A Gift That Gives Back

Name two of the best things that can happen to you before 12 a.m.

If you said have a Thai brunch made for you to eat with friends then getting a huge gift you are correct!

I love being home again and being able to spend more time with the friends I have missed so much. Over brunch at my friend’s house she gave me an easel and paints she’d had for a while and never used.

With the gift that she has given me, I decided to give her a few paintings in return. At the end of the summer she with be leaving for college, so these will be a combination of a thank you/going away/graduation gift. I’ve only finished one so far.

Since this is a food blog as well as an art blog I have to throw these pictures in.

Good Morning

I have just ended a weekend spent in Tampa with some of my favorite people. Every morning I woke up to the sun rising over the beach.

The bulk of the weekend was spent in fellowship with my sisters in Christ and the rest was spent with wonderful food.

We spent the first night there in search of dinner on the crazy Tampa highways. During our hour-long fight against traffic ourcar spotted a Whole Foods store to our right.

We were pretty stoked.

We returned the next day and spent a few hours shopping and sampling in the grocery store. That is where I purchased this super great organic tea. And as the label promises, it made me feel like Zeus.

The most exciting part of the weekend also occurred on our first night there. My sister and a friend of mine spotted a familiar looking man getting off the elevator in our hotel lobby. He pasted by me and said hello. He even sounded familiar.

Then things in my sister’s mind clicked, “He’s that one guy, from all those movies!”

I approached him asking if he was an actor, he was indeed the Larry Miller. He was really nice and talked to us for a small amount of time.

You may recognize him from Pretty Woman, 10 Things I Hate About You, Nutty  Professor, Princess Diaries, Seinfeld, For Your Consideration and a ton more shows and movies.
