you don"t need to save the crystal for a special day, even water tastes better in a "Fancy Glass"

Add one cup of fun and stir with vigor

Being around kids is the best reminder of how to have fun.
I watched them yesterday taking big bites of life and savoring every minute.
At first they didn't quite know which way to look or where to go. But that didn't last long.
Then the whirlwind began. Oh, and at the end of the day for the middle ones- there was dancing
and revelry.

My Life has a Big Deliciousness

I love wine-ing and dining
And I love watching people enjoy our food
Never get tired of feeding hearts, minds and souls.
This kind of experience is why we do what we do.
And I revel in it.

room with a view

Sometimes the best way to figure out the small stuff is to take the long view
far away can often make up close make more sense.
and anyway, it looks pretty.

it is all about the food

I am working on new ideas, as I try to execute the old ones.
it's a tougher balancing act than I thought it would be.
I guess that has been true about almost everything in the last two years.
But at least I know the turkey will be good.
and afterall, it is all about the food.

the real question

I think, more important than asking
what HE did or didn't do-
Is asking ourselves what we will do?
And asking Why we are waiting to do it?

The BEST time of Year!

And so it begins, the best time of year.
Waiting for the Pumpkins and Witches, Apples and Cookies.
And Oh the Turkeys!
I love the happiness they bring- esp. to those of us far from home.
Big vats of potatoes, trays of stuffing and tart cranberries.
Let the planning begin.

Change of perspective

Nothing like spending a day with 5 year olds
to change your perspective on just about everything.
