Let me start out by saying that Nate is in the process of a photo shoot in downtown Denver right now, and therefore the laptop with the editing software and the card reader that I typically use are not with me right now. Why is this important? Because this will be one of (if not the only) post I’ve posted on here with completely raw, untouched photos.
I apologize in advance 🙂
So let’s see here…today has been pretty slow, and actually not a lot of fun because my allergies (that I didn’t even know I had) are kicking my butt. My throat just has this constant tickle and coughing doesn’t help. Anyway, lunch was a big bowl filled with romaine, carrots, the rest of my oven-roasted potato cubes from Sunday night, and about 1.5 Tbsp of balsamic vinaigrette:
It was a great combo! I served the potatoes cold, but they were great and added a little bit of guilt-free richness to the salad. I also snacked on the Kashi version of Triscuits (about 1.5 servings) to get a little grainy crunch action. Dessert? Dessert was an unpictured tablespoon of the amazing disease-curing almond butter. There were no clean spoons so I ate it with the blade of a butter knife. It’s THAT good.
I love that the people I work with automatically associate me with baking now! A sweet woman in our office brought this by for me today, stating that she doesn’t bake and therefore wouldn’t make them:
Be still my heart! Nate walked up and goes, “What is that?!” GASP!!! How is it that my poor husband is so deprived that he doesn’t even recognize a box of Cafe du Monde beignet mix?! Well, mark my words, he’ll know exactly what these are come Saturday morning 🙂 Now if only I could figure out where I put that powdered sugar…
I was going through Angela’s “A Year Can Change a Lot” series, and once I reached Part 9 was really struck by something she wrote. She said when she stopped figuring money into the equation was when she was really able to pinpoint the answers in her search for happiness in her career. I think that no matter what this is a great exercise to do, so here goes!
If money were not an option, I would:
- Travel through Europe
- Write about life, recipes, and the way they intertwine
- Blog, blog, blog
- Help my husband start up a photography business (because I love taking pictures of weddings and people!!!)
- Do something ground-breaking to inspire women to find what makes them happy and overcome what does not make them happy
What about you? If money was not an issue, what would you do? It doesn’t have to be anything huge, and it doesn’t have to be a long list. Just think about what you love that’s being restricted by the monetary quotient!
