There Are Times when Life Becomes Much More Important Than Blogging . . .

My lovely and gracious step-mother, Norma Noel Denny, passed away yesterday. She was a wonderful companion to my father, and much loved by all of our family. I will be taking time off from the blog so I can be with my family during this time.

(Since I was already going to be away part of next week to participate in a panel on foodblogging at the SXSW Music, Film and Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas, it might be more than a week before I manage to update the blog, but I’ll be back as soon as I can.)

  17. Kalyn, I’m so sorry for your loss. My mom was Norma also – and my mother-in-law – both wonderful ladies, as I’m sure your Norma was also. We’ll miss you, but you need to do what you need to do, and all my sympathies for you and your family now.
