I had two dates today!!
My first date was a weekly coffee date with my husband!
This time instead of driving to the Kaladi Brothers Coffee shop, we rode our bikes!
(That is supposed to be a happy smile, despite what it may look like.)
The bike ride took us about 30 minutes. I love riding my road bike–it is so speedy!
When we arrived at the coffee shop, we were warm, so hot coffee did not sound all that appealing. We opted for iced Americanos instead.
I also had half of a bagel with Laughing Cow Cheese + raspberry jam. (I think raspberry jam is my favorite, and I can’t wait to pick fresh raspberries later this summer and make my own jam!)
After our date, Craig went to work, and I biked back home.
I had laundry and packing to do for my trip to Minnesota tomorrow!!
My second date of the day was with my friend Katie at Middle Way Cafe–one of my favorite cafes in Anchorage!
I love the bright, vibrant colors inside and the clean, organic feel the place has!
I will never forget the time Craig and I saw Drew Barrymore here!
I have been craving a huge salad lately, so that is exactly what I ordered.
It also came with a couple pieces of bread.
Sadly, I wasn’t all that impressed with the salad. I thought it would have more than just veggies on. (I don’t know why–obviously I didn’t read the menu very closely.)
It was good and the Lemon Ranch dressing was excellent, but it just needed something more. Oh well, I definitely got my fill of veggies in for the day!
I’m off to do some more packing!
I fly out tomorrow morning, and I can’t wait to see my family and friends! I am sad that Craig won’t be able to go with me though. We won’t see each other for 3 weeks!
What is the longest you have been away from your significant other?
Long periods of separation is the story of our relationship. We dated long distance for 10 months, which was not fun. And now when I fly back to Minnesota (twice a year), Craig usually isn’t able to go with me and those 2 – 3 weeks feel a lot longer. I’m gonna miss that guy!
