Hello, my name is Carlyn, this is a pic of me and my husband Bill today. We live along Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa, Fl, the world’s longest sidewalk. I am a cancer survivor recently let go from a well paid corporate position reminding me I’m not in charge!
Blind faith is nothing new to me, my life changes paths suddenly, without warning often. I always see the upside in everything and realized I do not want to spend the rest of my life stressed out trying to make someone else wealthy. Money should never be that important!
Encouraged by friends who enjoy my writing and photography I feel like WTH, time to do something completely NEW! I am in a unique position, in possession of something guarded for nearly a decade by the women in my family, and I am going to share it here. On my blog!
I do’s in 1991 after meeting in 1983.
Bill has a lawn maintenance and landscaping business. We have been together since 1983 after meeting in a bar a few blocks from our current home. We live one block away from the home where Bill was raised, he likes it here off the sidewalk and never ventures far!
As a family we share a love affair with food! We come from a long line of Foodies, my Philadelphia Main Line matriarch grandmothers coveted their recipes, swearing their house staff to secrecy while Bill’s grandmother, cooking on a pot bellied stove in Tennessee, became known for her baking.
When my mother passed I inherited my sides private cookbooks! Bill’s mom passed her mother’s to him. My plan is to ala Julia and Julia cook and bake my way through their lovely dribbles and scribbles. Like any good old cookbook, it’s not hard to know where to start! The pages with the most spills!
Together Bill and I have developed recipes our friends love, we will be sharing them here too.
I can’t thank you enough for stopping by and hope you will sign-up as a V.I. P. to receive exclusive updates on all the Foodie Fun!
Welcome to Off The Sidewalk – Thanks for visiting and learning a little more about us!
With a smile,
Bill and Carlyn 🙂
