Hometown Nomad: Restaurant Week Leaves Me With A Hunger To Learn More About My City's Food Scene


Today is the last day of Kansas City's Restaurant Week. I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. I figuredon a good meal for a decent price.

However, we were blown away by how much creativity went into both the cooking and presentation of the meals. During our Restaurant Week outings we brainstormed more local eateries to try in the future. Two years ago, I scoffed at the idea of going to Kansas City Restaurant Week.

I felt as though appreciating anything about Kansas City besides it's low cost of living was tantamount to a major betrayal of my time living away from this part of the country. Silly, right?

I urge other recent hometown nomads to give your hometown or county's Restaurant Week a fair chance. Sure, it may not be as glamorous as the Restaurant Week in the Big City in which you relocated from. But, it will help you to appreciate the food scene of your current city.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
