Soup For The Soul.

I love soup. I think I’ve always loved soup. Probably because my mother rarely put a meal on the table that didn’t include her signature “green soup” as a starter. She used up every veggie in the fridge that was starting to wilt and turned it into a delicious, creamy soup that we always gobbled…

7 Day Post Vacation Detox!

This post is spurred by an old friend of mine who, for several weeks straight, posted his food and drink pics on Facebook. And while his meals certainly looked mouth-watering, he shared that he’d be ready for a re-set once he got home, so I suggested writing a blog post for him, and anyone else,…

BIG Love

I just finished reading Big Love by Scott Stabile. It was a joy to read, and I gobbled it up during a recent visit to the spa with Roger for his birthday. It was a truly decadent way to spend the day…soaking up the warm sun and enjoying the delicious words that Scott served up.…

Robin Williams. Dad. Life.

Three years ago, we lost a brother. A spectacular human who made us laugh as often as he made us cry. A man who had us asking deep questions while we challenged our beliefs. A human who made us feel more…human. Robin Williams was larger than life. And maybe that’s what happened. Maybe he no…
