Abuja, Nigeria: American Homemade Cherry and Apple Pie
You know the feeling when in some way you've been put through the wringer and then your friends or family do something in their every day lives that changes you mood or attitude? That recently happened to me when I stayed with friends in Abuja. The hard-working loving wife to a gracious husband and mother of two adventurous children spent all day making pies to donate to a fundraiser for her children's school. The whole house was filled with smells that reminded me of the simple things in life. I wish these photos were scratch and sniff because it was the most comforting, warmest smell - the only thing that could match it would be the smell of rain (yes, I'm still obsessed with rain) ...
Pies made with dedication. Table cloth bought locally (also made with dedication).
