In this instant gratification world, I am guilty of expecting too much, too fast, for practically nothing! It’s easy to get carried away when I can get anything I want in less then an hours drive or have it shipped to me by next week.
Growing up this was not the case. We lived 45 minutes from the largest city and 20 minutes away from a grocery store. Our mail was delivered to the post office because in my mountain town the post office doesn’t deliver it to your door. Oh and most importantly… no cell phone reception or high speed internet. Dial-up was our only option and at the time it was considered fast!
Flash forward a few years and now I am connected to everything all the time! My iPhone has to be right next to me and I never turn it off for fear of… gasp… missing something!! I check my phone a bizillion times a day… no really I counted. ;)
It’s easy to forget that the best things take time to cultivate and perfect. This can be applied to everything: life, photography, wine and in this case pizza!
Now that we have a working kitchen we’ve been cooking up a storm and thanks to my awesome friend Brandi last night we made our own pizza!!! Our goat cheese, tomato, caramelized onion, mushroom pizza was AMAZING and could never compare to anything from the frozen section! It just really got me thinking, that in my overbooked, overwhelmed lifestyle, sometimes it’s better to disconnect for awhile. All this convenience doesn’t always translate to a better product or a better life.
