Yesterday morning I was grinding sea salt onto my breakfast and realized that my grinder was almost empty. I was flooded with the memories of the trip that brought that container of Spice Islands Sea Salt my way.
In the summer of 2009 (yes, nearly 4 years ago) I was living in Abu Dhabi and was meeting my son in Amsterdam for a 3 week EuroRail vacation. I asked him to bring a shaker of Spice Islands Sea Salt with him, since I couldn’t find it over seas… he brought 2 bottles…. This is what is left of bottle number 2:
It has reminded me of the amazing trip we had… so much fun traveling with my son… He’s so UNNEEDY and a foodie, so we ate well… here’s some pics…
I think 2 bottles of Sea Salt in 4 years isn’t so bad… and the memories of how they got to me are awesome… Nick… mom needs another bottle of salt!
Hello beautiful Sandi! Look how you’ve changed since that time!!! What a delicious way to have a reminder of a grand trip with your son…every small turn of the grinder singing out the day you received it 🙂
I kept thinking today: Like salt through the grinder, so are the Days of Our Lives 🙂
It’s pretty cool that I’m reminded of that trip nearly daily!
Love this — your photos fulfill all my travel fantasies 🙂
Thanks, MJ. I’ve been meaning to do blog posts on the cities we visited, alas, one day!
This may sound weird.. Your son is a hottie! Congrats on that one, Sandi! Hope that didn’t sound too creepy… 😉
LOL, Jamie… not creepy at all 🙂 You’re right, he’s a hotty… got it from his momma… hehe
Love the pic of you and Nick. He is more than a hottie. He4 is the most loving person I know (next to you). True love runs in this family.
He’s an awesome son, for sure!
