This months theme over on I Heart Faces is Enjoying Life. The picture below isn’t some fabulous work of art with beautiful back lighting and perfect technical execution, but I could not think of a photo that means more to me. This is my amazing grandma, enjoying life, completely. It may sound a little silly to some, but Krispy Kreme doughnuts is kind of a big deal to her. She doesn’t have any local to her in Southwest Florida, so when on vacation in South Carolina, we went out of our way to get her to the one place she wanted to visit. I am pretty sure that it’s the happiest I’ve seen her in a long time! She splurged on a new coffee mug, and had not one, but TWO, hot and fresh doughnuts while we were there, and of course had to bring home enough to last the rest of our trip! This picture now hangs as a 20×30 mounted print (and even larger frame!) in my kitchen. It’s really become the focal point of my home and I believe this picture will become a treasured family heirloom.
I think we could all learn a lesson from my grandma. It really is the little things in life that make life worth living. Family, friends, adventures and doughnuts… especially doughnuts!
