I think my biggest takeaway from this month was a greater appreciation for food...the flavors and the people who make it. Especially good food. I had forgotten how much I actually love to be in the kitchen! Seven forced me to plan my meals ahead and spend time preparing them. There is love that goes into food! My favorite meal was one night towards the end of Seven. I was so over this whole thing, a semi-emotional wreck, and I decided I just wasn’t going to eat, but then my dear brother David made me THE MOST AMAZING OMELET. Sure, it was seven-approved with just eggs, chicken, and beans, but there was something so delicious in someone else preparing for me just what I needed when I needed it, especially when I didn’t have the will to do it myself (and when he had been the biggest pain in my butt for the duration of the month).
This is just month one. Six more follow. Six more areas where Beth and I are reducing and rethinking and revamping life. It’s so good. We’re a week and a half into our Clothing month now...and I love it. More to come on that later :)
