That Diet Coke Love

Sometimes Gracefully Diet Coke Sometimes Gracefully Diet Coke Sometimes Gracefully Diet Coke Sometimes Gracefully Diet Coke Sometimes Gracefully Diet Coke Sometimes Gracefully Diet Coke

The other day, I emailed Darrin with tacos on the brain and wrote with probably too many unnecessary exclamation points, You’ve got to stop at the store on your way home!!! We need tacos!!!! This was promptly followed by a short list of everything we were missing for a night of attempted Central American cuisine. Darrin biked from work to the grocery store and came home sweating through his polo {thanks, Minnesota humidity…}, all the while carrying our dinner ingredients in one arm. He sat the bag on the table, unloaded the chips and salsa and avocados, and then removed an iced-cold Diet Coke and an iced-cold Mountain Dew.

“One for you. And one for me.”

Darrin Dale Beekman, everybody. Married for only two years and has already nailed down a few secrets to a happy marriage:

  1. When your wife is craving tacos, you’re craving tacos. 😉
  2. A little thoughtfulness goes a long way.

Sure, my Diet Coke bottle was ordering me to share my drink with “Charles,” but {no offense to Charles} I’d rather be sipping my Diet Coke with Darrin while he cooks taco meat at the stove and I mash avocados into guacamole.

Now, who’s in the mood for some tacos?

p.s. The top I’m wearing is old from Nordstrom, but I’ve shared a few other awesome, embellished tops below! 🙂

    Darrin is such a thoughtful kid 🙂 I also crave tacos…probably more than any human should. Also, your outfit is AH-MAZING. LOVE YOU!
