When you have a relatively insane life like I do (single mom of 3, starting up a business, working almost non-stop, etc, etc) you genuinely appreciate the small things. Don’t get me wrong, I also appreciate the big things such a week long all expenses paid vacation to Italy or something to that effect, however I digress. In this fast paced life, I put a premium on food – good food at that. I have found my new guilty pleasure at Tapenade in Discovery Primea.
Now, for those who are thinking of a mother’s day gift for me (hint, hint), I strongly suggest a meal at Tapenade. Good thing that they have a special package just for Mother’s Day 2015!
