I had a long, tiring and perhaps tough week. I came home tonight a little bit cranky, worn out and just generally feeling less than happy. All my excitement and energy throughout the week had evaporated. But all that changed when I walked in the door tonight.
My wonderful partner Jen, who patiently models for me all the time and pays attention when I endlessly spew all sorts of photography jargon, surprised me with the most amazing meal tonight.
We cracked a bottle of wine and enjoyed the most wonderful meal I have tasted in a long time. I think it took me forty minutes to consume a single plateful - I didn't want it to end. I wanted to eat it as mindfully as possible, savouring every last bite.
My mood went from dull to happy, my energy from low to bubbly.
Thanks Jen, you made my night.
