A couple of weeks ago I was at the Chapel Market…..and the sun was shining in through these amazing windows and the boxes were unpacked and the tables were filled and I stood in the middle of the room….holding this incredible vintage sign and laughing and talking to a group of friends….when all of a sudden I stopped.

I put up my hands and (with my charm bracelet jingling)…..said….Can we just pause?

Can we take a moment?

I want to remember this….all of this.  I want to pause and appreciate and stop for a second…..so it can all sink in….

The other day I was an at event and a reader approached me…..

….and we started talking.

Are you surprised?

I started telling a story (please tell me you are surprised again)….and laughing….

….and smiling and waving my hands and jingling my charm bracelet.

And right when I got to the part where I pulled off the foil wrapper…..another lady walked by…..listened for a moment…..and told me that in real life…

….I sounded just like my blog.

After she left…..the reader turned to me and said, ”She reads your blog, too?  Really?….

……and I thought it was just you and me.” :)

Exactly.

So today it’s just you and me…..and a cup of coffee.

Or hot tea.

Or Diet Coke.

Or raisin bagel with homemade apple butter on it.

With a tutorial for chicken wire Christmas trees….

…..and a pinning party.

Did I mention how happy I am…..that today….on this glorious wonderful fall day….when you have a million things to do and a million places to be….

…..you took time for a coffee break. :)

Holiday Recipe Linky Party


I am so thankful you are here.

Really.

I was a little worried that no one would show up.

I was worried that I would be sitting here with the Cheetos and the cheese ball and the fruit and cheese tray…..listening to the Chipmunk Christmas CD.

I mean….I don’t mind a little “Right Down Santa Claus Lane” with Alvin and Simon and Theodore…..

…..but it’s so much better with you here.  :)

 

One of my 2012 recipes that I would totally link at a holiday recipe link party.
