Simply So Good

 I love a great farmers market, dresses, gray wool and running.  I'd choose a farmers market over a shoe sale any day.   Most of all I love my family.  We gather often as a family to create family traditions and memories which are always centered around food.  I love good fresh food.   I am an avid runner.  I have run 26 marathons and I have run the Boston marathon 6 times with my husband.  Family, running and food are my life.  I have a great life.
