A Black and White Kind of Sunday.

So this was the first Sunday I had off before I started my new job and it ended up being a great Sunday. I woke up late, spent some quality time with my husband. Had a late breakfast (sort of lunch) consisting of cappucino and chocolate croissant with an old virtual friend (who was an old neighbor of my husband's from when they were both children). This girl and I have 'met' on Facebook about 5 years ago and a beautiful friendship had started. 5+ years later when I came back to my home country of Albania, I got the chance to meet here and she is just as lovely in person.

She also loved how I looked (as in what I was wearing and what I looked like in person.) I then came home, shopped at our local market for fruits & vegetables and I cooked a mean lunch, consisting of three courses (hence the photos of me sitting down by my cooking creations LOL). Among the cooking: a fresh salad (for which I am a specialist); I made my first-ever risotto and it came out nice, fried some eggplant and baby eggplants and made a chicken broth soup with chicken pieces in it, later for dinner. After we ate lunch I proceeded with some cleaning, doing laundry and washing dishes. I finished up the day reading a book.

I must say I had a beautiful Sunday and it was a beautiful day. The sun was out and the sky was clear even-though it was chilly. The cafe-bar we sat at is called "The White Rose" and I 'discovered' it in 2004 while in Tirana. To this day it remains one of my favorites. The outside part of it is gorgeous (as the two outdoors photos prove) and it will look even prettier come warm weather. I had a great time with my friend and a good day overall.

P.S. As you can tell this is pretty much a Black & White Outfit not just in its coloring but also as in the brand of White House Black Market. I worked there for over a year while I was in Michigan and it left a huge dent in my wallet, every month. LOL But I love their unique clothing and you can never go wrong with these two colors. =)
