Best of March

A little greatest hits segment for your lunch break on my last posting day of March.

The Post That Brought the Most Visitors

Sugar-Free Chocolate Syrup: Three Ways: This one was in the works for quite some time, and it's one of the most successful recipe posts I've ever done - right up there with my Copycat Recipe for Vegan Tofu Scramble and my Green Smoothie recipe. I can't tell you how lovely it is to hear that people are making things that I put up on this site. Makes me feel like a benevolent culinary celebrity. 

The Post That Brought the Most Tears

Rwanda: The Pediatrics Ward: I spent two weeks thinking and writing and thinking and writing about my visit at the pediatrics ward. I was so full with feelings about the trip that it took me that long to sort out what I really thought or wanted to say about what happened. The result is a completely new way of looking at photography and stories and the way we do (or don't) talk about, write about, and document our lives. I'm fairly certain that this experience planted a seed that's going to grow into something I can't envision yet. I hope that I can nurture it and be open to whatever rises up. 

The Post That Brought the Most Laughs

Rwanda: The Mountain Gorillas: Who knew gorillas were so funny? I gave myself the giggles imagining what these guys and gals were thinking. 

The Post That Brought the Most Commenters

Scenes from Rwanda: They say a picture's worth a thousand words. Of course, I had a lot to say about my trip to Rwanda, and for some things a picture says it best. What an enormous gift I received - to travel around that gorgeous country with my camera and capture all those moments. I've been loving my DSLR camera since I got it back in August, but I feel like I turned a corner in Rwanda. I began seeing differently - everything had the potential for beauty. I hope to carry that eye for beauty with me all the time.

I continue to be so thankful for all of you who visit this blog, who comment, email me, call me, or just quietly share in this journey with me. 
April, here we come!
