Food bloggers rally around one of their own
As I spend Friday reflecting on the love and life that was gone in an instant, I'd like to invite all of you to celebrate his life too. Mikey loved peanut butter cream pie. I haven't made it in a while, and I've had it on my to-do list for a while now.I kept telling myself I would make it for him tomorrow. Time has suddenly stood still, though, and I'm waiting to wake up and learn to live a new kind of normal. For those asking what they can do to help my healing process, make a peanut butter pie this Friday and share it with someone you love. Then hug them like there's no tomorrow because today is the only guarantee we can count on.
I hope that the outpouring of prayers and pies is a bit of a comfort to Jennifer and her daughters as they mourn. I know that this outpouring has changed the way I think about the food blogging community that I’m a part of. I’m now more proud and more grateful to be a member of it. The line between a virtual community and a real community became a little less solid for me as I’ve read the messages and blogs for the Perillo family over the past couple of days. It’s been inspiring.
