Scintilla 2013 | Day 6 | Food

Scintilla is a two-week storytelling adventure.  Each weekday for two weeks I will write a post based on the daily prompt.  Sign up and play along!

Prompt 6: Many of our fondest memories are associated with food. Describe a memorable experience that took place while preparing or eating food.




One of the things I didn’t realize about having kids was how eating would become a luxury.  Actually sitting and not getting up and eating the food at it’s intended temperature is rare.

I love breakfast.  It’s my favorite meal of the day.  What I look forward to when I go to bed at night.  Before children, I’d leisurely sip my coffee while eating my scrambled eggs at a normal pace, flipping through the newspaper.

Now, before I’ve had even a whiff of coffee I’m helping Kate into Ariel panties – no, wait, Belle panties – no, actually Hello Kitty panties while my coffee turns icy cold and my toast gets soggy.


So, on our trip to Sedona, I took my breakfast time seriously.  Dan and I gave ourselves plenty of time to slowly sip our coffee and took our time savoring delicious omelets.  While I loved the Grand Canyon and kissing giraffes and just soaking up time together on top of the red rocks, I loved those quiet, just the two of us with time to talk breakfasts.

    Breakfast ist my favorite meal of the day. Even though I don’t have kids, I don’t get to really enjoy it much during the week… I am glad you were able to enjoy a nice breakfast on your trip!

Hi! I’m Sarah, I am passionate about creating community, building deep connections, and the power of creativity. I live in Northern Virginia with my husband, our three kids, and our golden-lab mix.

I believe in leggings as pants, and I drink my coffee black. I love shopping at Costco, teaching group exercise classes, and, athleisure.
