This is a journey of finding yourself and how your loved ones see you in their eyes. Further, this can be online and carried forward to share, if you wish, to future generations. - See more at: http://joannfitz.blogspot.com.au/2013/09/the-book-of-me-written-by-you-topic-1.html#sthash.2TuO2bVu.dpuf

Pierogi's in many different types and styles. Along with many of the types of desserts as well.
I would love to sit down and talk about the different dishes (and possibly make them with them along with others), learn some Polish, learn about what their lives were like when they lived in Poland and what they went through. I'd ask them all about their relatives and where they lived when they were there. I know basics but to listen to the describe what they did and where they lived from their perspective would be fantastic.

Later in the day, I'd love for my mother to meet up with her mother, and my nieces and their children, meet up with all of these great women. I think this would mend many fences that have fallen down
through communication loss over the years. I would take so many photos of each and everyone as I have none of my great grandparents or my grandmother on my mother's side. Although I do have a picture of her sister, whom my mother called Aunt Honey, which looks very much like her.
