writingmeg I know it's still two months away, but a little someone's birthday invites arrived today and How can my baby be turning 1?! I know I'm going to be very emotional getting to April, what with Ollie's #prematurity and my #preeclampsia, but it is -- more than anything, everything! -- an absolute celebration. And I can't wait to see the look on his face when his beloved "Muppets" are everywhere (in balloon form, that is). 22h

writingmeg Met with Joyce White, a very nice and knowledgable food historian, for a feature today. She shared the cutest desserts with me: all traditional Maryland recipes! Anyone heard of white potato pie? I hadn't, but it was devoured in about two seconds. (In my defense, it was a mini-pie.) 5d
  •   katrynka25 I want to hear more about white potato pie! Is is sweet or savory? Can your articles be found on the Internet? 5d
  •   writingmeg @katrynka25 White potato pie (bottom left in photo) is sweet with a texture similar to pumpkin pie -- delicious! My article will be online at the end of the month, but you can check out the recipe on Joyce's blog: www.atasteofhistory.net 5d

writingmeg Very long day. The sort that includes putting on pajamas at 6pm and, though you miss him so much during the day, feeling grateful for the quiet when your son slips off to sleep early. Now I'm happily returning to @adonnrowley's The Ramblers, which is (and officially out on Tuesday!) 7d
  •   adonnrowley Oh my goodness!! So happy to see you are reading this! Hope you love it!! 7d

writingmeg Went outside for about five minutes yesterday -- my first time outdoors in three days! Ollie wasn't too interested in the snow, but looked darn cute out there. Neighborhood is still not plowed and treacherous, so guess it's another work from home day. Hopefully this monkey cooperates Mama needs to write! 2w

writingmeg So glad we got out a bit to see my family and have a meal (in public!) yesterday before this blizzard arrives. This little guy is finally feeling a bit better and slept well last night. I'm actually up before him today?! And now to write from home as we wait for the first flakes to fall. 3w
