Do you ever stop and look around to realize that you are one of the luckiest people in the world? I had an ah-ha moment like such yesterday. Overall, Sunday was pretty uneventful and consisted of breakfast, gym, and scrapbooking. Hubs decided around four o'clock that we should make a “fancy” meal for dinner and volunteered to go to the store since I was knee deep in paper and glue. We made Chicken Saltimbocca and Risotto (both excellent and both from Giada). This is probably the best meal we make, my favorite for sure. Hubs was in charge of the Chicken, me the Risotto. We also had Caesar Salad. While we cooked, we each had a drink in hand, listening to music and dancing in the kitchen. Fitz even got in on the action and started jumping around. Cooking was actually more fun than eating.
After we cooked, we sat on the balcony to enjoy the feast. It was a cloudy night so it wasn’t scorching hot. Since the sky was pretty cloudy, the sunset created a pink glow over the clouds that cause the most amazing colored sunset--another reason to love living on the west coast (of Florida). As we were finished eating, I was staring off the balcony and I actually started to cry. I have an amazing husband that will not only go to the grocery store for food but will cook part of the meal and have fun while doing it. I live in an amazing place and I have the best Boston Terrier ever (sorry if you have one too, but he is!) I have awesome family and friends that support me in all I do. Sometimes it just hits me, how much I have. It’s the small things that matter----not your job or how much money is in the bank. Lucky! That is the word of the day!

Here are some pics of just a few of the special people in my life...
