The open-face shrimp sandwich and gorgeous side salad were beyond good too. I wish I could just eat for a living. Will someone out there please pay me to do so? I mean, really, is that too much to ask? Thank you.

Mirror Challenge

I challenge you: Go find a mirror somewhere. Look at yourself. You’re beautiful–go ahead. As you’re looking, conjure up a couple of mental pictures of what you are holding in your life that absolutely brings you joy. What’s in your arms that provides delight? Then share your insight here.
