Simple Saturdays: The simple things: PIZZA!!!!

PIZZA!!!! Hold it, Fold it, EAT IT!!!!

So shoot me! I just finally watched the Fight Club after all these years, and while I WONT talk about Fight Club, I will talk about something that has really been near and dear to me. Being Simple. Life is so complex these days, that sometimes we forget how good it is to be simple. That bike ride around the block. Sleeping in until 10am on a Saturday. Going on a Friday night with the family to just get a few cones of ice cream. The simple things. 


Well those who know me knows that there is one food that I LOVE almost all the time. That is PIZZA!!!! The perfect simple food. I mean, it has all the food groups, and unlike a cheeseburger, you still look super cool eating a huge slice of pizza...not so much with a 4 pound burger... lol. UNLESS its a Hardee's/Carl's Jr. commercial. lol

Being overseas, you often get great food from some of the top chefs in the world. And not to sound like Jon Stewart of the Daily Show, but frankly, I am partial to NY/NJ Pizza.... it's all about the fold in my opinion. If you have to eat it with a fork, then to me it isn't "REAL" Pizza. So how happy was I when Thursday, while being on travel, I stopped by a little pizza shop and they had 18" PIES!!!!!! As well as PIZZA BY THE SLICE! 2 Pepperoni Slices PLEASE! (Tip, when in NYC, don't say a slice of pizza, people will look at you funny, and it's redundant. Just say a Slice). Those two slices made my whole week! 




Leighton DaCosta

Hello, I'm Leighton and I help people around the world tell their story. Let me introduce myself. Whether it's for online dating, or a professional profile, it always seems that the "About Me" section is always the hardest to write. Not because you have nothing to say about yourself, but because you want to be sincere, genuine, interesting, and brief all at the same time. I have never been a fan of writing about me in the third person, like: "Leighton DaCosta, was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and moved to Brooklyn, NY at an early age when his parents wanted to form a new life for themselves and their children. In the third grade, the family moved to Orlando, Fl, where Leighton considers his home town. After spending 3 tours in the Navy, he settled in Jacksonville, and now Miramar, Florida, where he now calls home. Today, still wanted by many, he does work as a fashion and wedding photographer. If you have a wedding(or photo shoot)... if no one else can help... and if you can find him... maybe you can hire... ok.. this is not The A- Team." But you see what I mean? What do you know about me? How can we connect? Did you know that my FAVORITE food is Pizza and Sushi? Or that my favorite color is Purple? When I go to the wine bars, I usually order Mimosas, because even the cheapest champagne tastes great with some good ole OJ. When I travel, I like staying in nice hotels. Not because of the name, (even though I AM partial to Hyatt) but because of the bathrooms. One of my favorite hotels is the Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. Small rooms, but AWESOME bathrooms. I LOVE TO EAT, and eating as much as I have, has led me to be about 100 pounds more than I was in High School... Yeah there is some muscle there, but if it was all muscle, I'm sorry folks, I wouldn't be taking photos, I would be retiring from the NFL. If you want to see some of my favorite dishes, follow me on Instagram. Because of that, I find myself now in the gym more than ever. Trying to stay fit and alive... I workout, so I can EAT! Well that's enough for now, if you want to know more about me, follow my blog. Better yet, I want to find out more about YOU. So let's talk!
