10 Things You May Not Know About Me

Wordpress Freshly Pressed

My Unexpected Landing on the Freshly Pressed Page

It’s been a whorl wind day for this non-blogger for sure – I’m such a newbie, I didn’t even know what being Freshly Pressed meant! I want to express my sincere gratitude to the WordPress  folks for their kind and generous nod that significantly helped introduce me to many new friends.

Everyone’s comments were all so thoughtful; and I am reminded that I am not alone.  And knowing that we are not alone is really the most powerful part of community. (View Freshly Pressed Post – 5 Sneaky Productivity Lies)

I’m doing my best to reply to all the comments and visit your sites, and I hope you’ll be patient because it will probably take a little while 😉

My Top 5 #FoodThanks List – What Are Yours?

23 Nov

Jean-Pierre Wolff, Wolff Vineyards

I know thousands of farmers. I’ve worked with farmers for 15 years.  I love my farmers. But I know that it’s easy to forget that it takes people to grow food because we buy most of our food from grocers and we don’t have a FACE to go with the food.  So today is a day to celebrate and thank the farmers who grow the food we enjoy everyday.

  1. I’m thankful for cheese & nuts – because they make me feel like a gourmet.
  2. I’m thankful that I have the choice to buy my food at the farmer’s market, supermarket, neighborhood market, and online market.
  3. I’m thankful for all the fresh fruits and vegetables in my kitchen and that my body craves them.
  4. I’m thankful for olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and basil, because they’re good with everything.
  5. I’m thankful that I don’t wake up or go to sleep hungry.

Do you know a farmer? Have you thanked a farmer lately? Please consider sharing your #foodthanks in the comments below, via twitter, and on Facebook.
