The Use Your Words blog book tour is stopping at Berit Thorkelson’s wonderful Love and Diapers blog today. I just met Berit a couple of weeks ago at an Another Mother Runner event in St. Paul, but I had heard wonderful things about her from two writer mama friends. And then I mentioned her name to my mom, and my mom said, “I know Berit’s dad, and her grandparents were so good my grandparents.” It turns out that both our families have strong ties to Granite Falls, MN. Who knew. In fact, my mom went to visit Berit’s grandmother in September when she was back in Granite for her reunion. Clearly we are cousins or something.
I love those kinds of connections, and I’m happy to say that I now know Berit, who is a talented and prolific writer and writes Love and Diapers at Parents.com. Thank you, Berit, for your lovely post and for participating in the Use Your Words blog book tour!!
