Last summer, I went to a party with Rick Bayless, the king of Mexican street food.  He gave a presentation on guacamole and ways to change it up.  So, here is my fall rendition of the one food I might not be able to live without…guacamole.  The combination of sweet and heat and smooth and crunchy textures will make make you want to eat the whole batch yourself….not that I did that… 😉  The contrast of the rich colors make Pomegranate Guacamole a visual feast as well.

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!

My Work From Home Style

Because I’ve worked from home for 24 years, either freelancing PR, event planning, volunteering or blogging, WFH or Work From Home attire is not new to me.  While there are days I stay in workout clothes, I get much accomplished when I get dressed for the day!
