I, too, was a bit disappointed with Making Toast. I expected a more intimate portrait of Rosenblatt's newly formed family, but came away from it feeling like he'd glossed over all the personal moments. And, yet, as I wrote my review, I realized I got more out of this memoir than I thought when I finished it a few weeks ago.

BTW, I'm updating my blogroll and came across your blog, realizing it'd been ages since I'd visited. I love the fresh new look, and as always, your photos are gorgeous. I'll be back more frequently now. :)
