I'm 52, recently widowed and moved to Texas to be close to my sister. Love it here! Though I miss my kids both grown now, I'm glad I moved here. Lots of good food and new recipes to learn. I am a personal chef to some very nice people, enjoy it very much. My passions are cooking, baking, history, reading...not always in that order. Oh, and gardening, now I actually have some land to plant in, not just a container garden like I had in California. Can't wait for spring!!
