Blogging for Jennie (#afundforjennie)
I know I've been out of the blogging world for a few months now (as a matter of fact my husband just gave me a puzzled look as I left the living room and I told him I was going to write this post) but I've still kept up with my favorite blogs. Last week I noticed that a lot of the food bloggers that I follow were baking peanut butter pies and I knew it couldn't be a coincidence especially since I kept seeing #piesformikey attached to the recipes. It turns out that a beloved food blogger named Jennifer Perrillo from In Jennie's Kitchen suddenly became a widow and a single mom to two adorable little girls. I cried as I read this post and was touched by how the blogging community reacted. I said a little prayer for her and her family and kept them in my mind for the remainder of the day. Her tragedy had an affect on many bloggers out there and a list quickly grew for Pies for Mikey. The blogging community has taken this a tad further than simply baking pies and desserts in Mikey's honor. Bloggers without Borders has set up a donation site where one can donate or bid on different items that are being auctioned. I urge you to read her story and try to donate as much as you can by clicking on the banner below.
