Sunday {day 319}

Sundays in the summer are my favorite. We have this farmer’s market downtown that I love.

Today we got these strawberries, which I honestly think may be the best I’ve ever eaten. So good.

Today was a pretty bad fibro day. We laid low most of the day (after our morning trip to the market) but tonight I was feeling antsy so we went for a walk. While we were out walking we passed this place downtown

20130623-230652.jpg and decided we needed to have a date night right then. Monsters U was amazingly animated and pretty funny. I love listening to the sweet hubs laugh out loud at silly jokes.

(Just in case you were wondering, I was supposed to leave yesterday on my trip but it got cancelled last minute. I’m frustrated about the reason it was cancelled but grateful for the extra time at home.)

-church in the park this morning, which was wonderful.
-blumen gardens (the garden center where we had our reception-sweet memories) had a sale on perennials and a “garage sale” where we got some pots. we got more plants for our expanding garden and some cool red, yellow and purple ornamental peppers.
-farmer’s market for more flowers this week! another beautiful vase full of wildflowers and some gorgeous glads on our kitchen table!
-date night (in the afternoon) with the hubs which including some craved french fries, a myfitnesspal day that doesn’t count, and a fantastic film called Beasts of the Southern Wild.

we are on our way home for some blt(a)’s (the a is avocado-yum!) and to hang out. such a good day, chock full of things to be grateful for. 🙂
