  3. Followed a pin to your blog (I am making your geo heart for valentine's day -- can't believe you live in Bakersfield! That is where I grew up :) I know exactly where you live! (well, not exactly, but I know those streets well :) Hooray for cool people from Bakersfield! You need to be friends with my mom! She works at Williams Sonoma in the Marketplace. If you are ever there and meet Pam, tell her that her daughter Tiffany sent you! She is an avid gardener and canner -- best jam you EVER had. She might even let you come pick apricots or blackberries in her backyard if you are extra nice :) Email me if you need a canning friend tiffanyrueckert@gmail.com Too bad I live in Maryland now! I do visit about once a year though... If you have time you should email me. How long have you lived in Bakersfield? I might be able to give you some tips about places you might like to go -- you probably know them all though... mabye not!

    1. How nice of you. I was just in WS yesterday. I look for your mom next time. We moved to Bako 12 years ago. My husband teaches at BHS, so we live in the neighborhood. It's a black hole. We've moved overseas twice and ended back here. But, we love our church and our little house (we can walk to Dewar's). I've been wanting to start a canning club of some sort, I'lll let your mom know if I do. Talk to you soon.
