a few of my favorite things

March 20, 2007

Over the weekend, I tempted Becky and Rama to take a break from their weekend to-do lists and indulge with me in two of my favorite things: ice cream and art supplies. It was so much fun.

You can see it the thrill in my eyes More photos >>

We wandered the art store like kids in a candy shop, meeting in the aisles every so often to compare our finds. I spent half a gift card, buying supplies I don’t normally use because, well, because I could. Then, we crossed the street to Milk, a sparkling new café that serves sundaes, milkshakes, malts, ice cream sandwiches and tiny ice cream bon-bons—all crafted with homemade ice cream. Yum. At our last stop, a little store jam-packed with pretty paper products, we saw one of Rama’s wallets. Like a proud wife, I asked Rama to pose with his creation and snapped a shot to send home.

I can’t speak for Rama and Becky, but it was just the kind of outing I’d been needing. The sweets, color and laughter shared fed my hungry soul.

    Too late, you’ve already spoken for me because we have such similar interests. Invite me out for a day of sweets, paper and art supplies and I’m there! It was just what I had been needing too :)
