Blackberry Pie
Piece #2 - Breakfast

The year of 40 FABULOUS things began yesterday…and it F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! So much so, that at the end of the day, I wanted to curl up in bed and smile as I drifted off to sleep instead of sharing it here. So tonight I relive yesterday…

Today was filled with wonderful weather (a sunny and warm 48 balmy degrees in Seattle), an enjoyable adventure to Pike Place Market for some delicious Beecher’s “World’s Best” Mac and Cheese and lots of hugs and snuggles from my daughter. However, none of those make my “40 fabulous things” lists.

What makes the list is my mother’s homemade wild mountain blackberry pie. Flaky crust, tart blackberries, topped with whip cream. Every single bite was perfect.

And, it was perfect again for breakfast this morning!

It all begins tomorrow…

Today is my last day in the 30s decade. A new decade starts tomorrow. I have achieved a lot in the last decade. Who knows what the next decade has to offer. What I do know is the next year is dedicated to being F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S. That is how I choose to celebrate that milestone birthday – 40.

What does being FABULOUS mean? I am sure that varies by who you ask. I know what I mean by FABULOUS. I am taking care of me by enjoying 40 fabulous things over the next 365 days. In addition, I want to drink 40 fabulous glasses of wine. I want to eat 40 fabulous meals. So I should be busy at least 120 of the next 365 days (unless I double up some days).

I plan to share each FABULOUS adventure right here. A sort of public journal.  Please feel free to follow my adventure to celebrating 40 years as often as you wish.
