I like to take note whenever I try something new. Even if it’s something as small as trying a new food, that’s one more experience under my belt. Here are a couple things I tried for the first time this past week:
I bought flowers for myself – Chris is good at getting me flowers for special occasions — and sometimes just for a nice surprise — but I’d never bought a bouquet of flowers for myself. This pretty bouquet was $1 on manager’s special, so I snatched it up! I don’t think there’s a more cheery way to liven up our apartment than fresh flowers.
I made from-scratch mojitos – I made this pitcher of mojitos on Saturday totally from scratch! I’ve had mojitos before, but have never made them myself. I boiled my own simple syrup and used fresh mint leaves that I’m growing. They were delicious!
I waded in the creek in a dress – I’ve waded in creeks before (not too much though), but I hadn’t ever waded while wearing a dress. I felt like Anne of Green Gables or Laura Ingles Wilder. It was fun!
Have you tried anything new lately — big or small??
