Perfect Moment Monday -- Tree in a Cornfield

A tree in a cornfield.
Each week I participate in Perfect Moment Monday, sponsored by the blog, According to Lavender Luz, "Perfect Moment Monday" is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect Moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." And so, here is a Perfect Moment for this week.

Over the weekend the boys all went on a field trip to Hershey Park (Perfect). Before they left for the amusement park, they asked, "Will it smell like chocolate?" I can imagine how wonderful it would be if it did smell like chocolate. Can you gain weight by smelling calories??

Tom and I had the day to ourselves (Perfect), which we filled with a great workout, a delicious lunch in an Italian Pizza restaurant, reading out on our patio, and running on the Appalachian trail, a part that runs by several cornfields.

Having never run in a cornfield before, I stopped to look at the corn stalks (to confirm that they only grow one ear per stalk). In addition, I paused to do a yoga pose, Vrksasana (or Tree pose). Too bad my kids weren't there to say, "Mom!!! Really? Right here? Do you have to???"

The weather was beautiful, the run was so new and different...and it went by really fast (which is the sign of a good run). In short, it was perfect.
I confirmed that there is only one ear per stalk.

Enjoying lunch with my Sweetie in a delicious Italian Pizza restaurant. Perfect!
