Live Real. Eat Real.


Yeah, that’s my age.  I celebrate another important anniversary tomorrow – I quit smoking four years ago.

We’re taking The Young One to Cleveland to fly to Texas to visit with the paterfamilias for the holiday, so we decided to stay for the night and are going to eat dinner at Michael Symon’s Lola Bistro.  This weekend we drive to Cincinnati to visit with The G Man for Christmas (if we can fit all the gifts in the car :P).

Since we’re going to be so busy, I’m taking a few days off from blogging, and probably won’t be back until next Wednesday, when we return from Cincinnati.

Happy Holidays!


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Jan! And the biggest, sloppiest, loving-ist HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!
