For today’s entry I would like to hand the electronic pen over to a woman I admire greatly. My former roommate and partner in wine, steamed spinach, and chocolate nosh sessions -Mari. Her recent post on her amazing blog Y Tu Palta Tambien captures the feelings I’m having inside about the recent death of Nora Ephron. Thanks to Mari’s beautiful tribute to Nora I was able exercise the deep sense of despair I was feeling and begin the healing process. Thanks Mari! I think I’ll have a glass of wine and some chocolate now.
This Apple Tart recipe from La Tartine Gourmande is quick, easy, and delicious. The flavor is subtle and soothing, and therefore, won’t last long around this house.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip. Sixty-five years of marriage. They are an icon of long lasting love. Seeing and B and I are recently engaged, I’m drawn to stories of true love and successful marriages. Granted, all the money in the world doesn’t hurt one’s chances. Nevertheless, I am confident that I have found the love of my life. Think we can replicate this picture in sixty-five years?
