I’ve been wanting to write up a post since the weekend, but I just haven’t been motivated to do so. To be honest, I’m not even sure exactly what I want to write about today.
I had a birthday recently, which I spent eating out with my family and visiting a new local produce shop. I enjoyed my Bob Evans breakfast of pancakes and eggs, and absolutely loved finding so much produce at amazing prices. I will deffinitely be stopping in there more often.
I ended up picking up 4 lbs of strawberries, tons of kiwis, some nectarines, a giant bag of spinach leaves, giant bag of green beans, and a few other things that I’ve been snacking on and enjoying since. I have learned I love diced prunes and raw green breans. I am liking that I can reach in the fridge and grab a few green beans to snack on, over grabbing a bag of chips.
Not only did this produce place have tons of enticing fruits and vegetables, but I also spotted huge cactus leaves and the largest alovera stems (or leaves?) that I have ever seen. I didn’t even know these things were sold in this manner!
Aside from my fun produce day, we also went to the movie theater to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales this week. I kind of adore these swashbuckling pirate tales, so when I heard there was a new one coming out, I couldn’t wait to see it! It was good, but not quite as good as the previous films in this saga. I now have the desire to marathon watch all the previous Pirates of the Caribbean movies, which may just happen sometime soon!
During this family outing to the movie theater, we found ourselves in the car getting ready to head to dinner as my husband surprised me by “just needing to kiss” me in that moment. This was followed by my oldest daugher’s excitement at the song that started playing on the radio, while my youngest daughter was peeking at me through the seat and headrest. I have to say, that very moment will dance around in my thoughts for some time. I couldn’t help but to smile at how blessed I am. Quite the inspiration to remember to live in the moment as much as possible.
