Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Change

When I think of change I think of food. Not just for the pure and simple fact that you combine a bunch of different ingredients, bake them, and something completely new emerges.  Food is tied to so many life events and changes. The smell of food, particularly fresh baked cookies, can evoke strong emotions or even change ones mood. Just walking into a kitchen where cookies are being backed I cant help but feel happy.

My photo is of a plate of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. As life changes and we move to new careers or different parts of the world, there are things like these cookie that will remind us of who we are and where we’ve come from. Growing up my favorite cookie was Peanut Butter and made by my great grandmother, but as I’ve grown I’ve come to love Chocolate Chip as well. Fresh gooey cookies have been with me through all the different changes I’ve seen over the years and I plan on them continuing on in their role.
