Happy 100th Birthday and Bon Appétit!

I love Julia Child on many levels and it is not just her food. 
She is an inspiration to all women that it is possible to change the course of your life
and try something new and to this 40 something women that is SO encouraging!

Julia was a women who was not afraid to take risks, start something new,
did not care what conventional people said but just did it,
followed a dream and it was later in life.
She's been coming into my home since childhood, but it is only as I
have gotten older, my love, admiration and appreciation of her has grown.
As a wife and a mother there many times I have to chose the good of the
whole, and those choices are made out of love for others
and made out of strength and not a weakness
 BUT there will come a day when I am not needed every moment by a little
four year old wanting to know what scorpions looks like or by an
almost 16 year old wondering if her Henry V book has arrived yet.
 I still have time to go to cooking school, brush up on French, learn Ancient Greek,
become a certified master gardener, write a book...what ever the passion...if you are still alive,
there is still keep growing, learning, exploring and experiencing this beautiful world.
Happy 100th Birthday to you, Julia and thank you for your inspirational life.
You made this world a better place and for that I am so grateful!


"Bon Appétit!"
