It has been an honor and a privilege for thirty four years, to be my beloved Viking’s camp follower. I would follow him through hell and back because I know he would bring me home safely, or die trying. There have been eighteen house hold moves in twenty seven years, three were over seas. I have traveled in twenty different countries; in our country, I have explored America in forty seven different states. I have tasted my way around the world, literally. Veni, Vedi, Visa. I came, I saw, I did a little shopping. Hey, someone has to keep the economy rolling. I am a U.S. Army wife and damn proud of it.
I do not believe in coincidence and that word does not exist in my vocabulary.
At the age of thirty after being told I would need fertility drugs to get pregnant, and a pregnancy would still be doubtful, God blessed us with a baby girl. Twenty nine years later, she continues to be the most perfect gift my husband has ever given me. (The endometriosis can just kiss my butt!)
I have a degree in Theatre and an opinion about everything. I have a strong, undeniable faith in God and I believe that I live in the greatest nation on this planet. (Seriously, after making that statement, you thought I was just going to walk away from that…LOL…)
After reading this phrase in the paper, I think it is appropriate. It is a quote from a woman who was being interviewed. She referred to herself as a domestic entertainment chef. What I got from the article is that she loves to cook and entertain. I would have to agree that label would apply to me. There is no recipe to complicated or day of the week that is not worth celebrating.
One of my favorite pastimes is to visit tea houses and then review them on my blog site. I was blessed to observe a tea ceremony in Korea and have had tea in lots o’ places in between. Most elegant tea was at the Savoy in London…worth every British pound and pound on my body. One of my worst experiences was at the London Ritz…when I called to book the reservation it started with “You will only have forty five minutes at the table…” and it just went down hill from there.
On the flip side of that, I love coffee. “Really, you roast your own beans! I’ll be right over!”
