today was just one of those perfect days.

where you really thank God for blessing your life. For your husband who you get to keep falling in love with over and over again.

Because he likes to take you on little dates, like exploring the charming downtown of the next city over in New Mexico. 
They have a Farmers and Crafts Market on Wens. and Saturdays from sunup to 1 p.m.  I can't resist locally made anything, and my two "weaknesses" are coffee beans and hand made soap-- both smell delicious! I can't wait to go on a Saturday when the market doubles in size.

i had the best hummus sandwich and house salad ever at la iguana with my favorite company.

with an Aztec Hot Chocolate to go, we enjoyed endless stacks at Coas Book Store where i stayed true to my new years resolution but scored when it came to records. Like Eric Clapton's Slowhand on vinyl {instantly took me back to childhood when my pappa would play it and introduced us to his music}.
i squeezed in a run at the gym and afterwards, cooked dinner to "wonderful tonight." Is there any song more romantic? it's one of the best for sure.
also bought : billy joel's The Stranger and his Turnstiles -- truth, just to hear "New York State of Mind." It was absolutely worth it. Everything just sounds better on a turntable. My husband shared the story that the first record he ever bought was one of Billy Joel's. Another musician that reminds me of my father & childhood ("Piano Man" especially). 

today was perfect. a little adventure with my husband. i want to bottle it up and remember how this day felt and keep it always.

Wellll . . . this does indeed sound like a perfect day. I'm happy for you & books & coffee and all things to be excited for. I want to come to El Paso and have a similar date with you! I'm determined to get us all to Wichita Falls this year, though, for girls' trip 2012. I need more travel money!! :)
