Last week the July/August issue of Victoria was delivered to our editorial offices. This issue was close to going to press when I started working with the magazine, so you won't find my byline in this issue. But I hope you will look for my name in the masthead! I was so excited to share the magazine with Joe and the children. We celebrated the milestone over the weekend by making the blue-ribbon Peach and Raspberry Pie recipe featured on pages 76 and 85 of this issue. With fresh peaches from a farmer's market and a pretty crust cut out by Emma, a slice of pie served a la mode provided a sweet celebration of the fruits of our labor. Look for the July/August issue on the newsstand, or subscribe by clicking the magazine title below the photo. Computer problems have me behind on posting, but look for travel, party and craft photos as soon as I can upload again.
Congratulations to Jody, who won the generous Mother's Day giveaway from The Pajama Company. Jody will be welcoming a new baby in a few weeks, so I hope she will feel pampered in the stylish Lovebirds capri set from The Cat's Pajamas. Jody, please e-mail me or leave a comment below.
