  • One of the best aspects of all of these picnic photo shoots has been spending time with people I love. I sure do have some wonderful people in my life. Love you, buddies! Shown here: Meg Carswell Reilley (an exquisitely gifted photographer), Alisa Carswell Reilley (an incredibly talent graphic designer), @fernworks (a jewelry designer of abundant creativity), and @killaspro (a coffee connoisseur and all around funny guy).

Hear It And Weep


I’m really loving this right now. Listen on a cold winter’s night with something warm to sip and something soft to cuddle.

Yes We Can!

I’m looking for a few good canners. Each book in my series will profile folks who are doing whatever the book topic is about. In this case, it’s home canning and preserving. So, if you’re a canner, or someone in your family cans, or you have a buddy who’s homemade pickles make summer worthwhile, I’d love to connect with them. Either post a comment here, or write me directly at: amadams26@hotmail.com. All it takes is completing a short questionnaire and sending me a good digital photo of your glorious face! Come can with me! (That last sentence seriously deserves strong consideration for “dorkiest blog sentence EVER!” Apologies.)

*Sorry about the hideous quality of the photo. I took it in my quite dark pantry. After, oh, about 18 attempts, this was the best I could capture. You get the gist of what I’m suggesting, though. 

Sunday Splendor

An aromatic welcome.
A mountain of citrus from Glenn’s folks in Florida.
Weighted beauties. 
Blueberry is helping me write the next book.
