Oh, yes I did!
She came all the way east from Washington state arriving Friday in time to get acquainted with the girls.
She's so lovely inside and out. Look at that lining!
And all those beautiful cardinals. I love cardinals.
Susan at My Mother's Apron Strings gives away an apron every single month. I know! That is a lot of aprons. Susan is an amazing gal. She shares many wonderful recipes. Do you know what? She also tucked in some Tahitian vanilla beans for me to try. She says that they are "the best." Susan, thank you so much for both the apron and the beans. I promise that I will not freeze the vanilla beans!
If you read her recent post entitled Gratitude, you'll get much more of a sense of who Susan is than I could possibly convey. When you visit, would you please tell her that I sent you and give her some of that warmth and love that my readers are known for? Cuz you are the best. (And I get told so all the time.)
Oh, you think I should dare to try my apron on? Right. In a month or two. I'm waddling around like a duck just now and so I'd prefer to get back to my svelte self. *Cough* *Sputter* *Choke*
Off to do some packing...
