weekend whoa-mance

Friday evening, I rushed to the brewery after leaving work. It was 6PM and I had a hot date on a cold winter night! I walked toward the bar and spied him sitting alone, a half empty pint in front of him, his leather jacket over the back of the chair next to him - saving a seat for me. He turned just then, smiled warmly at me, and suddenly we were the only two people in the room. He had a hoppy pint and hot honey mustard soft pretzels readied for me, and made me laugh and laugh until the world just fell away. He was, and always is, exactly what I needed.

(He had the pretzels & mustard waiting? I reckon he's a keeper. :D )

Rowing at the YMCA after a day of work, watching other sweaters walking or joggin' or playing basketball, my life lightened up when my reason for happiness walked around the corner, unexpected but especially wonderfully welcome - made my heart warm. Treasure those moments.

Beer and soft pretzels with mustard? Not only smart, but has good taste, also.
