Yesterday was my stepson’s 21st birthday. Time flies when you are having fun. I used to say that four turns into seven, seven turns into 11 and before you know it they are driving and moving out on their own. I never factored in how fast 21 would come.
I am so lucky because I know that he does not remember a time I was not in his life. He and I have been through a bunch together. There are parts of me that only he will understand all the way. He was there for it and he was a part of it. I am so grateful for him. Words and pictures could never describe what he means to me. I could not even put into words exactly how many dominoes he is responsible for in my life. I know this much, I would be nowhere near where I am now without him.
The POD sometimes has to take a bit of a back seat to life. Yesterday was one of those days. It was more important to be there and in the moment with family on his birthday. So yesterday became a quickie.
I do believe this Bloody Mary is a work of culinary art even if the picture is not.
