Good afternoon lovelies!
I love Saturdays at the store. Especially when its warm and beautiful outside. People eating outside across the street, our door swung wide open, and everyone coming in to visit with an optimistic outlook on life.
The boys also spend a few hours with me at the store on Saturday too. They definitely don’t love that as much as I do! But Aaron and I usually take turns manning the counter so that the other one of us can take the boys out for ice cream, to the library, or across the street for a special pastry treat from Max & Emily’s. Have I mentioned that I love our downtown? I do. Its sort of like a hidden gem here in mid-Michigan. We also make time for silly faces.
And its stuff like this makes me love our downtown even more! This artwork was left anonymously overnight – a foodie inspired crosswalk!
The boys and I are currently awaiting Aaron’s return to the store after an all morning long golf outing with the guys from our church. This means the boys are playing video games while I try to get some work done. New Around the Plate post done? Check! Edited an intern post? Check! Think through next week’s deals and discounts for the store? Check! Man, I love crossing things off my to-do list!
After work today we’ll be headed to a Youth for Christ banquet and then, hopefully, home! I’ve got an episode of Fringe to watch and a glass of wine to drink.
