My name is Kathleen and I live in West Palm Beach, Florida. I am retired. I was born in Harford, Connecticut and moved to Florida when I was 13. After starting college I flippantly left and was hired by TWA (Trans World Airlines) as a Flight Attendant and lived in New York while working for TWA for twenty-two years, flying mostly International flights and sometimes domestically. If I wasn’t traveling for work I was somewhere on vacation at all times. During that time I enhanced my photography skills on five continents, gardened in NYC (they called my apartment “The Jungle”), learned to scuba dive and snow ski , and of course cooked some fine meals for some famous, infamous and wonderful people.
When I retired from TWA I entered the world of real estate (like every other Floridian) but was drawn to work for new home builders. Spent about 15 years being a Design Coordinator for a number of builders here in South Florida.
Other areas of expertise (things I like to do) include working at a farm stand in Glastonbury, Connecticut selling fruits and vegetables, a fabulous bakery in Lake Park, Florida eating and selling delicious breads and treats. There was some time spent as a model in Palm Beach and New York and a part-time position as a sound-tech for ITN for news events in New York.
The things I liked in the past I like now. I don’t travel as much as I would like. I wonder if my knees could survive water skiing or snow skiing? I cook and bake almost everyday. I have a garden, plenty of flowers, herbs and a good part of the year tomatoes and hopefully more vegetables this year. I am learning how to photograph food for this blog (slowly).
