A New Year of Love, Joy, Great Food and All As It Should Be!
Happy New Year to you and yours! First let me say how grateful I am that you share a bit of your time by reading my blog. This past year has brought me joy, love, tears and great food. As superstitious as it all may be, I still write down my wishes for the New Year in a little Peruvian clay pot that my mother gave me that I then put away and forget until the last day of the year. Reading through small crunched up pieces of paper I realize that all I have wished for has either come true, not come true, brought something better or something new completely that I never imagined. The process of reading and discarding the old to make place for the new rings true that life is a mixture of happiness and sadness but that it all is as it should be. Believe me when I say that I’ve had my share of heartbreak in the last few years but I have also welcomed many joys that somehow balance this ride called LIFE. Among other wishes, this New Year I intend to continue cooking great meals, drinking good wines and just appreciating and being grateful for every morsel of fortune that comes my way. The key for me is to have the vision and then work towards it. Then the universe takes over. Here is to 2014, my family, my friends, living and creating with heart, passion and compassion, and the year where all is as it should be~ Tabatha
