Tonight I am making a toast for you and me...

After three years this blog has become my map and my point of reference to my daily life. Because when I ask myself what did we do last year during the holidays and my answer was I need to look it up on the blog for a hint... it means this space has become pretty important. This is my virtual journal and it includes the many highs and the many lows... And among these entries there are many beautiful places, people and things I've seen and this year is coming to an end. 

I am so thankful for yesterday's feast. The potato salad and the ham. The sweet rolls and the margaritas. For the children that were playing and the adults that gather around the kitchen counter. For the after movie theater outing with three girls that were beautiful and funny. 

After all is said and done... 
After I have finished putting all the Tupperware away what I am most thankful for is... Time. Because I would be nothing without all these moments, people and places...

Then the night fell and his face was so close to mine and he said... You are just so sweet.
I smiled with my eyes the same way I have done since I was five and I kissed him... 
With my eyes shut I kissed him thinking about the word... Sweet. 

At that moment I felt like vowing to always be sweet but then I thought about boundaries... Thresholds...Thin lines between things and I knew at times we need the spicy just not sweet.

Otherwise he would never have the need to get close to my face and reassure me that... 
I am sweet.
