  • But It's Good 1 year ago This picture is one of my favorites from this entire year, even if it was taken just a week ago in an attempt to take a family portrait for our Christmas cards this year. Mabel wasn’t having it, in fact, she cried every time our friends pointed a camera in her direction.  I was hoping a...
  • A Snapshot from Today 2 years ago Mabel and her friend Zoe, scarves around their heads, swords at the ready. When I came out to the backyard with my camera to take their photos, they were in the middle of deciding who was going to be Captain Hook.
  • Life Lately : Since We've Been Back 2 years ago Since we moved back in April, Mabel has started preschool, turned FOUR, and gotten over the shock of living in the States again. There were some major freak-outs when we first got back. Permanence and moving were huge topics… "Mom, are we moving to this playground?" "No, Mabs, we are just...

  • Summer, Fall, and Soup 2 years ago My whole apartment smells like diced onion and garlic right now, a smell I love more then a fancy candle or yummy perfume.  The day feels cheerful because I’m making soup right now.  It’s cold outside and the windows are open; I'm trying my hardest to collect this weather.

Touching, bittersweet, funny, compelling and often informative, "Anna Likes Rice" is one of the high points in my week. I am in the habit of checking everyday (OK, sometimes twice) to see if she has posted anything new. I am never disappointed when Anna shares her heart, her stories, her triumphs and even those times when she stumbles.

When I read Anna's blogs I don't want to stop. She writes as if I am there: she describes emotions, sights, smells & sounds. It's like reading a great novel: when I am finished reading her blogs I want more so sometimes I reread them! Just like Mabel that wants to keep going for more rides in the 'little tiny little blue car'!! And she includes interesting photos to go along with. Thanks Anna for these wonderful updates and anecdotes.
