One of my core values is that a girl can't be all work and no play. (an vice versa, of course!) So -- even though I was in Seattle for the 2013 Sew Expo planning meeting -- I was careful to schedule in some FUN STUFF every single day.
It is always a joy for me to spend time with Pat Leslie. Joanne Ross worked with Pat in the Extension office for many years. Joanne's thing was textiles -- and Pat's gig was always about the FOOD... AND IT STILL IS. Here we are, AFTER a large dinner party at a local Vietnamese restaurant -- enjoying our dessert...
Oh, yeah. I LOVE MY LIFE. And I have a whole new thing to be grateful for.
Because Iowa doesn't have any hills to speak of -- nobody has ever lost their house to a mudslide.
