While going through the blog looking for posts where I started a meal with a roux, I came across this post.
That was from very early in 2011 — look at that smile. Before I ever met her, and I had heard about her, I asked Chad . . what do you like about her? His response: She always has a smile on her face! And she does! I am so blessed to have her for a daughter-in-law?
In this picture, she was eating her gumbo with a fork because she said she didn’t eat “juice”. Yesterday I sent her a link to the post and told her . . you’ve come a long way. You’re almost a real Cajun now and yes, she eats the “gumbo juice” now!
I’ll never forget the first time she came to the house and while trying to make conversation with her, I asked her if she knitted or sewed and she looked at me like I was crazy and she said “Why would I?” Hmmm .. I think her response would be different today.
She’s such a sweet girl and she has such a great attitude. I love her! And, I love Chad even more for giving me the best daughter-in-law ever!
