I have a confession to make.
Even though I try to eat healthy, here lately my breakfast has become a special, solitary retreat, to indulge my craving for my new favorite snack: Kettle Popcorn & Fruit Tea.
I am embarrassed to admit it, but for the last 10 days straight I have eaten a small bag of the stuff every single morning!
I am addicted.
It's not just the taste of the sweet popcorn and fruity tea I enjoy, but also the routine of knowing I will get to relax and enjoy something I love, for 10 minutes or so.......
......in a quiet room.
First thing in the morning I pop my kettle popcorn and heat up my fruity tea and set at my desk to check my e-mail, my blog & facebook and what not before Felicity wakes up. It has become a morning ritual that I look forward to.
It's a morning date with myself.
Just me at my desk...... with the popcorn, the warm tea & some pretty fresh flowers from the yard.
As I enjoy my morning routing, I know my alone time will likely be interrupted before long.
Felicity will come running into the dinning room (where my desk is) and climb up in her booster seat ready for breakfast soon.
On this particular morning I wasn't fast enough with her breakfast so she just decided to climb up onto the table and try to eat a fake pear.
It's funny to me how the simplest little indulgence can become something to look forward to. I never would have thought that 10 minutes alone with a bowl of kettle popcorn and tea would be something I would lay in bed looking forward to - but I do.
As I'm sitting here savoring the last of the tea and kettle corn crumbs, I usually hear the sound of the bedroom door slowly creaking open.
It's funny because at first I think, "darn, my time is up", but then, the instant I see the beautiful little smiling face of my baby girl come prancing into the room I don't mind the interruption.
I'm happy and ready to start my day with her.
