Happy One Year to me (and you!)

Yes, I'm still here.
Life has been a little (lot) crazy and I've been neglecting
Pies and Aprons. and you.

Today I am back and celebrating the one year anniversary
of Pies and Aprons. Please feel free to let out a celebratory whoop!

You can let out another whoop as I announce, in honor of the occasion,
my first giveaway.
Three lucky readers will receive one of these lovely vintage aprons!

and what your favorite pie is.
You also have two other ways to enter for more chances to win!

Have your entries in by Sunday, September 5th!

My first post was about rituals and new beginnings, and those lovely feelings of fresh possibilities
are starting to swell in me as the season is poised to change.
Hope you're feeling the same.
Happy September, and
Happy One Year to us all. (because this would be silly without y'all)

  6. I would look wonderful in the apron with the purple flowers and the green trim as I squeeze key limes to make my favorite pie.

  7. I love the first apron - it's the ruffle that tickles me. Wouldn't it be darling made into a skirt?? I just need to learn to sew! ha!
    And my favorite pie would be... well... depends on the mood (of course!) ~ coconut cream or key lime :)

  25. Like everyone else, choosing is difficult. I'd have to say it's between coconut almond and buttermilk. Love your blog. Makes me smile and aspire. More than that, I just love seeing what's up at your house, since I don't get to see you often.

    As for the apron, I'd choose the one with the pointed trim. Makes me look thinner:)
