No, it's not what you're thinking... I did not rush out and buy a third Kitchenaid mixer today. Now, that doesn't mean I wouldn't LOVE to own this sweet little Lavender number. But no. This mixer isn't mine. However, I did own that glass bowl! You see, it's the very same Extra glass bowl I mentioned in this Post last week.
If you remember, after picking up a stainless steel bowl for my 90th anniversary edition Kitchenaid, I casually asked if anyone reading might need my Spare glass bowl. Of course, I was kidding. However, after receiving the nicest e-mail from Erinne, the first of my readers that promised to give it a good home, I thought, Why not!?
Although I offered to gift my glass bowl to her without the promise of anything in return, I received a package yesterday filled with the most delightful goodies native to Erinne's part of the country. I promise to show them to you in a future post. But today, I want to introduce you to Erinne. I think she is a special, and truly unique young lady. Erinne's the kind of person you just don't meet every day!
After hearing her story, Erinne reminds me of a Soldier in the same way that I'm grateful they're out there doing the scary, heartbreaking and difficult things I cannot do. I would say that I sleep better knowing they're out there doing the things I cannot do; however, since one of those soldiers happens to be my Ranger, you know I don't sleep much at all. But I digress...
What follows is one of the conversations Erinne and I had via e-mail. It occurred to me as I read our exchange for a second time, that it sounded a bit like an interview. And therefore, perfect for sharing with you!
Because I believe her story to be so compelling, I asked Erinne this morning if she would approve of my introducing her to you. Because she said yes, You are in for a treat!
