These Are a Few of My Favorite Things


I’ve had it in my head to watch The Sound of Music very soon.  Maybe I’ll watch it with the Gabs.  She and I have had an amazing whirlwind week of fun and games.  I’d always wanted a boy, but she’s making me want to change my mind!

Eggs Benedict.  With a rich and runny egg, it starts the day off right with a bit of decadence, like the golden ambrosia of early morning.

and I’m here to tell you that there’s nothing wrong with a bit of dessert after breakfast–why not?  Warm Coffee Cake–da bomb paired with a bold french press… (video is written down in the books).

Our Tea Party complete with baby Red Velvet Cakes,  jammy-clad because that’s just how cool we are

Pretty little fishies.  They remind me of the ones that my Aunty had when I lived with her in Texas.

“Chocolate Milkshakes” –total fake out for finicky eaters: Unsweetened Almond (or Coconut) Milk, Unsweetened Cocoa, Crushed Ice, and a bit of Agave for a subtle hit of sweetness.

One even landed on my shirt but flew away before I could catch a shot.  One of the most beautiful things an adult ever told me when I was a kid?

“Just when the Caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a Butterfly.”

All of the other Hydrangeas had browned and sagged, but this little cluster still made it through!  (I wish I had a macro lens to capture all the water droplets).

After the week I’ve had, I thought this was too funny.

I hope that through ordinary life, you’re able to see the good, the happy, the great.  Bad news or not!
