Like I mentioned yesterday, you “meet” the most amazing people on the internet (I should know, I met Hubs that way!). Nicole Fryling is one such person. Mama to Cedar and Sequoia, partner to Steve, postpartum doula, and extract manager at Fungi Perfecti in Olympia, Washington, she also doles out inspired pearls of wisdom on her blog Howling Wolf.
I love the internet. I really, truly do. And I’m not ashamed to admit it because, oh, the places you’ll go and, my, the people you’ll “meet” whilst traversing its web. Like, say, Canada and its fine folks.
I can’t recall exactly how I came to Jessie Knadler’s blog Rurally Screwed , but I’ve been coming back to it again and again ever since. A former Manhattanite who left the big city for love in a small southern Virginia town, Jessie is a new mom (baby June and I share a July birthday!), wife to Jake (who just shipped out to Afghanistan for at least a year), a writer with a killer wit and a keen eye for finding the humor (and the crazy!) in her new surroundings, and, now, co-author of a gorgeous cookbook!
Mitzi! I plugged in #’s 1-171 in the random number generator widget and it gave me #2! Congrats Mitzi. I’ll be sending Haley, Amy’s publicist, your way for mailing contact info.
