    It Is Well

    Peace. We need it.

    How about when you have lots on your plate and you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed? When things aren’t going your way or you’re facing a challenge.

    Do you quit? How do you rise up from the emotional and physical tolls of life?

    Sometimes (or a lot of times) you gotta talk to yourself, and remind yourself that you don’t have to do this alone.

    Traveling Smart

    Hey, friends! Do you like to travel, but you may be short on time, the work schedule is not as flexible, or the budget isn’t just there yet? If you live in a place where it’s colder, you may already be thinking about your favorite warm spots, or just need to get away to shake off the mundane. I know from experience that having cabin fever isn’t the business, and I need to do something fun between now and summer. That includes traveling!

    I have some tips that may solve your wanderlust.

    Spinach and Ricotta “Meat”-balls

    Have you ever had a meal or bought something from the store and thought to yourself, “I should learn how to make that”.

    A few months ago, I was shopping and found a new frozen meal that became a fave – Spinach and ricotta “meatballs” with linguine. It was so tasty! And since it’s meatless, I was surprised and happy to know it was just as filling, with lots of flavor. So good, I knew I needed to find an easy recipe to make this on my own.

    It’s been a while since I tried a new recipe, so I went to the store, bought the ingredients, and gave it a go.

    DC Restaurant Week 2019

    Does your city / area host a Restaurant Week? It’s a great way to visit new places or try out popular restaurants for a cool price of $35 (3-course dinner) or $22 (lunch)! Found an article about the history. 

    Tuesday night, I met up with my friend (who just moved into the area), and walked over to The Wharf, the new, vibrant section in Southwest DC (only a few blocks away from the Waterfront metro station).  We didn’t have a set location to eat dinner and catch up, but we found out Officina was participating in DC Restaurant Week, so that’s where we ended up.

    According to its’ website, Officina is an Italian-inspired culinary collective.  I liked the ambiance. By the time we left, it was full of patrons, visiting over dinner and drinks.

    Since we didn’t have a reservation, we sat in the cafe / bar section, which was fine.
