Zoom (Part 2)

In case you can’t tell, food plays an important role in my adventuring happiness. I had the chance to check out yet another delicious eatery… This food was EVERYTHING!

I also had my first encounter with Tacos 4 Life which has a beautiful mission to feed one child for every meal they serve.

They even had decor befitting an overall Arkansan sensibility.

Now, back to the business. Saturday was my day to say yes to everything that I wanted for my birthday.

I said, “Yes” to visiting my friend Candice’s shop, Hair Couture, and bringing home three new hair pieces.

(Cause my friends are awesome and run business that I LOVE to support.)

I said yes to reminiscing with my sis with a nostalgic meandering walk from the Fayetteville Square to Dickson Street.

We eventually wandered into our own little heaven on earth.

Yes, we are exactly those kind of nerds.

After climbing through all those books we worked up a powerful hunger and decided to go for some food.

Then we girls got gussied up and hopped in the car to make our way over to Eureka Springs. I had heard that there was this thing called, Opera in the Ozarks and that sounded like a great “First” for me to experience.


Opera in the Ozarks is something that all Arkansans should experience at some point. The soprano that night gave me chills.

Driving back was also an adventure. I don’t remember that drive being so dark in years past. We saw no fewer than three deer on the way back to Springdale.

In summary, I slept late every day. My lil’ sis spoiled me rotten. This was a great birthday!

While the weather held up for me, I spent Sunday making my way back home and outrunning this sucker.
