a person or thing regarded with special favor or preference

When my kids do or say something especially endearing or flattering towards me, I say to them...

You are my favorite!

I can't explain why, but they love it when they are my favorite.  

It's a win/win for me because both my kids have sailed through childhood knowing that they are my favorite.  

Occasionally a friend earns favorite status which does not go over too well with my offspring.

Chelsea is my favorite today because she is home for Spring Break and made us a fabulous dinner!

Home made tortillas.

Chelsea waved her magic cooking wand and turned the tortillas into fabulous chicken enchiladas.  Refried beans, mexican rice and salad were served on the side. Delicious!

You are my
and Dad's too...

Chelsea also has a cooking blog.
Click below to see what she's been up to, I'm sure you'll be impressed!

Tread to Treasure

Running is a little like the famous line from Forrest Gump.
It's a box of chocolates.  You never know what you're going to get.

It's also a place I haven't been for six weeks.  Yesterday morning found me suited up and ready to go.  I wasn't expecting much and planned the shortest route possible.

Guess what...
It was really fun!

For some of you running and fun should not be in the same sentence.  Think about something you do that isn't always fun but good for you.   Have you ever come back from a walk, run, the gym etc. and wished you hadn't done the work out?
No, never. 
Whether it was a great or not so great work out you did it. That always feels good!

For a junk dealer like me running past these great old barns makes me drool...
 Yesterday after my run I got to go in this building and do a little picking...

This adorable and perfectly rusty, crusty vintage cart was a favorite treasure scavenged from the picking adventure...

Suit up and get out there.  You never know what you're going to get but I bet it will be something really good!
