On the Personal Side
Here’s how I spend my free time – you know when I’m not creating blog content that I know you’ll love. I am spending my time by the seaside – the following photo was taken at Surf City, NC last fall with my iPhone. The sun was rising over the pier – and it really was magical.
My husband, Ken, and I have two bratty cats, Riley and Bailey. They are half brothers – they have the same father but Bailey’s mother had long hair – so you can see he has a fuzzy tail. Riley’s mother and father were both Siamese – so he has no special features other than those beautiful blue eyes. They are funny and cause a lot of trouble around the house.
I love exploring new wines – here’s some of my recent favorites. I tend toward the California cabs – I like the bold flavor. But it’s never hard to talk me into some champagne – especially if it’s Pol Roger – pink!

Also I like to cook … here’s some dishes I’ve made (that did not kill anyone!) This was a homemade bruschetta - garden fresh tomatoes, basil and my secret ingredient Balsamic Port Vinegar. You can see Bailey in the background sitting on the trashcan – supervising. He knows he’s not allowed on the counter-tops – so this is as close as he can get.
Another favorite – pizza with freshly made ricotta cheese and lots of garlic!
My Wonderful Husband – Ken!
