Sometimes it is okay to take a step back and realize you were being ridiculous.

Sometimes taking a step back to see the blessings present in your life is the only option. A necessity.

If the only thing that you have accomplished that day is breathing, that my friend is a job well done, you did it. Now, move on or you will go no where.

There are times the prettiest thing you can wear is a smile.

Actions are more powerful than words, so save the hot air and just smile.

Then you realize that your elders are the key to the future and Theodor Roosevelt was on to something when he said nothing worth having was ever achieved without effort.

So just laugh when you can.

Cry when you need.

Apologize when you should.

And let go of what you can't change.

I spent the afternoon getting to know a new friend as we slowly made bagels and tended her cute kids. Mine were baked with poppy seeds and she chose to melt butter over hot bagels and dust with cinnamon and sugar.

I was inspired by this woman and used this recipe Peter Reinhart's Bagel recipe from the LA Times.

Thank you to all our wonderful friends who have taken the time to be part of our life right now. It means so much to us.

  1. Wish I could have one of those right now :)

    1. It is lunch time!

      I made a sandwich using them two nights in a row. Tonight I am going to turn them into pizza bagels....

      Now you are really hungry!
