Fashion and Bubbles

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I no longer work at Whole Foods as a demonstration chef and I’ve moved to California.  I know.  Not a bad way to go.  I am back to being a freelancer for the moment, but along with that title (and the state of this economy) comes the flexibility to jump around and take any job that comes your way.  In case you didn’t read in our about us section that I used to be a fashion designer, here is proof that I was.   Read more

The Grand Canyon Indeed

A couple of weekends ago we had a free opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon because we had airplane vouchers.  We decided to go to Phoenix, AZ and make a pit stop to the GC.  I went once with my parents and sister a long time ago, but didn’t appreciate it as a child.  But going back again, this time as a slightly less whiny child, I truly did get to soak up the splendor of the incredible view.   Read more
