Scrumptious, Delicious, Delightful...
These were some of the adjectives I heard last night while dining at the new little Italian restaurant that opened on the square.The downtown merchants, myself included, have anxiously awaited the opening of Cupini's Italian Restaurant.
Cupini's own two other restaurants in Kansas City, and now a third, north on the Historic Liberty Square. I have a feeling my daily grunge of yogurt and granola may be tossed aside. What a thrill to have such a great restaurant in our little downtown! I've talked about my town before.
What a wonderful evening. I not only indulged in yummy vegetable lasagna and chocolate mousse for desert, but enjoyed the warm company of my family, including my Dad and Brother.
I know I've probably bored you with my talk about my quaint little town before, but I have to tell you this.
Liberty is a suburb of Kansas City about twenty minutes north. It's population is about thirty-thousand, and not considered a large city, but not small either. I've mentioned how when I go to the grocery store, I always run into people I know. Last night at the restaurant was one of those times Liberty seemed even smaller.
As my family and I enter the restaurant, I immediately notice how many friends I know sitting at the tables. It was a little awkward at first. When was the last time you went to a restaurant where all your friends and neighbors are setting at the tables next to you? I guess if you live in a really small town, this would be an everyday occurrence, but a town my size?
After I sat, and visited with my family , I began to ponder this thought. I had one of those "Jill" moments... I started getting this warm comfy feeling, just like I felt while visiting with my family. It was like a episode of "Gilmore Girls." Then it hit me! Liberty is like Stars Hollow! Everyone does know everyone, and did the producers secretly come to our town before creating this show?
Well, it's most definitely things that make my little town fabulous to me!
Have A Stars Hollow Day!
Happily,Jill 00 (Two hugs are better than none)
