So in case you haven’t noticed I’m big into celebrations. And traditions!!
We came up with some ideas to use in lieu of the traditional anniversary gifts (paper, wood, blah, blah, blah). So we’re not overly traditional, but we like traditions. Haha.
The first is to buy a book every year. Originally the idea was to buy some type of a coffee table book, but I fell head over heels in love with One Cool Friend.
This book is imaginative and humorous, and the illustrations have these funny little details that you are delighted to discover upon your second, third, and fourth readings.
I had to snap a photo of Kevin’s face when he got to the last page with the HILARIOUS surprise ending. He doesn’t crack up in publicquite like I do, but I still got a good smile.
By the way,
The bookstore behind Kevin James is the Tattered Cover, a cool Denver bookstore that used to be a theater.
We also stopped in Capitol Hill Books which smelled like OLD BOOKS! They have a really great selection of cookbooks, FYI!! And a cute little children’s section.
Our second tradition/gift idea is that we choose something new to try together every year. I’m thinking this year it’s going to be SUP (stand up paddleboarding. I have this strange obsession with wanting to try it!! I’ll probably hate it and be horrible at it, but I feel the need to try it. But we reserve the right to change our minds on that idea!
End of anniversary super lovey talk time.
Two important things from today:
This bowl of cherries from a co-worker was amazing. Although I’m pretty sure my office chair is now stained with cherry juice. I was actually very busy working this afternoon and I didn’t have a napkin handy!
Second, tonight we biked over to our posh Greenwood Village park and ran a few laps. There were some weird sirens/alarms going off. Was that for the weather? We didn’t know. We decided to just do another lap and go home. The weather was really windy with weird patches of sprinkles. I was hoping it was going to really rain!
Tomorrow is BIKE TO WORK DAY in Denver. Or it could be wherever you work too. Will you bike to work!?
Do you have a favorite bookstore? The Shop Around the Corner.
P.S. I don’t want to say, but I want to say something about the fires in Colorado. I honestly don’t track the news very well online and we don’t have tv at home so I didn’t exactly realize how bad it was. Praying for all those impacted and hoping it gets under control soon!
