thank you, a winner & a favorite recipe



• thank you for the wonderful feedback and good advice about my blog. you are such cheerleaders, i love it. you make me feel like my writing is worth reading, which is exactly the motivation i need to head back to the books. merci. i will be putting the pen to the page (or more likely, fingers on the keyboard) more often for the stream of consciousness form of expression i love most. so glad you guys like it too. i'm saving your ideas for days of writer's block, so keep them coming.

• the random winners have been selected. congratulations to krissa, katie and caitlin. please email me your shipping address for a goodie package from my craft closet.

• today i am excited to share one of my favorite newlywed recipes over on giverslog.com. amber was sweet enough to inquire about a dish i made when i was fresh out of the nest. this beloved recipe came to mind because it tastes good, it is simple and inexpensive to make, my husband still loves it and it can be easily dolled up with lemony asparagus, homemade biscuits and garlic mashed potatoes for a supper party.

yay! meatloaf is among my top faves for dinner. i can't wait to try your classy recipe, mart. love the soft boyfriendy tee you're wearing in the photo.. i have one almost just like it from target last year, but it lost its shape in the dryer. sad. (i'm going to try to sew it up nice and trim again though!)

pumped for more stream of consciousness.

Oh so sweet you are. Thanks Marta, I am sending you an email now.

Also can I just say that after reading your post on Benji turning two, my heartstrings are taught, you make me want to have a child to share these fun experiences with. I love the batteries & alarm clock.
