What adventures and wondrous things life brings us at every turn and bend in our journey. It has been some time since I have had the time to sit down and write a blog post. It is because 6 days a week I am working on my life's work in and out of the kitchen. These are moments that have been a long time in the making and it feels like I am on the podium in the olympics of my life as a chef.
Although my days are very busy, at the same time I am taking time to notice the little things. Since I work a very full day at the coffee shop now, I find that I really savor time with my dear sweet family and friends all the more. I even am taking time to really be in the moment while doing chores such as watering the flowers, noticing their colors and delicate petals. I take extra pride in doing a few chores at home after work at the shop because I have fallen in love with my home again as well. I realize how very fortunate we are to have such a lovely home and garden I relish in taking good care of it for all of us.
My dear husband and son are so very sweet and supportive, coming by on Saturdays to the shop to visit. Lots of friends and family have come by for brunch or pastries too! I feel so very honored by their presence. I want to look at each moment in life and hold it next to my heart because that is what life is about. Not the next step, not 5 years from now, but NOW.
I know that I have always worked very hard and I love working, but I feel that now that I have a set schedule I realize how important each moment is to be thankful for what we have and what is right there in front of us. I have everything I need. I am blessed by the love of family, friends, food and beauty all around me.
In this moment I feel that the universe has given me all that I have ever dreamt about. Exact things are coming true off of my vision boards- the coffee shop, the community, the love and support- it is all coming together! Everything that I have written down in detail is beginning to unfold like a delicate flower opening in the springtime.
This is a moment of enormous beauty and I don't want to miss a single second, relishing in each step. There are many wonderful things happening that I will go into more detail about very soon, but as a coffeeshop and community we are coming together as one to create something amazing! We already have everything we need!
I'd love to hear about times where you knew everything was coming together for you, or times when you have wanted to savor every moment.
With lots of care and love,
