I am packing up cookbooks (all billion of them), and occasionally I’ll flip one open to see if it’s inscribed. I just had to share this one, scrawled inside Southern Living Easy Entertaining. A prophecy, almost, of what our new home will become… . (Also an exhibit in a long list of evidence proving I was gifted with a wonderful mother.)
Johanna — May your many guests, family and friends find your home a welcome retreat. Good friends, lots of laughter and yummy food, and of course, a bouquet or two of fresh flowers—makes a lovely occasion of every meal. Enjoy your kitchen! I love you, Mother (2003).
(We went by to see the house today. Look for a post later with updated pictures. It is coming along rapidly!)
