    Happy Happy Birthday to you!! I hope your day was fabulous – my x-husband always forgot my birthday. One year he went out to his car and got the air freshener and gave it to me. Well…. enough of THAT!

    Your recipe looks so good! I’ve made marinated mushrooms but never olives. I bet they are just delicious, I can’t wait to give this recipe a try!

    I know what that kind of relationship is about. I survived a four year one, lucky enough to find a great man who is patient with my insecurities which linger because of that relationship even after 18 years of marriage. I am so glad that you are out of it and moving on with better things! Blogging is theraputic and even though I am scared to blog about my experiences, your story helps others! And I will help myself to some of these olives too!
