In Memory of Barbara

Poppy Freedom 

Earlier this week I learned that a very dear, cherished friend and food blogger, Barbara Harris passed away.

Dearest Barbara,

There is a new star in the sky. May you shine brighter than all of them! You were truly cherished & loved by many in our food blogging community. Filled with grace and dignity you just rocked! Rest in peace, dearest Barbara!


I was rather shaken by the news and took some time out to simply reassess and sort my thoughts. I spent a day on some fields taking in the beauty of these poppies.

Life is so precious and we need to take more than just a moment to indulge in it. Friends, family and life - in honor of a strong and vivacious person who lived her life to the fullest. Thank you for being such a inspiration to so many of us, Barbara.

    Life is never the same when our loved ones are taken away but their love and passion and memories make us stronger and help us to live our life in a much better way..
