We don't stop playing because we grow old, 
we grow old because we stop playing.

So, taking advantage of the Florida Resident discount pass we bought last year . . . .
we are off to the "happiest place on earth" for a few days.

salad fixins

My sister-in-law, Tracy, gave us a package of Salad Fixins from Sam's Club. 
Our salads have never been the same . . . 

It contained: 
Sesame Sticks, Raw Sunflower Seeds, 
Slivered Almonds, Cranberries, and Pepitas.

We have begun making our own and never serve a salad without it.

Ours contains: 
Whole Wheat Sesame Sticks, Sunflower Seeds, Sliced Almonds, 
Dried Cranberries, Pepitas, and Dried Edamame Beans.

Mixed and ready to go.

You could make your own by combining any of your favorite healthy snacks. 

I guarantee it will make every ordinary salad into a gourmet feast.

the blessings of friends

At the beginning of this new year I have been reflecting on
what a blessing it is to have such dear friends.

Looking back over the years I marvel at the variety
of places where we have met new friends.

We are so fortunate that our lives have
crossed paths with such amazing people.

hometowns, family, bowling, biking, traveling, in-laws, retirement
