Sunday Reflection’s…

I got a late start on my blog this morning… We ate out with great friends last night and we were up fairly late ⏰ But to my defense I did do several things outside this morning and I fixed breakfast for everyone. Last night we dined in Japan with sushi 🍣, Sake , edamame and rice 🍚

But this morning I went old school with Coffee Sliced tomatoes, eggs, and biscuits w/gravy. Like my grandma used to fix 😊 A world away from Japan 🇯🇵

Breakfast on Sunday morning is an institution around here!


It sure is nice catching up with good friends! Eating and visiting with friends is one of the great pleasures in life! 🙏🏻 And it’s always a blessing to have breakfast with my family on Sunday morning 🌞

“Eat at a local restaurant tonight. Get the cream sauce. Have a cold pint at 4 o’clock in a mostly empty bar. Go somewhere you’ve never been. Listen to someone you think may have nothing in common with you. Order the steak rare. Eat an oyster. Have a negroni. Have two. Be open to a world where you may not understand or agree with the person next to you, but have a drink with them anyways. Eat slowly. Tip your server. Check in on your friends. Check in on yourself. Enjoy the ride.”

~ Anthony Bourdain

Have a wonderful Sunday! 🙏🏻

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! I have been looking through pictures of this last week and really reflecting on all the good things that happened. There is and will always be bad things that happen in life, but I try to focus and reflect on the good ones… Business is good, our gardens are flourishing, and one of my oldest friends just got married to the girl of his dreams ❤️ I was his best man to boot 😊 Darn good week!

Thats my buddy Matt grinning from ear to ear 😊 They were just pronounced man & wife🥂
My bride looked beautiful as well!
The music was so beautiful! I had never heard a harpest play in person like this… WOW ❤️
I got to catch up with my brother Scott! We almost had a beard fight 🤣
Matt cut the cake with his Viking broadsword 🗡 What an Awesome day!

I LOVE outdoor weddings! And this one stole the show ❤️ Perfect weather, music, food, friends and family… Thats what its all about!

Congratulations Matt & Esther Brown!❤️

Understand, I’ll slip quietly
Away from the noisy crowd
When I see the pale
Stars rising, blooming over the oaks.
I’ll pursue solitary pathways
Through the pale twilit meadows,
With only this one dream:
You come too.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke
