1 large tomato, chopped
2 Tbsp. Kraft 100% Parmesan Light Grated Cheese
Heat dressing in large deep skillet or Dutch oven on medium-high heat.

Day 20 - a hobby of yours

Again, I have a few, and they are interchangeable for me according to season or mood.
I love to read, and especially like to visit old libraries. The smell of old books makes me imagine the world about to delve into when I open the book I chose.
I love photography. I love capturing life at it's funniest, best, silliest moments.
I love to do arts and crafts. Anything really, and I mostly enjoy doing it with other people.

Day 19 - a talent of yours

I can sing (I pretty much spent all my time on stage until the age of 20)
I can skate (not as well anymore, but I used to figure skate and am told I was fairly good at it)
I can Photograph..(See my stuff at
I can cook / bake / Grill etc.. and am told I am alright at that..
I am a talented shopper.. ask my husband (and Visa)!
I have a few other talents - but these are my best ones :)

Day 18 - Our wedding

Our wedding was beautiful, and if I was the kind of person that actually had fantasies about that day - I would say it went precisely as I would fantasize.
We were married at Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
Our destination wedding let us really enjoy our day, take time to be with our guests, and take it all in.
What I remember most about that day is all the moments I got to stop and actually look around.
Realizing the magic of our wedding day, on our actual wedding day is a special experience I wish every couple to have.

Mom & dad walking me down the 'aisle'. It was such a special moment.
I remember these moments as clearly as if it was yesterday.

Yup, he grabbed my butt :)
I remember just resting my head on him. No direction, just comfort.

Our beautiful reception venue
I loved that we were always surrounded by friends & family.

Day 17 - an art piece

I love art in many forms, so I find it hard to choose one piece.
So instead, I will use this theme to show one artist we all miss in the fashion world.
Alexander Mcqueen.
What a loss we have all suffered in losing such a dreamer.

From the final collection
The art in his fashion is breathtaking and I worry we will never see such genius again.

Day 12 - something you are OCD about

I really am not much of an OCD kind of person - since I need control over EVERYTHING - there's no specific thing that I can really say I am compulsive about..
But if you ask my husband, I am pretty sure his answers will be that my OCD is how to fold towels..
It's strange I know, but that's the only thing I can think of :p
