42-year old cheek pinching in Spain!

Tiny Adventures in Spain:  Today's tiny adventure in Spain was plaza hopping from restaurant to restaurant and getting my 42-year old cheeks pinched by an adorable Spanish Grandpa while enjoying a cafe con leche in the wine village.  Enlightening me that maturity wasn't my strong suit.  

I was ending the first week of February and decided it was time to reunite myself with the sliced duck and oranges tapa that made my heart sing at a dramatic Soprano pitch with every sweet and savory bite.  This tapa brought to perfection shared alongside a cold Spanish beer while sitting in the town center on this beautiful Sunday.   

Before this treat, I had myself a morning cafe con leche at another cafe in the plaza (or city center).  As I sat there and drank my coffee, a very adorable Spanish grandpa approached me and proceeded to grab my cheeks while pinching them and called me Guapa (pretty).  I cracked up!  42 years old and still getting my cheeks pinched.  I thought this was very sweet, and done in such a way that made me fall even more in love with Spaniards of all generations.  Just after having my 42-year old cheeks pinched something became glaringly apparent to me on this day.   I realized maturity was probably not in this Gringas forecast for the foreseeable future.  Ha-Ha!  I never understood the type of person who prides themselves on growing up so fast.  What for?  I couldn't imagine life any more exciting living it from the perspective of maturity!  Ha-ha.  

I came home to end this lovely day while sitting on a park bench in the front of my building.  I thought to just breath in life while taking in this incredibly inspiring view.  The only idea that came to me from here was "What a beautiful day and a wonderful life I have begun!"
