“Sometimes I worry about you. Because you spend a lot of time alone, you know?” – my husband

“I’m kinda hungry.”

“CHERRIES.”

“Huh, yeah. I could go for some cherries.”

(Several minutes and a pound of cherries later …)

“Ugh. I don’t feel well.”

“EAT MORE CHERRIES.”

“I honestly don’t think that would be a good idea.”

“EAT. CHERRIES.”

“But I already feel kinda sick–”

“CHERRIES.”

(Eats another half pound of cherries. Severe gastrointestinal discomfort ensues.)

“Oh, god. I think … I think I’m legitimately ill. I think it was the cher-”

“DO NOT BLAME CHERRIES.”

“You’re kidding, right? We do this every year.”

“NO.”

“Yes we do. We eat, like, three pounds of cherries in one sitting, and then we wonder why -”

“LA LA LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU-“

“WE WONDER WHY WE FEEL SICK.”

“I feel fine.”

“No, you don’t.”

“Do too.”

“I think I should call Rand and tell him we’re sick.”

“Tell him to buy more cherries.”

Look, you guys, sometimes you just need to eat cherries until you run the risk of pooping in the middle of gym class.

  • 11 years. You have made my life what it is, Rand.
  • When you find out that @britneymuller has surreptitiously been taking photos of your butt on her phone.
Me: Why.
Her: Because it's perfect.
*swoon*
❤️❤️❤️
  • Hair toss, check my nails. Baby how you feeling? Thirty-nine as hell.
  • Me: You cannot go to sleep at 10pm EST.
Him: Watch me.
  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.
