A Few Love Announcements...

-Did you guys see the comments from the last post on marriage (the story about a couple who moved overnight to save their crumbling marriage while the husband was having an affair)??  If you haven't, you might want to take a look.  They are incredible & heart warming.  Especially the comment from the woman's husband, John........*wow*.......... it will blow you away.

-I just spotted these amazing Scandia/Navajo boots on the street in Brooklyn and had to share!  They are by Tecnica, a new-to-me brand that sells skiing/apres skiing boots.  The woman said this pair is vintage & that the vintage Tecnica boots are the best...Here's a line up of what is available now on E-bay.  Lots of great options, including this exact style.


 
-The chairman's office of American Airlines just asked for our address.  They said they want to do something nice for us (because of this incident).  We appreciate their good gesture.  

-I LOVE these heat-generating crew necks from Uniqlo.  They are the perfect undershirt (well-fitted & thin!) and they really do keep me warm.

-I couldn't be happier I discovered the "Winter Leggings" from American Apparel last year.  They really are the perfect leggings for winter - toasty warm, but not too bulky.  They keep me warm on all my walks/runs in the park. 

-I just signed us up for the 5-Borough Bike Ride lottery for May.  The lottery ends Feb. 7th, so get your registration in now!  If you'd like to ride with us, let me know...(groups need to sign up under the same team.)

-I just discovered this great GF Cookie Mix.  I did my research and all the GF peeps on-line said this brand was the best one.  I agree, it's the best one I've had.

-Since I am dairy-free, I looove my sister-in-law's amazing vegan recipes that she recently started posting on line.  She's an expert and over the summer made us the best green smoothies, dips, and salads from my sister's garden.   Here is her latest recipe that both Danny & I went nuts over!!  It is a  decadent & delicious blender nacho cheese dip.  I swear it's better than the real thing.  All the adults and kids ate this right up.

-I just started a monthly womens' lecture series in Brooklyn.  The first event was packed!  Our first lecturer (a woman my age) has had a kidney transplant, 2 IVFs, twins with cogenital heart disease who were born just over 1 pound each and barely survived, and now...she has a terminal illness.  We couldn't believe her story.  But mostly, we couldn't believe her faith, strength & courage in the face of her trials.  We were so inspired and strengthened by her.  All are invited to come to the future lectures!  They will all be given by inspiring women.  I'll start announcing them here.

  1. I still can't believe that flight attendant. I had to go back and reread the story just to be disgusted with her again. Happy weekend.

  2. Beautiful boots. I love the corded detail - think it would look great on the cuff of a sweater or jacket. Hmmm.

    That lecture series sounds inspiring. Wish I was near enough to attend. Shoot, Mara, reading your blog invokes a serious NY/Bklyn longing - especially those fabulous finger paintings you had posted, yesterday.

    Thanks so much for the link... I never enjoyed cooking, but since discovering raw food preparation, I've had so much fun in the kitchen. You guys are a great audience - you're both so expressive and appreciative about good food. That makes the chef all the more motivated! More good recipes coming soon. Love you.

  5. Love your blog - am inspired about marriage by the things you write and so I am tad embarrassed that the first time I comment is b/c of Pamela's products! Just wanted to say that if you enjoy their cookie mix, their pancake mix is out of this world - makes you happy to still be able to enjoy them on weekend mornings! So yay for good marriage advice, and yay for good gluten free products!
