Audrey as a housewife.

Did you know that Audrey was a baker?

I spotted this picture and the following quote over on Taryn Cox The Wife. Just found her adorable blog and I think we’re kindred spirits!

“As a housewife, she had a light touch- She did not seem overburdened or cranky, she didn’t remind the rest of us how much she did- and yet she sewed many of her own and my clothes, kept the house meticulous, and always prepared our meals. The food we ate was acceptable more often then delicious; she favored pan broiled steak or noodle and cheese loafs, and she taught me her recipes in a low key, literal way, never explaining why I needed to know them. Why wouldn’t I need to know them? She was endlessly patient and a purveyor of small sweet gestures: Without commenting, she’d leave pretty ribbons or peppermint candies on my bed or, on my bureau, a single flower in a three inch vase.” – American Wife by: Curtis Sittenfeld
