What makes us smile – west coast winter edition

Nothing beats the fresh winter fruit in Northern California.  I don’t even know what you call that stuff I ate while growing up in Saskatchewan?!  This household loves our fruit, so what’s better than picking it straight from the tree?

My latest obsession is the chocolate, caramel, sea salt and coffee combo and it doesn’t have to be in that specific order!   Ahhhh…all is ok in my world when I have a Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha in my hand or a helping of Talenti Sea Salt Caramel Gelato or nibble on some Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels or…maybe you have one that I haven’t tried?  I am VERY open to suggestions!

So I’m going to be honest.  I don’t always smile at the idea of school breaks.  Come on, cut me some slack.  I’m a stay at home mom of some pretty intense boys.   But I recently read that a baby smiles between fifty and seventy times a day, and a toddler approximately six hundred times.   And the question was asked “What has robbed us of our smile?”  And with that I decided I was going to work hard each day at bringing smiles to the faces of my boys and in return I was going to LOVE this Christmas break.
