I am a Brooklyn born gal who trekked into Manhattan at the age of 16 and began a career in the fashion industry working at Harper's Bazaar during the full blaze of the "fashion icons". Upon the birth of my first child I began my second career as full time wife and mother and 25 years later returned to the workforce.
I particularly enjoy Indi & Foreign films along with Masterpiece Theatre and BBC Productions. Some memorable ones are "Into the West", "Like Water for Chocolate" and "Truly, Madly, Deeply"...and of course 'Downtown Abbey!"
My all time favorite book is "The Razor's Edge" (this was also a great movie) and "The Mists of Avalon" and "The Gift of Rain" run neck to neck as close seconds.
As a year-round Westhampton resident, the lifestyle here lends itself to my enjoyment of using local seasonal foods to cook for family and dear friends. For quiet down time, give me a good book or a great film.
