One of my all-time favorite blogs is not allowing me access...arghh...does this mean I've been sent to the corner (for misbehaving?-say it ain't so) or have all of us been shut out. (tear) I love her writing. I adore her blog. Karey Mackin is a Midwestern girl living in the Middle East, with her busy husband and three lovely girlies, Lillie, Grae-Rose, and Esmé. She vaguely remembers a career in publishing and a few books she may have written, but is absolutely certain a previous lifetime was spent as a crow. Yes, she likes shiny things that much. A few other things you should know about Karey: she laughs at all the wrong moments, prefers recipes that only require two ingredients or less, and wears black pretty much all of the time. Except for that turquoise dress. See gobs of shiny objects mixed in with girlie fables from a not-so-far away land at her blog, mackin ink. I hope she is O.K.. Anyone know the scoop about our Jordan friend? Here is her Kirtsy feed.
