Sara sent a Mother’s Day card from Spain. She wrote a lovely note that made me miss her all the more, and included an apology for the card. ” …card giving isn’t really a ‘thing’ in Sevilla. It was either this or one that said ‘I ❤ Mami’ on the front”:
I had to laugh, because as soon as I saw this card I thought “PUNCHES!”

Pretty amazing, wouldn’t you say? And she promises to hand-deliver my gift when next we meet.
From the other side of the world I received a box with awesome spices (cardamom, garam masala and cardamom), Tim Tams (perhaps the most amazing cookies in the world) and (drum roll please) TWO Chocolate Wombats. Yep, you read that right. Since rabbits are something of a pest in Australia the government implored chocolate companies not to glorify them. I have to admit that Chocolate Wombats are Pretty Darn Cute.
Closer to home, my son glazed a pair of plates for me that his eldest sister threw on the wheel but never finished. What a team! We had a wonderful brunch at Longhi’s (I had the fritatta, a Mimosa, and a French Press of Maui Mokka) and then he studied for AP exams. Oh, these are good days.
