Naturally Beautiful Moments
My life (and stomach) is filled with beautiful food. It also is filled with beautiful moments. I truly think that living a healthy life MUST include an appreciation for those moments that make you pause and think "Damn, I'm lucky!" Here are a few of mine.
A beautiful lunch with my family on a saturday afternoon
It is moments like this one that make the trials, tribulations and challenges of motherhood worth it.
A friend gave me this little green pumpkin from her garden a week or so ago, saying she didn't have the heart to throw it out when I might be able to find something to do with it. I have been slowly watching it turn from green to yellow (and then hopefully orange) on my counter. I really appriciated my friend's simple gesture in a bigger way than I am sure she expected.
Do I really need to caption why I love this moment? No, I didn't think so.
