Coffee & soy milk
Apple & cinnamon oatmeal
Cannellini bean salad from Amy’s Bread
Sunshine Pie from Life Thyme, where I also dipped into the free samples of vegan cookies one-two-three too many times
So I’m coming out of my quasi-hibernation, my little break from overloaded schedules and emotional taxation. Thank you for your patience and kind words. I wouldn’t say I’m back with a vengeance, but I’m back. And happy for it. Ready to crank up the productivity levels again. Excited for new summer adventures.
On the book front, I had the delicious honor of being interviewed by Joan Hamburg for her talk radio show. A foodie and Francophile herself, it was fun to chat chocolate and cookies with her. I also found out my book is getting translated into Portuguese for the great, big country of Brazil, and it’s also been recorded and released as an audio book. Further heartening news: one of my best friends as well as a dear cousin are both reading Paris, My Sweet with their book clubs—which is so sweet, but also makes me feel a little funny (there's always someone who hates the book and/or author... how will they respond when the inevitable happens?? Eek!)
On the personal front, I happily have a man in my life. But I lost a dear aunt. I guess life is nothing if not a rollercoaster with many lessons to be learned and moments to be savored. I’m weaning myself, even if it’s ever so slightly, from sugar; working on an article about my beloved home, Connecticut; and wondering how I can get a Tracy Anderson body without the workouts (accepting all ideas and advice on any of the former points).
Et toi? What have you lovelies been up to??
