Emery whisked me off to Ft Worth for the day today, shopping and a bit of lunch. We headed off to World Market for Barry's Tea, I was out and they carry it. Then some book shopping where this great statue sits outside the store. I just love it. Looks to me like a Grandpa reading to two grand-daughters. We had roasted vegetable pizza and some Killian's Red for lunch. I am a big fan of Killian's red. Always makes me think of our wonderful Irish Wolf Hound Killian. He was quite a dog. For dessert we had gelato, Emery had Coconut and I had a chocolate hazelnut gelato called "Donatella". Yummy stuff.
We did a bit more shopping, ended up buying a Clannad CD that I didn't already have. With all the years of the children doing Irish Step Dancing, we have a huge collection of Irish Music, but there is always room for more.
It was wonderful walking around hand in hand with this gentle man of mine. We stopped to look at different things, and somehow managed to steal a kiss or two while we walked around. It felt the very same today, dating this man as it did nearly 3 decades ago. Still that new love feeling, but better, there is comfort to it too. I felt that same first date excitement of holding on to his arm and having him gaze at me with eyes that still melt my heart to honey.
Love is grand, and combining that with pizza, Killian's red beer, gelato and shopping, it just doesn't get much better !
