I just got off the phone with the sweetest lady ever.

I got an email from the reporter who had done the story on us about the party, and she said she had gotten a call from a Ukrainian lady in Fredericksburg who was interested in speaking to us. She gave me the phone number and I called her tonight.

I told Sophia who I was and when she realized she said, "I called to get in touch with you because I really came alive when I heard about your story and I want to come next year! And I'd like to make sure you make cabbage rolls!"

We had a lovely chat for about 20 minutes, reliving the delicious dishes of Eastern Europe together. Sophia is 83 years young, and just a joy to speak with. She took down our phone number and intends to call me about us all getting together some time soon so I can learn some of her tricks! I have a feeling I'm in for a real life lesson.

What a sweet lady! I can't wait to meet her.
