basil lime chicken

i love growing up. i really do.
i've never really been the type to dread my bday or another year...
maybe that's because i haven't hit 30 yet. LOL! :)

nonetheless, i just love getting better and better.
do you feel that way?
that with each passing day of life,
you're just turning into a better version of yourself?

that's what i like to believe :)

one of the things i like about growing older
is learning to appreciate more and more things.

including a dish like this...

there were so many amazing flavors,
mixed together in a way i've never tasted before.
it was amazing.
