Why was the blogger's breakfast cold?
Because it was pretty.
Today is New Year's Day and wanting to kick things off in a healthy way, I began to cook some old fashioned oatmeal for breakfast.
To make it especially yummy I assembled a small buffet of mix-ins: raisins, golden raisins, brown sugar ... But when I cracked open a walnut, I discovered this perfect heart.
And like any good blogger worth my weight in glitter, I was compelled to capture the moment. Away went the plain dish and paper napkin as I scurried to stage the impromptu shoot.
So the oatmeal grew a bit mushy as I zoomed-in on my unexpected valentine.
But breakfast still turned out delightful as this moment reminded me not to save favorite dishes and flatware for "special" occasions but to use them any time.
I wish all of us a New Year filled with good health, love and happiness, creativity and wonder!
