i met a man while wearing this...

1.09.2013




{the husband is ok with it}...  you see, this man was grocery shopping. 

I have a habit of sorts where sometimes when I'm by myself  in public, people just start talking to me for no reason.   And usually, I oblige with a conversation.  On this day, I made a run for some fresh vegetables and fruit.  I'm picky about my veggies so I was scouring over the spinach, making sure it was just right.  Seems I wasn't the only one who likes to be meticulous about their greens. Walter, the man I met, is too.

 Walter was picking up some things for his sweet little wife of 25 years.  Twenty-five amazing years.  Being the newlywed that I am, I let Walter know I was enjoying the beginnings of married life and hoped my sweet boy would talk about me with the same affection and love he has for his wife twenty-five years from now.  What's the secret I had to ask.  How have you managed to stay together all this time? One simple thing...  the wife is always right!

I smiled and he did too. 

I left Walter picking over more vegetables.  When I arrived home I sent a message to my sweet boy simply saying "I Love You." Oh, and that I picked up a lottery ticket. Which of course had nothing to do with anything except for the fact that I....#hopewewin and that this wife is right about the numbers she picked.

  1. Beautiful you...I love having conversations with random people on the street, it's so much fun. And usually an older lady or man that I talk to. What she said was great, I like that. Hope you have a sweet day doll xx
