a unique way to enjoy refreshments and conversation with friends and family. With antique tea cups and teapots, it has the romantic charm that will captivate any guest. Naturally, the ambiance attracted Outlander SoCal Edition, San Diego Chapter, to hold their Annual Ornament Exchangethere.
The San Diego family is a small, but close-knit group. Most of the Outlander SoCal Edition gatherings are centered around Los Angeles; however, San Diego hosts occasional events.

I truly enjoy attending events and gatherings that bring Outlander fans together. One of my favorite gatherings was held at the Domaine Artefact Winery located in Escondido, California. The winery previously held an Outlandish Wine Tasting event to help celebrate their wine entitled La Dame Blanche, named in honor of our beloved Claire Fraser.
