I love the new barn, the kitchen in your home, how you treat Jeffrey and how he loves all the dishes that you make for him, plus the way you explain things to us-so simply. I have copied down all of your design styles from your cookbooks and have implemented a lot of them-books in the dining room, etc.-I have ordered some of the CDs you recommend, etc. Sorry I missed you on your book tour when you came to Williams -Sonoma in San Francisco! I watch you every SINGLE day!
