Kim & I spent the morning yesterday at the Guglhupf Bakery and Café. We’re doing the café’s in the mornings so I can get on the internet to publish the blog. This one is our favorite. Fun little German bakery with lots of cool art, and free wi-fi… We’re back again this morning.

Yesterday, we drove to University Mall in Chapel Hill to meet up with Pam Owen, have lunch, and SHOP… I was expecting the standard mall with all the same old shops you see everywhere. They had a few of those, but most of these were local and really cool. Warmed my heart. Check out the geckos. Sometime, I’ll tell you about Steve and the Geckos. It was a bonus to see Pam again.

After we stocked up at the Wall of Chocolate at A Southern Season we headed home. Kim has a supply of her favorite movies. I had never seen Amelie, so we put it in.

If you haven’t seen Amélie, I think you should. It’s the ultimate feel good movie, and lo and behold, it’s French.

The movie got us talking about relationships. How sad it is when women think we might have found “the one”, only “the one” can’t seem to make up his mind…. Hmmm, do I want YOU or do I want something or someone else? THE ONE will not have any trouble making up his mind.

Darlin’, if he can’t decide, he’s definitely NOT the one.

One of my girlfriends has an expression for what she’s looking for: “The man who will walk across the crowded room for me.” She means the man who sees her, and no one else. Kim and I both had one when we were young. That first love, that we let get away – for really really stupid reasons.

I’m so grateful for Steve. I was the one who couldn’t make up my mind. HE on the other hand, bless his heart, loved me from the very beginning. I never worried about that. And I thank God every day for that.

    Hi Pam and Kim. So good to see your wonderful faces again. So, Fawn, did you buy Steve another gecko? If not, the metal fella on your bathroom wall could use a friend……

    I do look forward to your sharing “all”,check in almost every day. This time next week, you will have visited and already be on your way to Maine. Never even thought of doing anything “special” when I turned 50. I think I was figuring out how to be a kindergarten teacher back then. Maybe I can plan a “special” for when I turn 80, never too late!! Being seeing you, SOON!!!!

    Hi Fawn:

    I’m so glad that you are sharing this journey with me. I’m really enjoying your stories and your insightful reflections.

    Say Hi to Em and Lawrance for us. Sure hope they survived the storm. The news made it sound as though all of Stamford was leveled.

    Love to you.

    Susan (and Guth too, of course!)

      Hi Susan & Guthrey,
      So glad you’ve joined in. I’m not too worried about Stamford. News always seems to get exaggerated, but we’ll see.
      Love you back.
