Truly Sweet

When I left work this afternoon, I was intent on celebrating the sunshine by treating myself to lunch at one of my favorite cafes- Bagels & Beans!  In my city, we're not that lucky when it comes to places like this one.  The bagels here are always perfect, their fresh juices are delicious and many of their ingredients are organic. I also love the fact that they're situated in a spot that always seems to have sunshine. Last year, this was where I celebrated the start of spring, with a huge cafe au lait after the market one sunny morning.  Today it was too chilly to sit outside, but I was lucky enough to find a spot right in front of the window- with loads of sunlight streaming in and giving me that "to heck with winter" feeling!
So what did I have?  Well, maybe it's a bit of an odd combination, but I ordered an olive bagel topped with truffle cream cheese and slices of avocado.  It was so good!  With that I had a bottle of organic aloe vera juice- I could feel the healthiness going straight to my sunlight-drenched cheeks!
I left and decided to go for a little stroll through the city.  I wasn't really looking for anything in particular (especially after I'd spent more than half of my salary in just under a week- oops!), but man, it must've been my lucky day! As though they were waiting there especially for me, I spotted a pair of  T-strap purple and black 70's style heels- at a ridiculous price and in my size!  While I was trying them on, two ladies passed by and admired them.  It wasn't like I needed approval though- they were meant for me!
And just when I though it couldn't get any better, I practically bumped into a new espresso bar (Marx O' Larry's), just steps away from the shoe store!  Ok, I am not exaggerating when I tell you this was the best espresso I've ever had in my whole entire life!!!  It was so utterly Italian that it made me feel as though I were drinking it in the middle of Rome!  They even served it with a glass of water!  Talk about knowing a thing or two about espresso! The staff was also lovely.  When I left, I thanked them profusely for transporting me to Italy within the space of minutes.  They were thrilled to hear that and I was thrilled to find a place I know I'll keep coming back to.
It really was a perfect afternoon!  These small luxuries make life truly sweet!
