She sounds like quite a remarkable woman. You are very fortunate to have shared part of your life with her. Those sand tarts do sound yummy!


What a wonderful tribute to your great aunt. She sounds like an absolute sweetie and such an inspiration.


I loved this post. You made her come alive for us. I feel so nostalgic. Thanks!


I have an awesome great aunt too--I think I should go call her now that you mention it :) Great post with wonderful description!

It's wonderful to see you all here! Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoyed reading your takes on this week's prompt, too. I've left comments... ;)


What an inspiration! We should all grow older with as much enthusiasm and excitement as your aunt. She sounds positively, well, delicious.

This is a wonderful post.

What a sweet story! And sounds like she was quite the baker.


You left me wanting to know more about Great Aunt E; a lovely tribute to her.
The sand tarts wre also very intriging.

Nice to "see" you here and thanks for reading and commenting! I enjoyed my visits to your blogs very much.


Paris Parfait — It's interesting that you say that, because I'm realizing how much baking was part of her identity. And the more exotic the treat, the better.

Maryam in Marrakesh — She WAS delicious. I'm glad she was in my family. She's such a great role model for being an "older" person (I'll never say "old").


Beautiful post. She must have been a great lady. It is important to post our memories of these significant people in our lives as through us and our writings, they live on.


Sarala — I really like your point about people living on through our writing.
