May I have your applauses for our talented artist A. and this week “Sunday Bake Club” hostess – Anna!!!!!
Actually, this Sunday,we were “broadcasting” from Anna’s kitchen and our bake club was crowded – except A, we had other guests - A’s boyfriend – Y and their son, and V who has just arrived from Germany.
Y and V were very supportive – they were quietly playing chess on the couch and from time to time, if needed, were asked to taste a cookie and express an opinion. As you can guess, it was always positive.
Thank you, guys!
As for S (A’s and Y’s baby) – he is a cute little creature, standing still every time when I was pointing the camera against him.
