The land of milk and honey

milk-and-honeyIt’s silly really, but it made me smile.

First, I went to the bulk food store to buy Burke’s honey. (I’m no honey aficionado, but my husband swears it’s the best.) As I left the store I realized my milk supply at home was running low, so I slipped into the grocery store next door. While walking back to my car, I realized I was carrying nothing but milk and honey.

Sometimes simple moments of gratitude are the best. I basked in the luxury of living in the land of milk and honey.

It’s silly really, but it made me smile.
