For Easter Sunday, I made this lovely spinach salad
with fresh strawberries and candied pecans.
I created my first Steller photo story with these photos,
and thought you might enjoy the recipe too :)

“The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity…These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world.”

"Change in all things is sweet." ~ Aristotle
Everyone once and a while,
it's good to look at things from a different perspective,
to reconsider the obvious or comfortable choice.
To that end, it's time for a spring makeover --
a clean layout & subtle palate to showcase my photos.

It's officially Spring Break and I have a major case of wanderlust. Last year, I was enjoying long strolls under blossoming trees and the lovely weather that is quintessential "April in Paris." This year it's gray skies, a good chance of rain (possibly snow!), and brisk walks under bare trees -- springtime in Wisconsin. What Spring Break 2014 lacks in atmosphere, I hope to make up for in much-needed rest, a couple of good books, and a bit of pampering. Maybe I don't need a change in latitude to change my attitude...but it wouldn't hurt!

Camomile is a lovely little flower
that offers health and beauty benefits that can make you even lovelier!

Farewell, Sweet Buster, my first nephew. You always greeted us with a smile, an enthusiastic howl, and tail that never stopped wagging. You were a good dog, a loyal friend, and a great big brother. Thank you for the joy you brought to your family for nearly twelve years. You have left our lives, but you will never leave our hearts.
Love always, Auntie

We were disappointed when our favorite restaurant here in Okauchee Lake closed last fall, but we're thrilled that it has since reopened as Le Rendez-vous. The proprietor is Parisian and the chefs are experimenting with a variety of French fare, including crêpes, mussels, soupe à l'oignon, crème brûlée...miam! Delicious, but now I miss France even more.
