I was not going to blog today due to needing to get galleries out to clients but my day three experience on this journey was a good one.   I have a friend celebrating a birthday and I was a bummed that I was not going to be able to eat ice-cream, cake, or even lunch.  Now my boyfriend mentioned that part of a challenge is that it is actually a challenge. It is not always going to be easy.  I can still participate in birthday celebrations but I will be bringing my own lunch and ice cream.


    Moving Forward to dinner,  I made creamy cauliflower soup and an avocado and spouts sandwich. Yum!   I love soups so finding this recipe was fantastic.  I am sharing the recipe from my favorite blog. I did use the veggie broth.   I hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday.  I did not take pics today but I am adding the link and one of my images from my still life gallery.
