Granola and Berries (Gluten Free option)






I think Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I love when I add berries to what I am eating. It brings me so much joy to see all the beautiful colors plus I love berries and the added nutrition they add to the meal. Yum! Enjoy a great way to start your day.  It also makes a wonderful snack. 


It is wonderful to be enjoying Summer and all the fun that goes along with it. We had a wonderful family reunion with 90 of us. We love our family. It is so nice to have so many people that love you and are their to support you. I also can't get enough of this sunshine and blue sky. I love the warm nights with the slight breeze. I think that is what it will be like in heaven.
