Please indulge me a bit for being SO excited about my debut in my favorite decorating magazine! My backyard gardens were featured in the latest edition of Romantic Country & I am so very thrilled to be there among all the other talented homes & gardens featured in this gorgeous edition! Huge thanks to fifi & company for making the shoot so much fun & for Dan Mayers making my gardens really come to life on the pages of this beautiful magazine! I have never looked at magazine photos the same way since watching Dan & his assistant Chitzu work at taking just the right shots with lighting, staging etc. I so am honored to be included in this edition!
Okay...the white toast thingy.... Had the stomach bug from hell this past week. For the past two months I've been trying to shed the post knee surgery weight I gained & eliminated all white flour & sugar. I'm happy to say the weight fell off & in two months time I am down 20lbs & back into my small sizes once again (I gained 15 lbs after surgery) I am now so into whole grains & lean protein that I think it will just stick for life now (hopefully.) Okay..so the stomach bug hits & I can't even eat for the whole day after & when I do all I can think of is white toast (preferably wonder bread) with a smidge of butter & a giant gob of strawberry jam. It's all I want to eat & if I remember correctly...it's what our moms gave us whenever we were to sick to eat , along with a nice hot cup of tea. The thing I have sworn off of had become the one thing I wanted to feel better. I indulged & felt 90% better & even had a few servings throughout the day. I don't know if the memories of childhood & moms cures got to me or if the white toast was really a magical elixir. All I know is that I feel better & won't feel guilty if I indulge in a little white toast from now on!
From my home to yours....Have a wonderful & blessed Easter Holiday with family & friends! xo
Instead of an Easter bouquet~I leave you with an Easter bush! One of my favorites!
