One Thousand Gifts {31-70}



I am obsessed with food.  I love to eat.  The last few weeks I have had some food aversions, so I've learned to appreciate food in a new light.  At the same time, I also challenged my self not to include so many food items in my list of Gifts this week.  Doing so helped me see the world beyond my dinner plate, and for that alone I am thankful.  I hope that this project will continue to help me re-view food.
