One of Those Days

November 7, 2013

But, not what you're thinking. My day started off with a trip to the grocery store. Believe it or not I enjoy going grocery shopping and preparing for the next week's meals. There's something so 'adult' about strolling through the aisles and picking up the items you want/need. If only I weren't paying for the bill at checkout! On this particular day I got a call from my sweet husband while in the midst of trying to find chickpeas, with an invite for a surprise mini date during his lunch. How could I possibly turn that down? Let's be honest, I would never turn that down. So at Starbucks we met, because he knows it's my favorite (remember the holiday drinks in their red cups are back!). There was something so simple and wonderful about being with my husband in the middle of the day, when I'm not supposed to be, to sit, talk, and sip coffee. Sometimes, it's the little things.

Next, I spent my afternoon with my sister-in-law working on home projects. Time to arrange  home décor and talk about any and everything, without interruption or other obligations, was quite a blessing today. And now, I'm curled up on the couch with that sweet husband of mine, warmed by the fire, drinking egg nog, munching on Oreos, and watching Grey's Anatomy. In this moment nothing could get better. Yes, today was one of those days, one of those days that goes quite perfectly and puts a smile on your face that just can't be kept away. I hope your Thursday was quite wonderful too!
