My ‘Guest Room’ Apology

The Guest Room Apology From Your Mama Friend

I’m part of a few ‘Mommy Groups’ over on Facebook, and occassionally I come across some amazing posts. The following post as an open letter to a dear friend about her guest room was shared in the Bringing Up the Littles by Allison Wilson Wright; and she gave me permission to share it with you. She captures the changes in friendship and life that having children can have, and I love her way with words and the delicate story she shares.

Welcome to

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I collect recipes. Physical cards, cookbooks, pins, printed blogs, you name it.

My website was created as a resource for anyone who is interested in good food, new drinks, some how-to, and every day cooking in particular. I create step by step recipes that anyone can follow. Recipes here cover all types of cuisine from all around the world and local specialties from many different regions. There are recipes for all occasions, including holiday traditions, party food, kid approved snacks, picnic food, freezer meals, and formal dining. Sprinkled in are some parenting tips and stories, life as a military family, and some green living hacks.

I love comments, and hope that you will enjoy your visit!
