Bali High

Bali has been on my list of places to go for many years.  This year I finally made it there.   Was it everything I wanted it to be?     Absolutely, the only negative was we did not spend enough time there. The people are warm, the food is fabulous, it is clean, and there is a peacefulness to it all. We started in Ubud at The Viceroy Hotel ( not affiliated with the Viceroy Hotel here). It was a beautiful spot and our indoor/ outdoor room was gorgeous. Who would not love this bathroom, and the products were great as well.   While there we did a lot of relaxing, sightseeing, shopping, hiking, eating, and did I mention...

I met a fascinating woman at a dinner party over the summer and although she only resides here for a few months we have been keeping in touch via social media and email.

Gobble Gobble and Compromise

Thanksgiving is soon upon us.  Deep breath, and smile.  Truth be told it is my favorite holiday being solely based around food and all.  I have a friend that loves to cook. It was always her pleasure to cook the entire meal  and invite her friends whom she considers her chosen family,  also people that were not with their families, people who didn't like to cook , and people who were just hungry, it always proved to be an interesting table.  A beautifully set table that is as that is her way, she has amazing taste. Life, it is ever changing and full of compromises.  My friend is now married to someone that loves cooking as much as she does, which means they...
