Hooray! Today is the day. Here’s the story…
I was woken up this morning by the annoying beep of my cell phone informing me I had a new text message. It was from my mom: “Read Jenna’s blog!” (7:09 a.m.). So, I crawled out of bed and flipped open my laptop as quickly as possible. Within seconds I was reading the exciting news @ Eat Live Run. Jenna’s blog was one of the first food/health blogs I had discovered, leading the way to my current blogging obsession. Ever since that enlightening day in June, I have followed Jenna through her adventurous life, admiring every step of the way. Her big news today was not only motivational, but a sign that there was no reason to wait any longer (to start my own blog, that is). Jenna only has a few years on me, yet her list of accomplishments is astonishing. Her post today was the ulimate kick-in-the-butt, saying, “What are you waiting for, Hillary?” : )
I am so excited to have (finally) started this new dimension of my life. I can’t promise my life is as exciting as Jenna’s – spontaneously moving across the country, working at a beautiful Sonoma County winery, dining with Top Chefs, and attending fabulous food blogging conferences (yes, there is such a thing!) – but I hope you will find a bit of inspiration from my life’s journeys, as I live (eat) each day to its fullest!
Speaking of eating, the second thing I could hardly wait to do this morning was stir up a pot of my favorite breakfast…OATMEAL! Today’s version was perfectly simple and satisfying:
- 1 cup water
- 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 banana
- splash of soy milk
Well, I have a full Tuesday of classes ahead + my bi-monthly Nutrition & Food Science Association meeting this evening.
Thanks for reading!~ Hillary
