Random note: handmade gifts from the kids
I have a soft mushy spot in my heart for macaroni art and finger painting!. Aliyah use to make things like this when she was younger ( she's 15 now)
But I did'nt realize how much I missed getting these tokens of love form my kids until Zaria,age5 and Joshua,age 4 brought their artwork home ( the macaroni I love you is the back of Zaria's card and the one with the hand print is Joshua's card . Man is he going to be tall! O.k enough digressing!). Kids give of themselves so freely and they are not inhibited like
we grow to be as adults . Joshua will be 5 in August and Zaria is going to be 6 in June and I would like to just hold on to these moments of them for just
a little while longer.
About This blog
My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
