    I just popped in to get a pumpkin bread recipe from you and learned your fantastic news!! I could not be happier, and was hoping that’s where the two of you were headed. I’ve been a regular reader for over a year now and I just love you! Weird how that can work in the blog world.
    I am a new mother-in-law because our daughter got married 2 weeks ago. That day was one of the best days of my life, to include my own marriage and my daughter’s birth. You are on a beautiful journey. Enjoy the process. I promise that when you walk down the aisle all the details will fall into place and the ones that don’t, won’t matter anymore. Your day will be beautiful. I look forward to hearing the whole story!
    Now, back to the pumpkin bread. I think I’ll add chocolate chips to celebrate…like I need a reason to add chocolate chips. πŸ˜‰

    Jenna,
    I have been reading since you lived in Florida and you’ve been a constant inspiration to me in both cooking and writing. I found you initially through kath’s blog and then a few days later googled “reading little house in the big woods older than 20” because I wanted to make sure I wasn’t crazy…..I probably still am BUT your blog came up so I was like “ok, cool, I should probably stick with reading this blog since she does it too.” anyway I just want to say your book is beautiful (read it in 2 hours: laughed, cried, amazing) and I am overjoyed that you are so overjoyed. Thanks for being brave enough to put your life out there via the internet and print because it is truly wonderful. Wishing you the best!!

    Congratulations, Jenna! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog over the past year; your recipes are great! But my favorite posts are the ones where you talk about your life and your faith. I feel like we are kindred spirits! And so I’ve been hoping for months that you and Adam would tie the knot. πŸ™‚ I wish you the best and pray for God’s blessing on your marriage!

    Oh Jenna, what a sweet story! I have to tell you, my fiance and I are getting married at the Philo Apple Farm where you were taken. Booneville/Philo/Anderson Valley is a magical little corner of the world. It makes me happy to hear that you two love it as much as we do! Enjoy this time and the very best of luck! xoxo

    Congrats! I have been reading your blog since your culinary days and have walked (from a distance and via the internet) with you through the death of your brother and breakup with your previous boyfriend. I am so happy for you and pray God’s richest blessings on this next life phase! Marrying your best friend is the best life decision EVER. You will love it.
