Triple Happiness

This Sunday is Mother's Day, and this year it just happens to fall on my husband's birthday. We'll be doubling up on the celebrating. It'll definitely include one of my favorite things: brunch. What better way to celebrate two events than to pig out on two meals at once! Would it be overdoing it to have two desserts, too?

One more thing making me happy this week - I won the Mother's Day Contest on Stories For Children's Families Matter Blog, for a story I wrote about my mom. And the prize for first place is a necklace. Yippee! You can find my story "A Little of This" here.

Congratulations on your win!

I love your Mother's Day story. I can see why it won, and it makes me hungry. My grandma cooked like that. She did write down recipes for a couple of things, but when she made them, she didn't follow the recipe.

I hope you have a great Mom's Day/Birthday party on Sunday.

What a wonderful tribute to your mom, Adrienne! I wish I could cook like that. I HAVE to use a recipe and even then it might not turn out! :)
I love brunch (especially buffets), too. Go for the two desserts! (I'm sure I will!)

Adrienne,

What a wonderful story, and congratulations for winning 1st place!

I have a friend who has published many personal essays and teaches workshops, etc. She would definitely tell you to shop this around in magazines that publish personal essays.

Sounds to me like you should try at least three desserts off this Sunday's buffet. ; )
