SMILE & SAY CHEESE!

CHEESE TRUCK

On my trip to work in NYC last week I ate my way all around the city. From Chinatown to uptown to those awesome Sabrett hot dogs from the street vendors. But the BEST thing I ate the entire trip counting the upscale delicious restaurants was this FOOD TRUCK on my way to shop on Fifth Avenue.

Interestingly called the MILK TRUCK.But there wasn’t milk there was CHEESE. The grilled cheese sandwich is the best i had in my lifetime!

If you visit Manhattan any time soon or this summer. YOU owe to yourself to not miss out. I should have taken a photo of it on my iphone.BUT I smelled it,bit into it and never stopped until all that was left was the parchment like wrapper.

WISH I WERE THERE…right now for another grilled cheese sandwich.

See you next month YUMMY cheesy Milk Truck!

Always in my Heart!

Peter Max kissed me!

Peter WJXT4

Today at the TV station I was doing a segment on all things Chocolate Beauty and having a Girls night In or a spa night with your sweetie.

While setting up my DIY yourself spa treats I heard a familiar voice over my shoulder. I have a GREAT memory for voices and accents too. It was a man with a northern accent. Being from NYC and NJ this accent warms my soul and reminds me of home.He asked me what was I doing and what were all the things. I was so focused on what I was doing I did not turn around but answered his questions. He told me he loves chocolate.

When I was all done…I tied my apron on and saw a familiar face to go with the voice.It was the next guest for the show had arrived and he too was waiting his turn. Then the camera crew started setting up some GORGEOUS,colorful paintings and it all came together to me. PETER MAX the world-renowned artist was in front of me!!!

Before I did anything else I put my hand on my heart and said I thought that was YOU and your soothing voice too”. He smiled and cupped my cheeks in his hands and kissed me! YES, he kissed me not once but bunches and with a happy smile on his face. Did I mind? NO, they came so quick and from a man who appeared so kind and romantic.

Something we definitely see in his artwork! I have always been a fan.

I asked if I could take a photo of him. He posed perfect and then he was up to go on set and be interviewed.

After his interview on his guest appearance/event at the Ponte Vedra Cultural Center he was ready to leave. The news crew had put my microphone on and I had to go LIVE in seconds.No time to say a proper goodbye.So across the studio on a commercial break I whispered with a loud voice…”Goodbye,Mr.Max”. He immediately turned around and blew me some air KISSES with his hands.

LOVE was and is in the air today and my ST. Valentine’s Day started in the most fabulous way!!!

There are ALL kinds of love.Husband and wife love,BFF love d the love of your family and children love. But this kind of stranger love winked at me today in its own special way. I embraced this life moment and happy I MADE HIM SMILE.

There is a beautiful saying I am not sure who said it and if I am completely writing it right.

“People may forget what you said,forget what you did but NEVER forget how you made them feel”

Peter Max made me feel fabulous and special today in his own quiet way!!! I only regret not having the time to take a photo with him today.

I may never wash my cheeks again.

Kiss! Kiss! Hope you are having a fabulous ST. Valentine’s day.

If you don’t know this man’s work that will color your life and world…

The little things in life!

Hampton lips

My hotel made me smile from the moment I arrived.

The smiling face at the front desk to greet me,the fresh out of the oven cookie to take to my room and then this. Oh Happy day! A set of his and hers cups too cute for days.

It is really about the little things that come our way throughout our day. Isn’t it?

Hampton Inn how did you know I LOVE all things cookies and lips!

PS

My stay was a few days ago and I still can’t get this out of my head.

The beauty of MOM!

I MISS MY MOM!

I miss her beautiful blue eyes.

I miss her face!

I miss the sound of her unique sweet voice.

I miss her hugs and kisses!

I miss how her face would light up when I entered the room.

I miss her crazy meal concoctions.She wasn’t a gourmet chef and no we were to poor to eat like the rich or sort of rich.She whipped up some amazing meals not amazing by taste.Amazing the way she made it happen and fed us every day in her own Polish-American way! Raising all her children alone after my father died.Taking good care of us.

I miss her style.

I miss her speaking to me in Polish.

I miss taking her out for breakfast,lunch dinner or coffee. She would have gotten a kick out of Starbucks,Tea shops and other cafes and coffee shops.

I miss the sound of her playing on her baby grand piano.

I miss her scent.

I miss the sound of her songs and musical voice.

I miss her smile!

I miss being and FEELING loved by her.

I can go on and on…

DO YOU MISS YOUR MOM? Share the beauty of your mom with me.I can’t wait to hear from you!

HAPPINESS~

It’s my middle name. I love to sprinkle happiness and a smile wherever I go.It feeds my soul, it makes me smile. Happiness until the day I die. I haven’t had much time to blog because I have been lost in day to day life and sprinkling happiness on life’s cupcake…One person at a time.

Tell me what you do to make people and you smile too?
