I won’t swear to this but I don’t believe I experienced the buttery goodness of an avocado until my family made the move to Arizona when I was 13. Because back in the day, (a) ‘seasonal’ really did mean seasonal – as in, if it’s not in season in my hometown, it’s not on the store shelves and (b) Walla Walla isn’t an avocado growing climate, (c) I’m certain that if avocados were available ‘in season’, my family couldn’t afford them and most importantly, (d) Avocados are green. With knarly, bumpy skins. And they are soft and squishy. My grade school self said ‘Gross!’

Happy Anniversary Professor . . . you are the love of my life, my true North, my rock, my best friend . . . it is hard to believe that 14 years have come and gone . . . And I wouldn’t trade them for all the money in the world because really, what we have . . . what we share . . . cannot be purchased with any amount of money, silver or gold . . .
