Today was so lovely. It was sunny, with a very brisk, chilly wind, and the perfect day for a white chocolate, raspberry café mocha. Yes, I know. It’s only about a million calories but, once in a while? Hey, a gal has to enjoy some pampering now and then.
I was just walking by The Coffee Place after running errands and the temptation was just too great! I caved in and walked in to see this – an invitation to a little piece of heaven!
Normally, this place is packed, but it was 4 p.m. and most people are thinking about dinner, not coffee. But not me –
While I waited for my delicious decadence in a cup, I started taking pictures like crazy. I’ve made it a habit now never to leave home without a camera (and, no, I don’t have a fancy cell phone camera.)
It’s very cozy…
But none of this, thanks!
I was so happy when my steaming cup of goodness was in hand that I literally forgot to take a picture of it.
So, close your eyes and imagine a steaming cup of delicious coffee with raspberry and chocolate and NO calories – just for today! Now, enjoy…
“It is a fine seasoning for joy to think of those we love.”
Since I began posting on this blog for the first time New Year’s Eve 2013, my intention then was to achieve a new perspective on life, one based on appreciation of the little things, the overlooked things, the things I take for granted.
Now, with the help of my camera, I see shadows as beautiful, upside-down viewpoints as intriguing, and exquisite beauty in simplicity – as in these salt and pepper shakers.
Once filled with delicious honey, they have been put to yet more service providing the finishing touches to many a delicious meal.
This photo of these recycled honey jars is now part of a beautiful memory of a meal shared in the home of family.
Salt and pepper season our meals. Love seasons our lives.
