Thank You For Celebrating Our 500th Party With Us!
Last week, if you were with us, you know that we celebrated a blogging milestone with the publication of our 500th Friendship Friday post. Thanks to all of you who left such nice comments and helped make the occasion so special. It was quite an emotional week for me!
If you haven’t had a chance to visit and link up, please do so – the party is live for another week!
Meet Our Friend Of The Week –
If you were born and raised on a Caribbean island and moved to the United States later in life, where would you live? The first thing that comes to mind is a warm weather state where sun and surf are a natural part of the landscape, but not Maria. This Caribbean city dweller fell in love with a Midwestern crop farmer and is now an integral part of a close-knit Minnesota community where farming and gardening fills her days!
If you’re intrigued by Maria’s story so far, then you are going to love Trowel And Seed, the blog where Maria captures all of her state-side adventures!
Exploring Maria’s blog is a fun and revelatory experience. The more you read, the more respect you’ll have for this real Renaissance woman who is so full of surprises and depth.
Maria is a Master Gardner, so reading about her experiences growing dahlias and looking at the incredible dahlias she grew this October was pure joy! However, you might be surprised to learn that Maria formerly served in the US Army… that she lost all of her possessions in a fire during her final military move… and the reason why the vase that survived the fire is particularly significant to her.
You might also be surprised to learn that Maria is a masterful chef and baker! This year, she’s been blessed by an abundance of figs, and she’s been using them in every possible recipe and form she can find! For October, a month of transition, she created an incredible Cardamom Custard Fig Tart that looks so artistic, it’s almost too beautiful too eat! But, preserve the beauty of this dessert in with a few photos and enjoy the luscious, bright tastes of the season!
Making new friends and deepening existing relationships is a joy. Be sure to visit Maria this week, explore her blog, leave her some comment love, and congratulate her for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy!
