Nutella and Fruit Toast :: Spread the Happy

Lately, I’ve gotten into the habit of leaving myself inspirational notes on my night table. Just a little something reminding me to smile, be positive, and to aspire for great things that day. I love beginning the day with happy thoughts.

I’m not sure why I hadn’t started this practice until now, after all I have spent years dropping little notes into my son’s lunchbox and backpack. It’s always so wonderful to get a sweet note in return. Leaving inspirational notes for others is a lovey and yet simple thing to do, and something I plan to continue. I think I’ll start dropping little notes of inspiration around town, in places where I shop and visit. Wouldn’t it be nice to find a random note like that?

On the topic of starting the day with something positive…


Spread the Happy - Nutella and Fruit Toast

A simple and delicious breakfast of whole wheat toast, Nutella, and fruit is certainly something to smile about. Wouldn’t you say?

Spread the Happy - Nutella and Fruit Toast

My nieces are always happy to start the day or snack on Nutella toast. We spread on a nice layer of creamy Nutella and then top it with whatever fresh fruit we can find in the crisper.

It’s good stuff.

The toast almost looks like a work of art. It’s funny to see the care that goes into placing each piece of fruit onto the toast, only to be gobbled up moments later.
