it happened before Christmas ..
that these sweet young folks traveled half way 'round the world from a land unlike our own, back to northern california to visit family and friends they hold dear as family. wendy & tim. wendy's mother planned a pre-Christmas gathering and we were all too ready to wrap our arms & hearts around this sweetest couple. i was asked to bring pie.
an apple pie with a crumble crust
and heavy dusting of powder,
baked in a spring form pan.
amazingly .. overnight little trees
took seed and sprouted
for the occasion.
perfectly imperfect .. and delish.
it was further decided they'd come over to our house for coffee the next morning a bit before 7am. and so they did. along with coffee we had a pound of bacon and a breakfast casserole waiting for their willing taste buds. i think ... i hope ... they had their fill of pork while back in the good ole' USofA. it'll be too long (or so it seems)
before we see them again.
missed - - they are missed.
p.s. for those who inquired in message or email :: no, this lovely young woman is not my daughter. this daughter belongs to a dear friend named claudia. *my* daughter? we haven't seen her in nearly 5 years .. you can read more about that woe by clicking the 'grief' link on my sidebar. ♥
