Tomorrow, when I get dressed, I will slip my feet into what I call my Red Boots of Courage. It’s going to be a long day. Americans will choose the 45th President of the United States in the 58th election held since we became a country. All American women have had the right to vote only since 1920. For first the first time in 240 years, we may have a female president. Anyone remember the cigarette campaign, “We’ve come a long way, baby!”? At least there will be an end to the ugly political ads.
In the spirit of focusing on the positive, I will compose a list of my favorites as of late.

I've updated my look. My personal look above (school photo 2016) and my blog's look. Same rambling thoughts, same stash of recipes, same daydreams about France, details from past trips and plans for future trips. Give it a try! I'd even love to hear your opinion about which platform you prefer.

Bon appétit! Keep cooking, eating, and daydreaming!
P.S. I love my gray hair! The Going Gray Gracefully Program went well and although at first every time I looked in the mirror I wondered who that old lady was, I am now so incredibly glad I took the leap. Luckily (for him), the Ex-Ex (well, he actually named it the GGGP) embraces the new look as well. Unlike some man whose wife wrote in Going Grey Gracefully, a FB group I belong to. The gist of the comment is that she has decided to go gray and he is embarrassed to take her to his office parties and to be seen out in public with her. I can answer that in one word JERK! And just to be clear, the Ex-Ex coined the name of my "Program" before I found the FB group. I have to offer that disclaimer before he calls me on it!
