Food is wonderful. It is a necessity yet can also be a luxury. There are many different delicious foods available all over the world. Many cultures and countries offer foods that are unique, serve more than the purpose of being eaten and are a part of their tradition. Culture is an important part of any country as it is how many can identify to where we belong ❤
Every person on our lovely planet is important. There are moments in our lives where we all need support. No person can go through life alone. Through the good and the bad, it is helpful to have someone else there for us. Words of encouragement to cheer us on when we are succeeding with the milestones of our goals, and words of comfort in the times of disappointment and heartbreak.
Food in a sense can be something people turn to, to make themselves feel better. Just like others can support us in times of need, food provides a beautiful comfort that can bring up certain memories. Cakes can remind us of certain celebrations in life, the common one is our birthday. Other related events could be a wedding, work celebration or a fun getaway with friends 🙂
There are many wonderful memories I have surrounding food. One was when my friends and I were going out for drinks (back in the days of clubbing when I was about 19 years old, even then I rarely went out. My friends always had to drag me out of the house to join them lol). It was past midnight and we were all hungry, then one of us noticed on the menu at the club, there was a 30 – 50 inch giant pizza for purchase (I cannot remember the exact size, but it was massive haha) 😀
We ordered it. There was about 10 of us and when it came out, our eyes widened as we turned into vultures and ate it, no sweat lol. A lot of laughter was amongst us during that time. It was the one and only time we got that pizza. This is an amazing memory as we all enjoyed it and found it extremely funny watching each other scoff down a giant piece of pizza. Friendships are beautiful, right? 🙂
What are your great memories with food? I have noticed that I cannot think of any times where I tried food alone and remember it. It seems that I can only remember the good times, when I was eating with others. Holidays are definitely wonderful times that I have a ton of beautiful memories with family and friends. Easter and Christmas being the biggest times to celebrate each year. Quality time with other people is important for connection and creating lovely memories ❤
Whenever I go back to New Zealand. During the Christmas holidays, time is spent with family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It is Christmas night that I spend time with friends, catching up. Although, over the years, the friends part has been adjusted as it is difficult to catch up with people in New Zealand since I have lived in Australia for nearly seven years now (Wow it will be 7 years this month!). It makes it tricky to keep friendships active with people there.
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a coloured pencil drawing of an adorable rabbit in a flower. Rabbits are one of my favourite animals and I do love flowers, so why not combine both? I am enjoying this new paper that I have been drawing on. It feels super silky smooth. It is now day 35 of my #drawingdailychallenge. I am proud and happy with of all of the drawings I have drawn so far ❤
I hope you enjoy the video. Sorry this post is up later than usual. I have been very busy working on projects and had to release this post and video a bit later. Hopefully having it released at this time, it can reach a new range of hearts. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Enjoy the foods that you love in life with great company. It seems to be that when we celebrate with others, beautiful memories are formed. Ones that can influence our hearts in a loving way, carrying us through life. Have a lovely day!
