Don't you just love the possibilities a new beginning brings? Beginnings give us a chance to try something new, get rid of things that don't work anymore, and stretch ourselves in new ways. Savored joy is that new beginning for me.
While the concept has been something I've been developing since we closed our bakery Petit Sweets 13 years ago, recently I've felt my world changing as I know it. You see, I have a high school senior who is anticipating his own new beginnings as I type this. Yes, there is still one more at home (he'll be a high school freshman next year- more beginnings!); however I sense my role changing rapidly. This transition is bittersweet, but I can feel that it is time for all of us to stretch our wings a bit and try the new on for size. The time to begin is now. Savored Joy is all about the joys we find in life from the simple, such as a delicious home-cooked meal, to the more elaborate, like a dream vacation, and everything in between. I hope you'll join me in this new beginning and stretch your wings along with me.
And since new beginnings are the perfect time for a beautiful, delicious, healthy new recipe, here's one for you to try. I hope it fuels your body as you begin the new!
