Your words in my comments the other day brightened my day. It is a high honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as Anne Morrow Lindbergh. I love her writings especially a Gift From the Sea. I continually come back to it year after year.


Happy new year Tracy, all the very best for 2011. I too have some 'health' goals, not just physical health but healthy practices in all areas of my life. I am just getting over the shock of being back at work, ugh! I must get myself together to get my first post of for the year, or it will never happen.


Tracy, your risotto verde looks fabulous and healthy too. I hope that this year brings lots of improvements for you in the area of health and well being and that you are able to reach your goals. I have goals too, one being to get healthier, both physically and spiritually. I love your new photo. You are such a pretty woman. I consider you one of my treasures. I truly value your friendship and love you very much. Here's to a bright 2011 for both of us! xxoo


Happy New Year Tracy and to your dear husband and Charlie too. We do seem to put a lot of pressure on ourselves and it's good to slow down. My intention this year is to be myself and like being me. I must start healthy eating soon, but there is so much Christmas food, cakes, biscuits, cheese, to finish first, maybe next month.

You have a wonderful motto, Tracy! I've always loved the motto "Live well, laugh often, love much" although these days it has become somewhat of a cliche because of overuse. I think it succinctly states the goals of the way I've been trying to live my life. The "live well" portion reminds me to enjoy all I have around me, both the big and the little things. The road ahead of me is shorter than the road behind me, so I try not to delay joy, as much as I am able, and I try not to stress over things I have no control over. I try to avoid negative people and to show love and attention to those who matter the most to me.
I am also trying to eat more sustainably this year --more locally grown fruits and vegetables, etc.
Your risotto looks delicious! Legumes are an excellent source of iron, so eat lots of them, too, if you can!

Lovely sentiments dear Tracy. Simplicity has always been a good thing in my life. As I read your post, I thought of the beautiful poem "slow dance". It speaks of slowing our lives and enjoying each moment, a good thing indeed. Wishing you nothing but the very best in 2011 dear friend.




Dear Tracy, I jus got back from vacation yesterday - back to snowy weather. I too had challenges for 2010 and I definitely feel 2011 will be easier, wonderful, more peaceful. My word is 'being' no struggle just receiving good and living life:)

Angel Hugs,

Dear Tracy, I hope 2011 will bring you much health, joy and happiness with both your families! I hope you will be able to slow down! Take care dear friend!


The risotto looks absolutely marvelous!

I love your mantra for the new year, Tracy! All my best wishes for a healthy, happy, s-l-o-w 2011.


Tracy, these posts I missed are gold. Yes, I do the detox too. Sure helps with energy and digestion. Plus talking about slow food... yum. Greens make such a difference in the diet. Thanks for your thoughts on going slower. My word for the year is "decide."
