59 Candles, 59 Things – Part Twenty Two

For those of you who have followed my blog, you may have thought I abandoned this series. Fear not! I’ve just slowed it down. I started this series in May when I turned 59, dedicated to 59 Things that make me happy. I was on vacation at the onset and got almost halfway through when our Michigan summer turned beautiful, my garden beckoned…..I simply got sidetracked.

Thirtieth Thing: I love herbs – growing them and cooking with them. I often make a bouquet of them as a hostess gift.

While it isn’t hard to buy herbs year round, it’s not the same as walking out to the herb garden and snipping a few, just minutes before using them in a favorite recipe.
