Peanut Butter Pie for Mikey

I will be making a Peanut Butter Pie this weekend. A food blogger, Jennifer lost her husband unexpectantly last week to a massive heart attack. I am sorry to be the barer of bad/sad news, but there you go. Mikey's favorite dessert was Peanut Butter pie. Jennifer told the blog world in her most recent post that "For those asking what they can do to help my healing process, make a peanut butter pie this Friday and share it with someone you love. Then hug them like there's no tomorrow because today is the only guarantee we can count on."

I just came back from a delicious "special treat" dinner with my sweet husband. We went to Bonvenu and it was delicious. Not my most favorite restaurant in Richmond, but it was yummy. We had planned to go to Zeus Gallery a favorite of ours, but we didn't have a reservation and it was booked. No fear, we decided to try something new! We shared fried calamari for an appetizer and a bottle of white wine. I had a shrimp and grits type dish and he had a pork tenderloin dish. Did I mention this was a special treat night? We rarely go out for these types of splurges/meals! We were enjoying a night out just the two of us and a little celebration of my new job. We had a great time. Then, I came home and read all of these posts about the peanut butter pie. Tears. So sad. Life is so, so, SO very precious. Tell those around you that you love them, be happy, give hugs, count your blessings, take care of your body, live every day and every moment to the fullest. Life is too short. Don't take life and love for granted...

Now, I have a heavy heart. Heavy for a person I don't know. I am counting my blessings tonight.

Be on the lookout for my PB Pie recipe soon...
