I’ve become so tired of reading about politics, I decided to write a food and travel blog. Hi. Welcome. It’s a pleasure to see you. Have fun reading and exploring. Hopefully you will find inspiration for travel, food and healthy nutrition. The most important things in my life are my husband and children. Life will be meaningless without them, so everything I do, I do with them in mind, including writing this blog and cookbook. I’m busy with the old cliché, “Bored housewife writes cookbook.” Maybe it’s more complicated than that, “former-scuba instructor-holistic nutritionist-aspiring librarian-world traveling-interesting-adventure seeking-housewife writes cookbook.” While working on the cookbook, my daughter Melanie suggested that I write a blog. I’ve been toying with the idea for about a year now and her unprompted prompting pushed me over the edge. At first I was reluctant to start. What if it’s a failure? What if nobody reads it, or worse, tell me my blog is boring? Oh well. I’m going to step out and find out and maybe even do it afraid and besides, you can’t walk on water if you don’t step out of the boat! I want to share this journey with you, because the joy of sharing is part of what gives my life meaning. I hope that you will enjoy it with me.
