Coffee Talk 08.06.17

Good morning! We’re having some unseasonably cool weather here on the east coast this weekend and it’s absolutely beautiful. I woke up to 58 degrees this morning!

It’s perfect running weather, and also perfect sit-outside-on-the-deck weather. In fact, I spent most of yesterday afternoon reading a book either on the front porch or the back deck, depending on where the sun was positioned.

It’s been a fairly uneventful weekend around here, and I like it like that. We spent some time with friends on Friday night, hung out here at home for most of the day yesterday, and then last night Paul took me out to dinner for our anniversary at the Capital Grille. Our daughter took this picture before we left.

I ordered theΒ Generous Pour wine tasting menu, and that was fun. We feasted on lobster bisque and calamari for apps and then steak with Brussels sprouts for our main course and finally a decadent cheesecake for dessert. (Our waiter advised us to dip the calamari in the bisque, and he as right. It was fantastic.) Needless to say, I’ll need to do some detoxing this week!

It’s really crazy to think that I’ve spent 22 years with this guy.Β I mean, really. Who are these kids? I don’t even recognize them. (And why did no one tell me to grow out my bangs for my wedding?)

It hasn’t always been easy, but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Our most recent family picture was taken at the Jersey shore last weekend, and I think it’s pretty cool because that’s where it all began. (That’s where we got engaged.) To think that we made all this, it kind of boggles the mind.

So anyway, that’s enough sentimentality for one morning!

We’re off to church in a bit and then I expect I’ll be doing more reading on the deck this afternoon since I need to finish my book for book club and the weather is looking pretty fine! This is my kind of weekend.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
