Last month I went to the Big Summer Potluck, where I met all sorts of wonderful women. I’ve been meaning to write a post about it, but have been quite sick and tired from my pregnancy. Suffice to say it was a wonderful day, and I can’t wait for the next one.

While I was there, I got to meet two incredibly inspiring women whose blogs I have been reading for some time, Alice from Savory Sweet Life and Erika from The Ivory Hut.

See? I was so excited I asked someone to take my picture with them, and I never want my picture taken.

A few days ago Erika suffered a terrible loss, when her home burned to the ground. Alice teamed up with Maggy Keet of Three Many Cooks, who by the way did a fantastic job organizing the Big Summer Potluck, to create Friends of Ivory Hut. There they are raising money to help Erika and her family get back on her feet.

I wish I could do more to help, but my meager donation is all I can do in this economy with my ailing business and growing fetus. I do wish Erika all the best, though. If there is anything you could do to help, please stop by the website.
