Been over and read it the other day. FABULOUS!


That whirlwind tour through your adverntursome life left me breathless! You do have marvelous stories to tell. How inspiring!!


Oooh, always love your adventures!! On my way!!! xo


I just wanted to stop by here and thank you, too. Tara, you are one gifted, passionate woman. I feel blessed to have your words on my blog. I feel blessed to know you. Thank you.


I just came from Relyn's. You words have sucked me in and now I can see I will be on a long list of those waiting for that novel.

Tara Bradford

Never too late! Thank you!

Am I too late? I will be popping by Relyn's later anyway. Many thanks for alerting me to this invitation. I hope I'm not too late.

Greetings from London.

Tara Bradford

Sarah, I appreciate your kind comment. Thanks for writing and for visiting Paris Parfait.

Tara Bradford

Thank you, dear adventure-bound-for-Rome photographer girl! xo

Tara Bradford

Yoli, thank you!

Tara Bradford

Carol, thank you for the lovely compliment!

Tara Bradford

I think you're too good to me, dear Yoli. Merci, merci, MERCI! xo

Tara Bradford

Marilyn, maybe it's because I grew up in a small town, but since childhood, I was longing to travel and explore new horizons. Thanks for the kind words.

Christina, it's an old photo; taken with my little pocket camera, I think in Dec. 2006. Of course now I look at it and see the flash reflection and I wish I'd taken another shot, sans flash. But I was being jostled by holiday crowds and was loaded down with packages myself, so just wanted to get out of there.

Tara Bradford

Cheryl, thanks for the thoughtful comments. We never know what's around the corner, so we'd best take advantage of every opportunity we can, while we can.

Tara Bradford

Sue, thanks for the kudos! I'm writing as fast as I can. :)

Tara Bradford

Thank you, Chris!

You mean you don't eat popcorn at the office?

I remember reading Helen Keller's story when I was a little girl and being amazed by her persistence and courage. Yes, we all must learn to take more risks and fully live our lives. Sometimes we get so busy, we forget to appreciate things. Thanks for the kind words. Love to you too! xo

Tara Bradford

Ah, the "slightly" older sister bit made me smile. Thank you. The admiration is mutual, as you know. xo

Tara Bradford

Don't tempt me; I might accept! :) xo


I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.



tara--it's a marvelous interview and i hope you DO decide to come here to finish your book because i'd love to hear more of these stories in person!!



I feel very lucky to have been able to hear some of your stories first hand. You are a kindred spirit to me, like a wiser and more eloquent (slightly) older sister who I look up to and admire and whose journey helps me make some sense of my own. I cannot wait to read your book!

I feel so absolutely ridiculous some days with my complaints...what have I to worry about, when a woman like Helen Keller woke up everyday to greet her world with that kind of perception.
I'm reeling not just at the quote, but the source. We all have so much to learn about embracing the adventure of our lives. Live while we are alive.

Off now to the fire, to sit all cosy by it and read your post. I know I'll enjoy this one.
Love to you!


I didn't really make popcorn. I'm at the office.


okay, NOVEL?!

And that banner knocks me out. Great image.

okay, off to the guest blogger. made popcorn, even.


I'll go over there right now!


I was at work when I read your comment and had to wait until I arrived home tonight, to wander on over and read :) Lovely piece, Tara xo


Wowee Tara, I thought I'd had adventures, but mine are positively boring along side yours. Hurry up and write. I want to read more! :-)

Cheryl de los Reyes Cruz

I love your photo, as always. And then I read the quote you added underneath. Was it a coincidence, I wondered, that "life is either a daring adventure or nothing," is J.'s personal motto and what we spent so much time talking about a few days ago? Probably not because when I read your interview I was nearly in tears. Life is amazing. Your life is amazing. I have to take more chances. Thanks for the inspiration.


OMGoodness! This picture is lovely! I think I'm drooling! Headed to Relyn's!


On my way...


I am speechless at the adventures. Not many women would put themselves out there in life to experience all that you wrote about. We can dream through your words. I also will be looking forward to that book.


You have left me speechless. I just left a message there but I have to leave one here too. You are amazing dear lady. People only dream of a life that well lived but few have the courage to actually live it. Because it does take courage, self respect and an iron will to go achieve things on your own terms. Bravo Tara! I am lining up for the book.


Oh I am running over there now! Lovely picture!


Gorgeous pictures throughout Tara! ! !
