Mini Rasberry Trifle

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;


I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

                                                                          ~Robert Frost


Rasberry Trifle


As those words of the epic Robert Frost poem have whispered for almost a century, life is a journey.

A journey full of mountain tops so high that you think your heart will burst from the sheer exultation and joy of it.  A journey so low that at times the valley seems…..overwhelming.

But the ever-present constant is that…..around every bend is a new chapter in the story…..just waiting to be written.


Vintage Silver With Rasberries


A new year has started.

A new chapter in the story has begun.

And this year…..I chose joy.



Joy in the ordinary.

Joy in the simple… the every day.

Joy in the sweet taste of freshly picked raspberries and freshly whipped cream with sugar and the melt-in-your mouth crumbles of pound cake.

Delicious, wonderful, indescribable, irresistable, tantalizing joy….in every bite.
