Make a visit to Mitford!!

I was fortunate to meet Jan Karon in Blowing Rock

Today I am recommending that you jump on over to From a Writer's Kitchen. This truly wonderful writer is describing in story form about her visit to Blowing Rock, North Carolina aka Mitford to all of us Jan Karon fans. If you have never read the Mitford series, please treat yourself to a very enjoyable summer experience!

Ms. Karon was the honoree for the Mitford Days celebration
in Blowing Rock in 2007

Oh thank you Karen! I am so envious that you are sitting right next to Jan. What year was this? LOVE the red Mustang convertible! When I was in "Mitford" oh my, almost ten years ago, Jan still had her rusty old brown Toyota that she described somewhere. I'm sure you know all of her bio--she is wonderfully "self made".

Cynthia is my friend from childhood, not of Mitford fame. I think Jan is that "Cynthia".

I actually wrote the Mitford Essay just after that trip and am so glad I did. Such wonderful cozy (foggy) memories.
