The Oscar buzz for Meryl Streep began a few weeks before her latest film, Julie and Julia, opened. And when I saw it, I knew why. Streep, 60, who has been nominated for an Oscar 15 times since 1979 and won it twice, plays the legendary chef and cookbook writer Julia Child. The movie, co-starring Amy Adams and directed by Nora Ephron, is based on a best-selling memoir by Julie Powell that began as a blog and became an international bestseller.
The tagline for the film is ‘Passion. Ambition. Butter. Do You Have What It Takes?’ Ask yourself that question. If your answer is ‘yes,’ this blog is a safe place to start. And you can begin by sharing your passion for photography or writing.
What follows is what appeared in the July edition of Stepping Stones, our monthly newsletter:
“Been to our blog lately? It’s more colorful now that we’ve added pictures and videos to our posts. Look back over the past few weeks and you’ll see what we mean. We want to include you, so we’re opening up blogging at NourishingRelationships.blogspot.com to our readers.
