Whilst brainstorming, drafting and ultimately baking this recipe I found myself deep in thought. Usually I’m concerned about what I’m making. Asking myself what the next ingredient should be, if I should add a bit more or less than what I want. But galettes are something of a favorite of mine, so I make them often. Very often. Anyways, I found myself thinking about what I was thankful for and I think it’s one in the same as any other blogger… I’m thankful that I am able to share this with you.
I know most people have friends and family near and/or far, but my family reach places where internet is just a new phenomenon. My grandparents, for example, think an iPad or iPhone is a TV. Describing what a blog is to my uncle is a bit difficult and really, just impossible. Even a website. I’ve tried. I really have. Though I know it will be impossible for me to tell them what exactly I do on this blog of mine, so I showed them instead.
When I was in India last December, right before my grandfather passed, I sat down with both sets of my grandparents and showed them printed photos of some of my outfit posts. I printed out photos of my recipes with the recipe cards and it warmed my heart when they asked me to make something. Something innovative and just for them. And so I did. I went out to the markets, bartered, measured in grams and picked out the freshest and brightest produce.
I set a table, prepared what would be a table to shoot my photos, dressed up in my finest outfit, brought them around the table and showed them that this is what I do. Serve bits of happiness and creativity. So yes, I am thankful, so thankful, for being able to share what I do on my blog and in person. I hope I keep inspiring and I sure do hope you love my little virtual tree house.
