I’m dumb founded by what my 12 year old twin boys fight over. They could fight over who takes the front seat of our car to what the time is. They can never agree upon anything! I thought twins shared the same thoughts to saying the same words in a sentence. I think God is testing me to love my twin boys even more and truly admire their uniqueness, even though I feel like reining my wrath upon them.
My 11 year old daughter Grace is gracious and calm. I can see she is going to be a woman of success some day. She likes to break down things and understand how it came about, kind of like the way I think. My twins Thomas and William are natural born leaders, I think that’s why they fight a lot, because one doesn’t want to be the follower and rather the one that takes charge. My children are amazing, I love them so much.
Why do I describe their characteristics and personalities do you ask? It is funny you asked, because when I take them to a newly found and explored eatery my kids come together, stop arguing and analysing and they simply enjoy family time while I do the analysing and commenting. I think because of the school week and dad always working and me focusing on my multiple online businesses they can finally have time with the parents.
I see that eating out is not just about filling your stomach but really enjoying the time you have with your loved ones which really makes so much sense in this turbulent world called ‘life’.
I thought I’d add that first before I get to my food blog. I just wanted to highlight why it is so important to spend time with family and friends. Life is not to be lived alone, life is to be enjoyed with relationships. A ship unmanned is nothing without its crew. Which is why we need ‘relation-ships’. I wanted to play with my words there, I thought it would keep my blog light and funny… you’re probably rolling your eyes at me now.
If you are feeling low and life is not rolling in the direction you want to go, don’t say to your family or friends that you don’t have the time to hang out. Make time, and make an effort to catch up with them. Your belongings, your job, your hours dedicated to your work to climb that corporate ladder will mean nothing in the end when you don’t have friends or family to celebrate with. If you’re that workaholic who wants to be at the top of that corporate ladder you will find you will get paid a lot more and have a lot of nice material things, but ‘maaaaannn!’ how lonely is it at the top? Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in so long and connect, rekindle that fire you once had with people. Life will be full of joy when you share experiences together and it is best breaking bread together. So book a time at your favourite restaurant or that really cute eatery place you’ve been willing to go to and share that experience with someone. I do that with my family every week and I’m truly the happiest mum and wife in the world.
I know you were expecting a food blog but I wanted to highlight the importance of food and I’m sure now that you know.
Go out there and experience food with someone you love.
