When it comes down to life, How can you not help but compare? It is crazy to fathom that all of us "regular" people have many different strengths and talents, but more often than not there is ALWAYS someone who is bigger, better, and more poised at doing it. Sometimes Its un-motivating and other times It doesn't even cross my mind. But tonight I came across this quote. It put everything into perspective.
You can't continuously compare yourself to others - because when you do it leaves little room for you to just be YOU. In a world filled to the tippy-top with individuals trying to leave their mark on the world, it is often hard to find your own path to carve out. Hopefully this quote leaves you with the same humbling inspiration as it did for me.
Prepare the artichoke for boiling. Cut approximately 1 & 1/2 inches off of the top. This allows you to trim the smaller leaves in one smooth step. Proceed with snipping off any other thorns on the larger leaves with scissors. This step is not necessary but makes enjoying your artichoke a heck-of-alot safer ;)
Cut the Artichoke in half. You can do this before or after boiling.
Place each half face down on the grill. This step should be measured on temperature of grill as well as personal preference but I typically grill my artichoke for about 15 minutes. Alternate between face down and face up to get an even flavor and texture all around.
Serve and enjoy!
1/4 cup of Mayonnaise
2 TBS Balsamic Vinegar
Do you look forward to the Lonny issues each month? I know I can always count on them to have, of course, gorgeous images but also plenty of steal-worthy inspiration! Tomorrow is hump-day.

Today's Sunday Snapshot features some of the items that (with fingers crossed) will one day be mine. My favorite, of course, is the most handsome photo of my Grandpa Brue during his days in the service. I also gathered her super chic Zebra print perfect for a gallery wall, a gold gilded unicorn - OBSESSED, and no Sunday Snapshot should go without a signature statement necklace.
