It's the Little Things

There are about a million reasons why I love Juarez, but most of them are little things.

It's a cold, rainy night here with snow in the upcoming forecast. After a long night of YouTube and karaoke and Tecates, my husband and I were ready to grub. And so we walked with umbrellas to the closest street vendor. As we waited for our food, we listened to Everclear (yes, that Everclear) which is the CD the vendor was listening to. He grilled our burgers on a charcoal grill and topped them with onions, tomatoes and jalapenos that he had roasted and sliced right in front of us. $3.57 US. If the price and deliciousness wasn't enticing enough, there was the fact that I am legally out and about with my best friend. I don't care where we are. It's yummy.

Okay... so maybe the picture doesn't look that amazing. But hey, it's almost 11 o'clock, and life sure feels amazing.


  1. This just made me happy. :) Thanks!

  2. Amen to that! Having them by our side makes it all good, no matter where.

  3. I love your optimism Emily. You sure sound happy to me. And that burger looks damn good to me :)

  4. It's way past my bedtime and I am seriously craving a hamburger! :P

    And yes, it is the little things that make us happiest. :)

  5. :) That's the one thing I feel like I "miss out on" being here in Mexico. So much street food available but I'm a vegetarian so everything's pretty limited.
