I am not usually not prone to brag but I'm making an exception because I am bursting with excitement. This exciting thing is also the reason that there will not be a blog today about anything culinary.
My daughter Kate is, as you know, a tennis player. This weekend she has been playing in a national tennis tournament in Philadelphia. Not just anybody gets to play in this tournament. She played in it last year too but it didn't go very well. This year is a totally different story. She has won two matches. This is a huge deal and Ted and I are so proud of her that we are beside ourselves.
The "Run for the Roses" (to use an equestrian term) has ended today with a loss to a four star player (which means she's a lot better than Kate) but Kate had two wins to get to this point. As I said. This is huge.
So, we are driving back to Pittsburgh tomorrow after a stop at King of Prussia Mall. This weekend deserves a little celebration.
