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. ;)

Emily November 5, 2012 at 8:33 pm

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!!
-Emily from Minnesota
