from behind the pine curtain

"Soup's on!"

The missing pound cake recipe that is destined to be a family heirloom, as soon as we can find it among countless stashes of newspaper clippings and quickly jotted notes.

A response to my statement that, no, we aren't having kids just yet: "well, that's okay. I was an old mother too." GREAT. THANK YOU.

Collective laughter when my husband asked if anybody wanted "pop" from the grocery store.

Repeated viewings of Grandaddy's second great love: Diana Krall in Rio de Janeiro.

Sharing more connections than differences, as is the case when you are lucky enough to be related to such folks.


  1. we are the lucky ones, Anna Bannana :)

  2. I hadn't read this until now - it made me cry. I love you guys so much. My sincerest apologies for whoever made the motherhood comment :)

  3. and, Grandmomma would get onto me for not sending ya'll a "thank you" note for all the wonderful fun things during my "episode".
