“Just This Moment” is intended to be a collection of those small moments in which you are truly present in your life - at just that moment. The images may not be frame-worthy, but are moments that fill you with joy, allow you to experience a moment of gratitude, make you smile, touch your heart, and/or make your soul sing. I encourage you to share your “moment” here with me, but I will get us started with this…
DISCLAIMER: No carbs were harmed in the making of this photo.
Yes. You are looking at a full fledged, top quality, no calories spared Panna cotta with berries dessert I enjoyed while dining alfresco at Naumachia restaurant earlier this month. We had just completed an eleven hour flight and checked into our hotel. We went looking for a place to enjoy a meal and wandered into Naumachia because it was a couple of blocks from our hotel. They must have recognized some weary travelers because they ushered us to the best table in the house and plied us with delicious food. (Truthfully, I don’t think there is any food in Rome -perhaps all of Italy, that isn’t delicious; but, that’s my bias.)
I don’t often indulge in dessert, but as the warmth of the day turned to a cool evening breeze, and the sun went from golden to dusk, it seemed like a great way to celebrate the day and watch the flower vendor pack things up for the evening.
I feel pretty proud of myself that I remembered to snap this photo to share it with you before I dug in with gusto. When I tasted this little beauty, I almost squealed with joy. Okay, maybe there might have been a little squealing. This, my friends, was a “Just This Moment…” for me.
