Beautiful bakes!  Your son/daughter I'm sure will appreciate your goodies.

Nice to see you posting again.

Best wishes.

They all look delicious but that last pictures looks especially scrumptious!

My son said the crisps were very tasty and he finished half of them as soon as he got the mail. I was very happy to hear that but I'd like to hear from him more often...

to go with the nostalgic smile!  My Mom doesn't send me breads, but her butter tarts are the same gift from the heart as your breads are for your son.

Thank you so much for sharing the gorgeous bakes (how am I going to explain wanting a pasta attachment when I don't eat pasta?!), and the bittersweet emotions that went with them.

Now - where do we sent a note to remind that son of yours to call his Momma?!

All the best to you and yours, Yippee - and keep baking happy!

I facetimed my mom in Hong Kong today.  Now knowing how if feels not getting a phone call from my son, I want to talk to her more often, even though we talk almost every day.  She used to send me parcels of pretty dresses from home. But it never occurred to me that it's her way of saying she missed me.   I guess there is something you don't really understand until you become a parent.  I'm glad it's not too late...

Thanks for your comment, Laurie.  It reminds me to take a moment to reflect on life.
