The simpler side of life….. +Pretty in Pink..
Sometimes, our world is so complicated, busy and one might stop to wonder if the joy of the moment is really cherished at all or is it the busyness that we cherish most.
I saw a quote and fondly place it here….
“One of the greatest titles we can have is “old friend”. We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older. The problem is we need to start our old friendships when we are young. We then have to nurture and grow those friendships over our middle age when a busy life and changing geographies can cause us to neglect those friends. Today is the day to invest in those people we hope will call us ‘old friend” in the years to come.” ∫unknown
Even when you live next door, it can become difficult to find time to enjoy the company of someone or spend some quality time. So it just magically all came together, impromptu, everyone was available and we just pulled a bunch of food together had a cool new wine to try and a wine tasting to plan for November…. So we just did it.
Here are some images from our social around food and wine…. We had a delightful time, shared stories and caught up on one another’s lives.
Various cheeses…but by far the most popular was Lemon Zest Cheese..yummy
Lime & Cilantro Shrimp
I made a light little dessert of crushed Pistachios layered on bottom, then mascarpone cream, fresh blue berries, topped with strawberry and mint… put them in refrigerator and topped with a dark chocolate almond Bark … served chilled and so easy!
I don’t know where time goes sometimes, but it does disappear quickly… the best I can offer is to capture these slices of life as little memory jogger to slow down and spend a moment in the moment.
Short and Sweet….. as always, many more images in the slide show…kick back or multi-task while you watch them flicker by…. Enjoy and Share!
