Book Talk

In the last couple of years, I have been doing so much more reading.  I realized at some point that I was exhausted from reading short bits online every day, and wanted the escape of plunging into a real book.  To be honest, I am not as well-read as I would like to be–my tendency […]

What You Mean to Me

Today I want to just take a moment to share something I’ve been thinking about with you… Not a tutorial, a recipe, a trip or a part of our English life– just me and part of my journey.  I don’t know if everyone will “get” it, but I hope you can relate in some way.  […]

8 Fantastic Cookbooks for Gentlemen

Let’s talk cookbooks! I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites this month, as you shop for gifts or make up your own wishlists.  When we first moved overseas, we sold or gave away almost all of our books– but we have been rebuilding the kitchen section gradually, and it’s been […]

On Crossing Finish Lines…

So, I crossed an important finish line last weekend.  It was my college graduation:  I finally finished that degree that I began over 15 years ago. The one that I amassed way too many (250!) credits for at five different colleges. No, not the degree in Liberal Studies, Spanish, Intercultural Studies, or Exercise Physiology (yes, […]

Writing a New Chapter in 2013

There is something so hope-filled and exciting about beginning a new year, isn’t there?  I am glad for calendars, for this way of encapsulating certain seasons in our lives, and the chance we have to start a new section or theme.  I know every single day is new, and that we make choices moment by […]
