happy place no. 003 | bookstores

When John took me to Barnes + Noble after a romantic dinner on one of our first dates, I knew he was a keeper.

Fast forward almost nine (?!) years later and he still knows the way to my heart. But nowadays, it’s by way of a caprese sandwich + a mini cupcake at Lemonade first ;)

Once we get to the bookstore, I beeline for the wedding magazines + the craft / home decor books, find a comfy spot for both us, and then sit and read until they kick us out. Oh, and the latte? A MUST.

(P.S. I am so buying that Martha Stewart book when the appropriate time rolls around. Or maybe before! I’m undecided…)

We are quite possibly the oldest 26 year old (un)married couple of all time, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Yes! I’m right there with you. All bookstores make my heart jump! I love visiting different bookstores!

  • JayEssJay

    This is our favorite date, too! I curl up with craft/home decor magazines, and my husband grabs a stack of cycling magazines. I’m all for free fun!!

    this sounds like the perfect date to me! i bet the bf and i could give you guys on oldest (un)married couple of all time and i am not even upset about :)

  • Shay

    love this & totally agree. every book reading girl needs a boy who does the same, glad to hear someone else loves to read just as much.

    i’m pretty sure we’re sisters from another mister. My favorite place in the entire world is inside a bookstore. Whenever i’m having a bad day, I find one and spend hours there. I’ve tried to explain to others the feeling I get from the bookstore, library or from reading books, but its hard to put into words. It truly is ‘my happy place’. :)

    Um, my bf and I are 21 and we do the same thing. We often feel like an old married couple, but it fits us perfectly. We’re seriously contemplating a trip around the U.S. to find the country’s best used bookstores.

    I moved to a new location and book stores are not as close as they used to be. I do love going to a nice cozy book store and curling up with a new book and some hot cocoa.
