Well, I did it.

Contrary to all of my promises to myself, I moved again. The last time (just a year ago) I vowed to myself, my children and my friends that I would never move again. (Crossing my fingers and whispering, “Maybe.”) It was a promise I meant to keep. But … a super opportunity landed softly at my feet, and here I am again.

Recently my husband and I stopped in a shop close to St. Stephens for a jar of honey. The man we visited annually, Mr. D.C. Rice, died in June, and after we reminisced with his wife about his love and passion for bees, I wanted to extol the benefits of honey in his honor.
