While I was away, the following was accomplished:
-I spent my thirty-seventh birthday in Croatia, visiting the town my great-grandparents left to begin a new life under the stars and stripes.
-I read the latest Vanity Fair and was frightened by Madonna's footwear.
-Theo learned to say "yucky."
-I picked a winner from your comments on my last post. Congratulations to our big winner, Erin, who I'm certain will thoroughly appreciate receiving some German treats. Erin, leave a comment or send me an e-mail with any special requests. I loved reading all of your responses to my question. I'm mulling over a post on this topic. I know you can't wait.
