The Best Policy

My daughter, Samantha, is doing a guest post today, as she does every Friday.

Well, I was going to write a fantastic post about this delicious gnocchi I made... and it was going to look like this...

Doesn't that look delectable? Don't you want to know how it turned out?
The truth is, not so great.  Gnocchi is hard to make, and unless you have an old Italian grandmother to teach you the secret, it takes a lot of tries to get it right.  This being my first try... well, I think you can imagine.  (PS- Mad props to my finace, who wanted so badly for me to be happy that he asked for seconds. Bless his heart.  And his iron stomach.)

You know what I love about blogs? Honesty.  They weren't kidding (whoever they are) when they said, "Honesty is the best policy."  It's absolutely true, especially with blogs.  Some of my very favorite blogs are incredibly honest in their posts, from fretting about cankles, getting ready to send your baby to kindergarden, or failures in business prospects.  This blog even has had its moments of poignant honesty, which make me particularly proud.

So, in all honesty?  I want to treat all of you dear readers to something a little better than my first-try at gnocchi.  So I'm going to be puttering around my kitchen, the sewing machine, and the antiques market to bring you the very best.  Is that alright with y'all?

(I felt this picture went appropriately with my use of the word "y'all."  I just had to break the seriousness for a moment.  Forgive me.)

Next Friday, I'll have a very special Pinterest pick on weddings because, guess what; next Friday, I'm getting married.  It's hard to believe that it's here already, but so it is.

Happy weekend, and happing pinning (and cooking, and crafting, and sewing, and writing)!



  1. Excellent post Samantha. Are you willing to share the recipe, so that I can try it?

  2. I hope your week goes smoothly so you can enjoy every minute leading up to your wedding! Best wishes and enjoy your day!

  3. Thinking of you and wishing you a beautiful day as you begin your married life.
