Before babies and blogging, I used to actually go to an office to work. For sixteen years I worked in the travel industry. I did everything from being a travel agent, to managing an agency. When I moved to Florida I got into corporate travel for DJ’s. Yes, the ones you see at the clubs, not the ones on the radio. It was a pretty cool job, even though that type of music is not my thing. I worked with some big artists, and even did some work for some pop artists, arranging their travel to for their tours and gigs.
In 2008 Mr. Mother Thyme was offered a job in Buffalo near my family. We decided to pack up the suntan lotion and leave Florida. The best thing was I was able to keep my job in Florida and work from home in New York. I had the best boss ever. Every so often I would fly to West Palm Beach to check in at the office. I continued doing that until I had the twins.
The one thing I looked forward to each time I headed back to Florida was a Thai Shrimp Salad. It was from the hotel restuarant, so after a long day, I would head back to my room and order this salad that I devoured. Each bite included chopped cilantro, crisp lettuce, and sprouts and chopped peanuts. I couldn’t get enough of it.
I haven’t been back to Florida in several years. But every once in a while, I think about that salad. Since I can’t hop on a plane to go have one, this is the next best thing.Print
