best of raw

Have you ever won anything?  I’m trying to think if I have, and I’m not coming up with anything.  I’d like to say I won the Living Light employee valentine haiku contest last year but I didn’t.  Kate did.  Anyhow, guess what?  Living Light won “Best Culinary Arts Training” in the Best of Raw Awards

50 by mary elizabeth

So – in about a month I’ll be turning fifty.  FIFTY.  I mean, it’s no big deal, and just a number, and you’re only as old as you feel, blah, blah, blah.  I get all that.  But – if fifty is indeed the possible midpoint, then I could conceivably have as much to do as

I Love You by mary elizabeth

Are you one of the people who love Valentines Day or could you take it or leave it?  I’m one of the ones who loves it, but I have plenty of friends who don’t – so I guess I get both responses.  Well – no I don’t.  Seriously?  What’s not to love?  First of all,
