Salt and Sparkle = Life Remarkable

  

Life can get pretty humdrum. And, it is not even a case of us letting it become that way; it sorta just slips up on us without point or notice.  We get swept away in the suds of a pile of laundry, or a rack of dirty dishes, and before we know it our lives seem flat. Routine. Colourless. They have lost their flavour and shine. And we wonder, will we ever get them back?


In essence when life gets like that all it really needs is a touch of seasoning - a little salt, and a pinch of sparkle to bring back colour, depth and joy.  It never fails to amaze me how the smallest amount of seasoning can change our perspectives from grey to Technicolor. The tiniest tweaks often have the greatest effect.  A little bit of seasoning, a little bit of shine … and things don't look so bad.  

And, the wonderful thing is that all life is extraordinary – whether we are all feelin’ it or not.  Life is full of surprises, and wonders that if we stop for a moment and let them, will literally take our breath away.   These moments for me are the 'salt and sparkle', the flavour, the seasoning, and the colour - the moments that we carry as memories.

With Spring dancing in front of our eyes; the world a light with new life and colour - I don't think could there be a better time to introduce you to Salt and Sparkle?

I hope my thoughts in words, pictures and recipes noted in this brand new blog will bring both salt and sparkle to your life.


There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies to bring a hint of sparkle to anyone’s day, so in this my first ever blog post, I feel it is only fitting that I share my favourite cookie recipe with you.  A recipe that yields perfect cookies every time – crunchy and chewy, and oh so chocolately all at once - Hope you enjoy them.

What a great day Saltandsparkle  has become a reality, no longer a dream!  I am excited and I hope you are too.  So let me welcome you here, to my new blog, thank you for stopping by, and tell you that, I really can't wait to get to know you.

That’s it for today, looking forward to hearing from you ...
