  Hello from me!  Since the accident, after the initial craving for the oddest of comfort foods, hello chip butty, we’ve been making lots of healthy soups, salads and veggies and lovely friends have also delivered a few comforting soups (even though the weather has been a hottie) and meals too…and this comforting recipe has [...]

Meeting My Half Brother


Last night I was fortunate to have met one of my half brothers.  Seth is here for the weekend from Alaska.  We have been texting and talking on the phone since I first made contact with my birth father last spring.  He is so down to earth and easy to talk to.  I hope to take a trip to Alaska soon to visit him there. 
I may get a chance to meet my other half brother next month as he will be in Tampa for a wedding.  Feeling very fortunate lately!  After waiting all my life I feel as though the pieces are finally coming together.
