Hey Ya'll!

I'm channeling Paula Deen since moving to Kentucky.

Well, I've been in the U.S. for a good 3 weeks.....there are surprises, good and bad. I won't dwell on the bad, ok! We are still waiting for our 'stuff' in limbo, even with a nice view just isn't cutting it anymore!

Having lived in an 'expat' community for a long time, you learn that as 'the new gal', you've got to get out and get your feet wet. Sign up for groups, seek out exercise classes.....find the next cooking class! Well, the mecca of all things culinary is as far as 'the mall'. Williams-Sonoma! I've been super curious about their offerings of cooking demonstrations, so I signed 'the old man' and myself up for the Super Bowl Snack demo.

A full house surrounded our chef/instructor. A place setting, cold drinks and pans were heating on 'the hob'. She did a great job, we grazed while she set out to create the next snack. It was a fun evening. Let's not forget about the 10% reduction you get while attending a class. I had to buy some Alziari Olive Oil.......oh the memories.

Since then, we took a drive to Midway, I met a very interesting young woman and promise to blog about her soon!

We are leading parallel lives. We are expecting our stuff to arrive within a few days. It's here waiting to be delivered. I've sort of enjoyed not having any possessions around me.

Holy moly, 23 years? Packed up and moved? Dang, that's a huge move too. Not like around the corner or nothin'. Try any BBQ joints yet?

Hi Melissa! It's an old friend from your early days in Paris. I am so impressed by this site and what you have done since I last saw you so many years ago.

I don't know how to reach you but if you still have my old contact information please call/write - I am still in the same city/state.

I have lovely memories of our times together and would love to chat.
