Back on my head

This is what we always say in our household when it's time to get back to work "alright then, back on my head" - it's from a very bad joke - one that probably isn't appropriate on a blog that talks about food. Alright then...

I haven't blogged but I've been super busy.  And now that all of the busy-ness is over I am exhausted!  We saw one kid off to new adventures in far away lands (or Nebraska, same difference)

My best friend and I managed to pull off planning a successful 30th high school reunion - we had a great time and wondered where all the years have gone.  We have known each other since we were four years old.  This is us at 15:

And at...well, you can do the math:
 Then days after driving home from Oregon I turned around and drove down to LA to get the other kid settled into her new house at school.  We had a fun night before we left - we went to see Taylor Swift in concert.  A nice mommy-daughter night, though the shrieks of the young girls was truly deafening.  

And today is our 25th wedding anniversary (and last week was my birthday).  Do you see what I mean?  There has been a lot going on!  

So now it is back on my head.

Ya'll look great!! Our 30th reunion is next summer- they are thinking about a cruise. What did you guys do?
Congrats on the anniversary too!

I love that expression! Last weekend I ran a 100 boat regatta and fed 300 people dinner on Saturday night. I am just now getting back on my head!

JGH - we just did a casual night at a reception hall. Appetizers and a no-host bar. Music on an ipod with big speakers, I made a memory video that played on the wall etc. Very laid back but we sure had a good time. I'll never plan one again though.

Wow Lynn, that would do me in! I think you need a longer rest!

Hey, I noticed your blog, liked some of these posts! Would you mind if we republished some of these articles in our newsletter or on our own site? It’s mainly a site for industry professionals in food/beverage, but I think a lot of them simply love every part of the world and would enjoy reading your blog. Let me know? I’ve linked to our site so you can see it.
