Ever have moments where you just have to pinch yourself? Moments when you can’t quite believe that the something wonderful that is happening, is in fact, actually, happening?
Having Shauna Niequest agree to read my book, then provide a blurb about it, and then host the blog tour, on her blog, a few of those pinchable moments for me. Especially considering she was in the same boat as me-juggling kids, family, work, a book deadline and a book release. You see, Shauna also has a book filled with stories, and recipes, coming out on April 1. A wonderful, delicious, honest, encouraging, transparent, book, entitled Bread &Wine, A Love Letter to Life Around the Table, with Recipes, (an advance copy of which I have had the great joy of reading during Lent.)
And then there was the moment- the icing on the cake -.
You see, I was shopping for the ingredients to Shauna’s Mango Chicken Curry recipe, when I got a Tweet from her, saying that her post, about A Homemade Year, was live. I just about did a happy dance, right there, in the exotic food aisle.
