Loved this! So light and easy to read and I liked Katie and her choice at the end. Especially that note with Aunt Sally feeding the twins mashed bananas...hmmm, 'about those cooking lessons-that shows a wonderful glimpse of her personality in thsese 750 words. ^_^

Very enjoyable. I especially liked the way you wrapped it up...no sudden boring summary, as in "Well, it turned out that I married Charlie." I like it that he just shows up there ordering pizza at the end. You kept me with the story and with the family all the way through.

This was an enjoyable read. I liked the wisdom Aunt Sally shared and the end was great.
The ending was perfect in my opinion. I loved how Katie learned a little bit from both her aunt as well as her mother, while still maintaining her own unique identity.

The food descriptions got me so hungry. I could picture a scrumptious southern home cooked meal sitting in front of me. Yum!

Great lesson here, and that second to last paragraph is a highlight. Well done.

Well, I love this wonderful story! It made me feel at home, warm, and comfortable. This is the kind of story I'd love to read in a nice, looonnng book on a sunny, lazy summer day...in the porch swing...with iced tea at my elbow...you get the picture!
First, I have to comment about the food. The peach cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream snd the the pork chops and green beans brought back a lot of memories to this Oklahoma boy. Next, is how well you told this story and the wonderful message without being preachy. The writing was sincere and so very real. A great entry for this week's challenge.

This was a fun read with a lot to think about mixed in. I love the line where both Mom and Aunt Sally gave her the best of themselves.
