Be happy with what you have
and you will have plenty to be happy with.
I have discovered that I tread 'happy' with caution, fearful that if I get too comfortable with it the, 'other shoe will drop' so to speak. More superstitious than I would care to admit, I am hesitant to give it a shout out until well after the fact just to stay on the safe side.
So as I sat down this evening contemplating whether to explore the computer for images to finally (as in FIN.A.LLY) wrap up the 2016 photo book, OR, take the shorter bus and simply pick one or two suitable photos to pop up on instagram, I was amused at the number of images I had dealing with cooking or food.
I had forgotten all the happy foods of 2016.
New recipes, destinations, or fun outings with family and friends.
The fun breakfast at The Greenbrier with my husband, brother and sister-in-law. The food was good - getting away for a weekend to break from the winter humdrum was even better.
Tea time at Intercontinental Park Lane in London, UK.
One lump or two?
or perhaps latte?
Or there was the time we had delicious calamari at Brio Tuscan Grille at Tyson's Corner - celebrating our 'actual' anniversary.
And there was time time we went to the local flea market to find items for our son's first apartment and found these beauties in the farmers' market portion. 'Tie-dyed tomatoes'.
We've had fun and enjoyed trying different meals with Blue Apron
(but have put it on hold for a little while until I can get caught up with things).
and Disney treats -
