Today is my relax and catch-up day. It's going really well so far and I'm enjoying it.
Friday, I flew from Denver to Phoenix to see Florence + the Machine. I had a great lunch at this wonderful Mexican restaurant where I ordered something I don't see in Denver (no point in visiting elsewhere if all you're going to do is the same thing you did at home). There was used bookstore across from the hotel and I found a trilogy that I had been unable to find used in Denver. The hotel was located in this kitschy shopping area with about 20 shops ranging from a vegan eatery to a world imports store with stuff from Nepal and other out of the way places. One of those shops was a used clothing store. I had been looking for a second-hand sport coat for ages (I rarely buy anything new) and could never find anything my size. I found this gorgeous black, Italian sport jacket for $50. Florence was awesome in concert. My wife and I had the best time. It was a day where I got all the parking spots and hit all the street lights.
My vision is to make everyday the best it can be with what I have to work with that day. It's not every day I get fly to another city just to cross something off my bucket list. So I don't want to be someone living just for the "big" moments and let the rest of the days languish.
I have till 3 more hours to get everything I want to do done today and then my wife and I are going over to some friends to watch Game of Thrones, and it's going to be just as great as my day in Phoenix.
