post #1 here.) I was a food writer totally embedded into the New Hampshire and New England food scene. My favorite restaurants knew me by name, I knew where to buy the best pastries, and I had my favorite farm stands and food shops. Plus, I had made life-long friends I would terribly miss. All of which added up to my being very nervous about moving halfway across the country.
Life has changed a lot in three years. Now I have a new husband (and last name to go with him), a downtown apartment home in Topeka, and new important people in my life. I also have my favorite area restaurants, food shops, and farmer's markets. That's one of the nice things about the foodie world...you can always find someone to talk with about food.
I was excited three years ago at all of the possibilities my new life would offer. Turns out, those possibilities went beyond my wildest dreams. Yes, I miss New England from time to time. But I adore my city home on the prairie.
