Two items of note

photo by John Kernick for Martha Stewart (not a traditional fasnacht, but these donuts will have to do)


1.  Hannah is blogging again, and I have a feeling if you like reading Bee you're going to love her new blog that's along the same lines sharing her life lessons.  Check out Majoring in Me- she already has a darling free print up for the taking!

2.  Today is Fasnacht day (the PA dutch version of Shrove Tuesday).  Instead of pancakes or king cake or other Mardis Gras/Fat Tuesday/Shrove Tuesday fare, the Pennsylvania crowd eats donuts.  Little things like this remind me of my Pennsylvania childhood and make me proud to give it a nod every once in a while.  Although a traditional fasnacht will be hard to come by in Utah, a trip for some donuts is definitely on today's to-do list.   I recommend pretending you have ties to PA for the day and indulging in a donut.

Thanks for the shout out, Christina.

It was so good to talk to you yesterday. That break in between get-togethers was much too long.

I have been missing PA so very much lately. I no longer have any family there so no visiting is needed. But I miss it;)
