LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE…. and one amazing dish for summer!

LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE is my motto and at age 65 I have decided to embark on a new career…selling real estate!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I started getting AARP newsletters and emails! There must be some mistake! I’m still shocked at being considered a senior!?? I’m good with it… know…sticks & stones….But I read about people who have started new careers in their later years and I thought…why not?

Taking the real estate exam was a great feat…lots of math, and as a retired third grade teacher, my math skills were enough to balance my checkbook. But I was determined.

The exam took 4 hours and waiting until the very last second before hitting send…I held my breath. Suddenly a message appeared….YOU PASSED…and then disappeared. WAIT!! WHAT DID IT SAY?? Until my official certificate link came in my email, I didn’t believe it. So yep….I’m a Real Estate Professional with Coldwell Banker Realty in Naples, Florida and LOVING IT!

So for my readers who have loved my recipes…have no fear! I’ll still share simple and delicious recipes and more! I have some new recipes from popular spots in Naples that I’d love to share. Eat like the locals!
