What in your life consistently brings you joy? Food makes me happy. Not just eating it, but preparing it, shopping for it and reading recipes in cookbook after cookbook too. I like imagining what things will taste like. I like the way beautiful food looks on my plate just before I take my first bite. I love trying new things and branching out to new flavors.
A perfect tomato is a work of art. The smell of freshly baked bread is dreamy. I can always count on a trip to the farmer’s market or an afternoon spent baking for a Mountain High Moment. A moment where happiness reigns, my spirits seem to be a mountain high and all seems right in the world.
I know that while there are people who get the same pleasure from food as I do, there are just as many who would happily never enter their kitchen, grocery store, or farmer’s market again and that is okay. I may not agree but I know it is possible. I’m sure they have something that brings them Mountain High Moments too. Maybe a hike sends their spirit soaring. It’s possible crafting a beautiful quilt or hitting a home run.
My most recent Mountain High Moment found me in my new kitchen making a surprise breakfast for my family. The early morning light shined through my lovely kitchen windows and while I mixed the batter and readied the waffle maker I felt so uplifted and at piece. No matter what bumps I have as a parent food always brings my family together. That morning we shared a breakfast of waffles, eggs, bacon and love. It was just what my heart needed. I felt a full Mountain high. The frustrations of the day before vanished with the sunrise and armed with a pile of fresh waffles and toppings ranging from peanut butter to maple syrup to yoghurt and berries we spent the morning smiling, laughing and loving each other.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mountain High Yoghurt. I received a gift card to purchase yogurt, a product kit, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
