JAM wings it's way to NEW YORK

Yes, that's right ... I am parting with a lovely little jar of our homemade Apricot Jam ... and it's soon going to be winging it's way to NEW YORK.

I can hardly believe it ... coast-to-coast for my little gem!

During the read-along earlier this year with author BRENE BROWN, and her amazing "I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME (but it isn't)" book, I made several friends ... fellow sojourners on a similar path at this point in our lives. Thank you, Brene, for bringing so many of us together in friendship.

So ... this first jar of jam is heading to Corin ...

And if I get an address from sweet Karen ... she'll get one, too !!!

This is so darn fun; I can't believe it. I think I'm now a JAM & PRESERVE convert. {shhh ... please don't tell my Church ...}

With a happy sigh of contentment, that we can share our gifts with one another ...

OMG! I didnt expect to see myself here when I logged on. I love the photo of "my jam" being made :) Thanks! Also, the concept behind the actual sharing is what is neat. Kind of seems old fashioned, which is nice.

Thanks, Corin. not only did I enjoy the whole Zen process of MAKING the jam, there is an entirely other ZEN process in the sharing of the jam. I owe it all to Victoria, who taught me to make Jam. :-) We're fortunate to have her living here on "the Lane", 'cause she's a true GEM of a friend. AND SPEAKING OF OLD FASHIONED - do you know how hard it's getting to find jars & rings & seals for bottling up our goodies? I guess the big markets think it's too OLD FASHIONED ... very sad. So I am glad you appreciate it ...
