A short trip

Day 8 of the March Slice of Life Challenge hosted by the Two Writing Teachers! #SOL23

A short trip to Pittsburgh
Just the two of us
Meadows ice cream
A shoe store
Two burgers and fries
A sunset in the rearview mirror
Then back home

A surprise homemade banner
And a homemade triple layer cake, yum!
Thankful for our daughters
And rockstar grandparents
Thankful for Ikea shelves and a soon-to-be lego display
Thankful to be celebrating 18 years tomorrow

  1. “No ideas but in things,” advised poet William Carlos Williams. Your writing in this slice takes that guidance to heart! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for sharing your day with us. I like the tiny snapshots because they all contribute to a mood that I want to snuggle up in.


  3. How wonderful is it to be at a place in your relationship where a road trip, ice cream and an Ikea run is a romantic outing. =)

    Through the words and the pictures, I can sense the love you have for one another and throughout your family. It makes me smile.

    (I also love your bio/byline. Long live the Flair Pen!)
