Hi Everyone,

I hope this post finds you well.

I am officially 3 months post heart transplant and working hard on my recovery so I can get back to posting the blog full time and sharing my tablescapes, recipes and stories with all of my members.

When the doctors told me that the full recovery from this major surgery takes a year, I thought that wouldn’t apply to me but found out it does. It is a long journey to complete recovery. I have had a few bumps in the road, but nothing will stand in my way to reach my goal.

I miss all of my members and want to thank so many of you for the get well cards. Your well wishes are so deeply appreciated.

I still don’t have enough strength to prepare a new tablescape, so for today in honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am reposting my Fiesta Night.

I hope Fiesta Night gives you some ideas to help you with your Cinco de Mayo tablescape or menu. It was one of my favorite posts, especially the cactus pretzel rods and Mexican corn.

      I am trying so hard to get stronger, but some days my body doesn’t agree with my mind and wants to take a long nap. I am trying to cope with the ups and downs.

    Wishing you well Diane, and thank you for thinking of us, for reposting this, I did not see it last year. You are inspiring me more now, not just for tablescaping and recipes, but for going after goals no matter what!

    Hi,Diane. So happy to see a post from you today. I am 3 years post open heart surgery for a mitral valve repair and know a small piece of the challenges you have been facing. Just be good to yourself, follow instructions and know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. You have a fan club keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Love your repost today and look forward to seeing your name pop up in my email whenever you are able.
