Sweet desserts are always enhanced by the addition of a little bit of salt to the recipe. The same thing applies to Sophie Hudson’s book A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet. Her sweet and precious stories are peppered with just the right amount of salt and sass.
A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet by Sophie Hudson
There’s nothing quite like family—for good or bad. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do the people sleeping right down the hall, it’s easy to forget that walking through life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly mundane. There’s even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the middle of the ordinary. And since time’s-a-wastin’, we need to be careful that we don’t take our people—and their stories—for granted. Whether it’s a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with the people we love the most.
Written in the same witty style as Sophie’s BooMama blog, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of Sophie’s very Southern family. It’s a look into the real lives of real people—and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all.
Today I am giving away one copy of A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet to one lucky winner. Additionally, todays winner will also receive a beautiful handmade necklace and bracelet set made by me. The combination of wood beads with tiger eye beads will perfectly compliment your fall wardrobe. Just like adding a little salt to something sweet!
