This is February and I am well on my way to attaining a goal I set for myself. I am trying to post every day with happiness and gratitude that I have encountered that day. There is always something no matter how small it may seem that we can be grateful for and even just a shared smile can make you happy if only for a moment. Please try to find those moments for yourself too… if you’re up to it I would love if you would share them too in the comments or your own blog. Being aware can really turn a day around!
My boyfriend and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and take a short drive tonight. We drove about 20 miles south to find the closest town that had an Outback Steakhouse. We had received a gift card for Christmas but had yet to use it since it is not in town. So we drove south and had a wonderful filling meal. The nice thing too is that it is the same town where my daughter works at the coffee shop so we stopped after dinner to see her and get a drink for the trip back.
I was happy we could make the trip without worrying about the weather this time of year. And grateful for my boyfriend’s mom who gave us the gift card to use in the first place. It was good food and good company and a special treat afterwards. Do you have a restaurant you will go out of your way for on occasion for a special treat?
