Easy Crab Soup

When we feel we are valuable, we surround ourselves with luxury. Comforts and pleasures beyond those needed for everyday living. Luxury is not a materialism; it doesn't have to be a new car or a shiny ring. It can simply be a holiday candle, a piece of good chocolate, listening to good music. These luxuries cost little but mean so much.

My luxury today is crab soup and boy oh boy is it good. A little bit expensive — but I'm worth it. What’s your idea of treating yourself to luxury?
