happy new year dear readers-
please join me in wishing my daughter domenica a VERY happy, healthy, memorable 20th birthday (12th january). it will certainly be “memorable” this year since she is currently studying abroad in PAU, france. she chose to stay with a host family and she’s been blessed with a lovely, charming, extremely helpful family.
rather than baking a favorite dessert together or sharing a special birthday dinner, her dad and i will be “skyping” our birthday wishes and enjoying her beautiful smile via the internet…with love.
other momentous news from www.colormykitchen.com is a feature article about domenica and me in MOTHER EARTH LIVING, natural home, healthy life, JAN/FEB. 2014 issue. (see photo of cover above)
we are honored to be featured in this timely, inspirational, enlightening periodical about “genuine” people, their environments and their contributions to make the world a better place for all of us. from the moment i read editor-in-chief jessica kellner’s first letter to readers, i was encouraged by her vision for the magazine, her choice to provide important information to the magazine’s subscribers and her desire to take on vital issues which affect many of us.
so, jump in your car (or on your bike) and pick up MOTHER EARTH LIVING at your local barnes & noble, wholefoods or sprouts market (or subscribe online at www.motherearthliving.com). this JAN/FEB. 2014 issue is packed with pertinent lifestyle articles, not to mention a six page story about a mom named elena, her daughter, her supportive husband, her garden, food passions and hope for future generations. a special thank you to california based photographer raya carlisle for her beautiful images. it was an enjoyable and rewarding experience to work with jessica and raya and we feel that they portrayed our story and home with simple honesty.
it is my hope that you will all read the piece (and the rest of the magazine!) and pass it along to friends, neighbors and family.
may 2014 bring you many blessings,
p.s. also a VERY happy birthday on 12th january to my baby brother, rob!
