Hello and hello!

December is the busiest month, isn’t it? What are you doing to avoid holiday overwhelm? If you have tips let me know!

What I wish for you, my friends, is just enough frivolous fun to make things interesting and a whole lot of calm, spent enjoying the things that please you most.

I like spending time with my family, relaxing in the company of friends that are in town for the holidays. I like trying new recipes and hope I don’t worry too much about having the “perfect holiday”. (That stuff only happens in the movies. Let it go. Less is more.)

I say savor what is…right here and right now. So please, don’t spend too much money, don’t get too stressed, don’t over do… Simply enjoy the day, where ever in the world you may be.

Best thoughts and all my love,


"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.


Light your fire
And never fear,
Life was made
For love and cheer.


Penguin madness! Famous chefs!
Horrifying pictures of me in Junior High!
– See it all here!


And do say hello! I’d love to hear from you!

PEACE ~ It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.

It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
