Day one in Oklahoma City has been fantastic. I woke up on my own accord this morning to a house that wasn’t bursting with needs before I could even keep my eyes open. I gotta tell ya, this whole “break” thing is like watching a newborn smile for the first time. It’s laboring to get to this point and then once you’re here – you just want to rewind that one moment for the rest of time and live right there, in that peace, in that joy.
Oklahoma is that joy right now. I talked to the sitters yesterday and to Jessica once, and I miss them. But I love this break. I needed this break.
Christa and I went to lunch at Wedge! for lunch yesterday, soooo good. So very good. Then we got pedicures and went shopping until dinner – which we ate atIguana on the porch outside and drank pomegranate margaritas. A lady bug joined my taco salad for dinner, so until that point it was delicious – after that, it was a bugs home … and well, I ate chips. But I would go back. Oh yes I would.
We walked right next door to Sara Sara cupcakes for dessert that we brought home from later and are still sitting in the fridge. I got the blueberry honey to try, I’ll let you know how it goes.
Christa and I took a walk after that and Paul delivered the cupcakes to the house (Paul and Christa are who I’m out here visiting) we walked to the Oklahoma Bombing memorial … Ahhhh-mazing. And all the thought and detail behind the memorial was surprising to learn about and endearing to see.
We ended the night driving around and looking at houses, sipping wine on their front porch and watching bad television. Folks, it just doesn’t get better.
