cooking = healing. at least to me.

it’s amazing how one day in the kitchen can revive me. make me feel whole, make me feel at peace.

the colors, the textures, the smells…it all helps. all makes me feel good. all makes me feel somewhat sane again.

the best part was that my little man turned 6. it felt like yesterday he was just 3. how time flies. how that little baby face tuned into a little man over night.

celebrations occur even in the middle of chaos. and sometimes you just need to stop and enjoy. smile, hug your loved ones and relax.

oh…and eat.
