FOOD DAY 2012

After I reading both Fast Food Nation and The Omnivore’s Dilemma I was surprised at the food I was eating and buying. That there’s way too many chemicals going into my food that shouldn’t be. That there’s a lot of scary, behind the scenes stuff that lobbyists and big corporations are trying to hide from us. I realized that we have to take ownership of buying quality ingredients and food so that we can get the nutrients that our body craves to make us happy and live longer. And don’t get me wrong, I love french fries, hamburgers and dessert, but there’s a ton of stuff out there that’s crap, REAL crap.

Anyhoots, today is Food Day, a nationwide celebration and movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.

And as an honor to Tim, whose passion was food, introducing picky eaters to delicious, awesome things and sharing what he loved, I ask for you to eat something tasty and honor yourself. He always said that “when you buy food, it’s a vote.” It’s a vote to a better life for you, your family, the community, and the Earth.

So, have fun with food, support your community (those hardworking farmers and yummy restaurants), and check out more info on this site. These photos below from the Food Day Facebook page

MY AWESOME EUROPEAN ADVENTURE

Hello again, folks. It’s been awhile since my last post. And well, I’ve got a really great reason, or several great reasons.

First off, I quit my job mid-May to heal my heart, slow down, and figure out my life. Also was time for me to move forward creatively.

I went back East in June for my Dad’s 60th birthday, then to the midwest in July for my Grandma’s 80th birthday. Meanwhile, working “on my own” on some great client projects that I’ll share with you soon.

And for my 35th birthday (I know, I look 21 but I feel like an old hag at times!). I decided I wanted to do something awesome and adventurous. And Europe was calling in my heart. It’s been calling for a long time, actually. And I have my great friend Mike for reminding me to travel and do things “I” have wanted to do, but had to sideline with Tim’s health.

So for 17 whirlwind days in September, my sister and one of my best friends, Jill, went on a European adventure. We ate great food, met interesting people, saw Mick Jagger, drank fabulous wine, drank true Belgium beer, and toured through so many insanely beautiful and epic churches and museums. It was truly an escape.

I’ll be sharing more of our trip and what I’m up to currently, but this is my lovely teaser for now.

Ciao & many blessings!
