Is it really November 7th? Almost two weeks since I posted last? How did that happen? Well, I know what happened...life.
And honestly, even though I have little posts running through my head all the time, none of them seem complete enough for an actual post. And this month, I have a feeling, will continue to be a busy busy one. And then there was one time on Twitter when I oversaw someone mentioning that she didn't like to post until she had time to bloghop (and others agreed). Pshhht. Sadly that would mean I would never post these days. Wahhhhhhh (please don't comment on this in the comments, I already know the answer).
So, winners for Maman's Homesick Pie giveaway!
Terri B. who said that one of her fondest memories was coming home from church on Sundays to a house smelling of pot roast and potatoes. "That smell always said "home" to me."
Laura who remembered when she and her mom and sisters would make monkey bread together on Saturday mornings: "My siblings and I were responsible for rolling the dough into balls and covering them in cinnamon and sugar, while my mom would make the 'goop' (butter, sugar, vanilla) on the stove. I hope to do the same with my kids!"
Care who "was just having a conversation about how some meals from my childhood just can't be created because the time and place is gone. I still crave my mom's sloppy-joes and they weren't fancy but I can't get it right."
Hope you all enjoy the book!!
And then...we took little Chickpea Banana to have her six month portraits. We did get two decent shots, but some of the outtakes. Let's just say that she was NOT having it. No matter how many funny faces and voices and songs I tried. Not even daddy could get a smile! Maybe at 9 months...
Life is busy, but not too busy for some laughs...
