The last twelve months have been an experience I never could have imagined: renewed health, new friends, a new lifestyle, and I am inspired daily by what God has given me.

Saturday I got my first produce bag from Natural Farms food co-op. I am very impressed with the quantity and quality, and loved their store. The cucumbers and mango just had to join each other in the same bowl and a wonderful salad was born in my kitchen. Cucumbers, mango, and red peppers, dressed with a mixture of pineapple juice, honey, oil, peach balsamic vinegar, salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper. After being refrigerated a few hours it was fabulous!
We ended the day with Mass and a lovely dinner with friends we have not seen in some time. It was such a nice day the heat wasn't even a factor (could I be getting use to this 100 degree plus weather??)
Today was a great day too. A leisurely start on the patio, time with my Mom, and even some playtime in the kitchen.
And so, this amazing year ends and a new one begins. I am so grateful to the people who have made a difference in my life this last year: Dr. Malloy for opening the door, myself for having the courage to pass through it, and all I have met along the way who truly have inspired and changed me. Life is good, it is sooooooooo good. I thank God for the gifts he has blessed me with this year.
In honor of my one year anniversary I made a purchase to help me bounce right into my second year.
I can't wait for it to arrive!
More on that soon!
