An Apple in Hand

After I finished listening to the Twilight Saga on audio, I have to admit I had withdrawals. Then I read the novels and then relistened to them so I could shut out the boring everyday tasks of life (like folding laundry, cooking, and cleaning). I could now envelope myself in a world of romance, charm, adventure and let's face it, Edward. ;)

My husband rarely complains about the headphones that have now become fused to my head, thank goodness for that. But despite knowing the books inside out, I'm still craving more. I'm not ready for it to be over. During my third round of the audio books, I found myself comparing my life to what Bella was experiencing. I started to think about my first car, where I went to highschool, and the first time I knew my husband was the one. The first time Josh told me he loved me and the way I felt, totally overcome with emotion, when my children were born.

And this is the catalyst of this blog.

What do you do when you have an apple in hand? Simply look at it and walk away? Take a bite, a mere sample? Or do you devour it, relish in it's flavor? I'm not quite ready to walk away. I hope you aren't either and will stay with me through this journey and exploration.

The first prompt is coming soon.
