happiness

Happiness is

-driving on a sunny day on the beautiful expressway without a destination
-singing loudly to the music as you share a can of coke
-smiling at the man beside as the breeze plays furiously with his hair
-breaking away at little towns and little pools because he wants a swim
-driving through a city he spent a few years at
-listening to old stories of wild parties and wilder women
-eating "for old time's sake" at every place he recognized
-meeting friends and bonding over coffee
-dining together like a couple of lovers on their first date
-getting surprise gifts at midnight from the man
-reviving lost memories over a beautiful lunch with more friends
-making promises and plans to meet again very very soon
-discovering new places and admiring it all
-buying little knick knacks like I do everywhere I go
-the impatient hubby patiently waiting at every little shop I slip into
-getting lost and driving on for over an hour in the opposite direction
and not minding it
-surviving 4 years of marriage and feeling a deeper special bond
-looking forward to many many more years of driving together, singing loudly to the music

Yes, we did all that this weekend.

Sweet. I'm been subjected to the "this is where I ate that time.." routine too. It's fun imagining the hubby in that lanky teen/undergrad stage, drinking cheap beer here and there :)

kahini: Thanks to you. Went to ABC Farms and zimply loved the place. Was trying to eat a little and drink a little at every restaurant. And then German bakery, of course. But that place I felt has lost its old charm.
