weekends with these two is about as dreamy as it can get. the wake up calls from a tiny human making like a banshee; the giggles and rough-housing within the coziness of the covers; the late breakfasts and all day treats while exploring our beautiful city. together is our favorite place to be.
we started our Saturday the way we always do: a morning walk to the streetcar for a ride to the market, where we pick up fresh fruits and veggies for the week for mere pennies. this week we detoured first to the train station behind our home to pick up coffee. we walked thru the huge halls, reading up on its history and admiring the old photographs, allowing ourselves to be transported back 100 years. when we made it to the great hall, we found a gathering around a grand piano, where a violinist and vocalist stood also, together performing a collection of Bach. it was pure magic as we paused to listen as the sweet sound filled and reverberated around the room. it was decided we would stay for breakfast to listen. we devoured everything to a mound of crumbs before heading to the river market. we browsed the many goods and fresh flowers and looked on as Aidric chased the birds through the park. with the falling leaves, warm hues, and brisk temperatures, it was impossible to tell spring from autumn. we weren't ready for the fun to end, so we stopped for lunch and to explore several other shops in our neighborhood before landing at home.
now as my sweet boy naps soundly and the fur babies snore on the couch with me, i can't help but feel so grateful i get to share and create a life this good with my most favorite humans. always a lesson in gratitude with these two.
