2. Last night John and I got to meet an author that we both admire. Kent Haruf is a Colorado native and his books Plainsong and Eventide are two of my very favorites. Our local bookstore hosted him for an author reading and book signing event and it was wonderful. It was a very smallish and quaint affair and Mr. Haruf was charming as he spoke to an audience of about thirty-five folks about characters in the fictional town of Holt, Colorado. His newest book, Benediction, is the one he read from last night. John devoured it and our newly autographed copy is the first on my list for summer reading.
3. After the book signing, John and I walked down the street to our local mexican place and caught up with each other over dinner. I haven't been the easiest person to live with lately because I've been busy and distracted (and you could also insert crabby, impatient, short-tempered) so I was desperate for us to spend some time alone together. There's just something about sitting on a restaurant patio with a basket of chips and salsa between you on a perfect evening in May that makes all things right again.
5. Happy Friday!!! I am hoping for a low-key weekend with a few naps and some fun and some time outdoors mixed in. What are YOU looking forward to?
