    Aw, I can’t believe you’re able to crank out posts while so sick! Mamas and food bloggers cannot afford to be ill…so tell those nasty viruses to scram. Nurse Liz says so! Congrats on winning the real cream challenge…gorgeous photos, my friend!!! You rocked it! And thanks for the mention, too!!! xx

    You won! Yay, you! Congrats, missy:)

    So very happy that you are finally turning the corner and feeling better. It has made me (not to mention: you) very cranky that you’ve been flu-ish for so long. :/

    It was truly an honor to participate in #recipesfromtheheart for you in honor of your mom. What a wonderful, poignant collection of stories, outpouring of love and roundup of delicious recipes!

    You have been busy despite being sick. That definitely means you are a mom. Congrats on winning. You were way ahead when I went over to vote….and yours was the best. Hope you feel better soon. Too many meh’s make you sound like a goat.
