Richard and I have always loved going on dates, no matter when the time. Before Ariana came along, we used to go on breakfast dates to get pancakes all the time when we lived in Omaha. Now, we spend a lot of time being parents and sometimes we need to have a moment alone to be a couple. When Rich had a day off and Ariana had preschool, a breakfast date was in order!
We went to the Britcafe on base. It reminded us of our time we lived in England. We sipped our cappuccinos and reminisced about old times in England. We also talked about our plans for the summer and other little things. The full english breakfast was yummy and it even started to rain, just like England. We listened to British news on the TV and soaked in the atmosphere. I even talked a little in my British accent (I picked up some words while living there) and we giggled together.
Afterwards, we did a little shopping in the British Shop where we found Pimm's, one of my favorite drinks from England. You mix it with lemonade and fresh pieces of fruit and it's so cool and refreshing on a hot summers day. It reminds me of the Newmarket Races. We daydreamed about hopping over to England for a couple of days and revisiting London and our old town of Newmarket where every summer they have horse races and outdoor concerts. Newmarket Nights. Eating cornish pasties, wearing big sun hats, and betting on racehorses - I love it all.
It was a lovely breakfast date, just what we needed. Something we need to do more often for sure!
