Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, October 14, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Loving these baby mushrooms I found growing in the back yard (they look poisonous but they were fun to photograph)...

Loving Golden Book classics and Daddy's that read to their wee girls...

Loving being inspired to make fun food...

Loving Pinterest...

Loved taking my girl on a date.  Also loving the fact that she is rather sentimental about going to the same old tea rooms (that badly need a makeover and slightly remind me of a dungeon) that my mother, grandmother and great grandmother used to visit in their younger years.  I did try to tempt her with going to a more modern cafe, but nooooo, Tiffany's it had to be!

Loved making my 'use what's in the cupboard' version of Meghan's Muesli bars.  Sooo good and really easy.  I used walnuts, oats, almonds, coconut and chocolate chips.  Loving the fact that no butter or flour is involved either.

    that is so lovely that you can go to a place with your little girl that has so much family history, i love it.

  11. I like your pinterest choices and that you have a sentimental little one - sentimental is cool, although it means you end up keeping a lot of stuff in my case!
