I can now say that if I died today, I would die happy. Let that not be a morbid statement. That is a statement full of…JOY!
I’m about to namedrop like nobody’s business. I met Joy the Baker. I spoke to Joy the Baker. And yes, I know her real name is not Joy the Baker. IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHO JOY THE BAKER IS, YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK. Your life is sad. Get some Joy in your life. Now.
There are so many things to be thankful for every single day. At this time of year we start to think more about what matters, who we love, who we haven’t told we love. Tell someone you love them! Even if you don’t know them. Even if you do know them, and they don’t know you. I just did that! I know Joy! Does she know me? In my head, yes. I told her I loved her! Is that weird? Who cares.
Joy wrote in my cookbook. Well, her cookbook. That I own. It’s a beautiful cookbook. Newest prized possession.
In short, life is now complete. December 9 should last forever. I think I’ll mark this day in my calendar and celebrate the anniversary of this momentous occasion forever.
More wonderfulness (and a hockey elbow pad serendipitously placed in the background):
Also, if you were wondering where this happiest moment of my life occurred, it was at the Eat Boutique, which is basically the best thing ever. I managed to pick up some Coffee Syrup (yup, heaven does exist), sample approximately 83 different types of granola (and finally decide to buy some), caramels, ice cream, popsicles, and get a free cup of drip-brewed coffee from a wonderful person named Alessandro who should totally be my new best friend (um).
Oh by the way, here’s a picture of food if that’s what you came looking for. Obviously it’s one of Joy’s recipes, created with love. It’s name is Honey Almond Butter Chocolate Tart and it is not healthy but do we really care?! EnJOY it!
I LOVE EVERYONE ❤ 🙂
