Thank you

July 23, 2012

As many of my readers know, we had a baby this summer.  Her name: Eliza Hope.  She came about 9 weeks early and when she was born, faced many challenges.  Her little life started a bit shaky, but, she remained stable for many weeks.  We were on a very positive track.  Sadly, though, her liver was a major challenge that she faced and couldn't beat.

I kept a small online journal of our NICU journey with Eliza.  Please feel free to read it by clicking here.  I am also going to be adding a permanent link to my sidebar in the near future.
I wanted to thank everyone for the kind words, thoughts, prayers & condolences that came from the online blogging community.  I still get emotional when I think of the outpouring of support that we received and continue to receive. It has helped.  Truly, it has.  It also makes me proud to be part of such a caring community of people.
So, the future of Table of 7?  It will continue.  After having a family talk, it was decided that blogging is a big part of me and should not end. 
The cooking/baking/photography/sharing..I really love it.  It's my own personal therapy.
I hope you continue to enjoy my little foodie blog, because, I do, enjoy sharing it with you.
Thank you.


  1. Erin, I had no idea. I am so sorry and my heart goes out to you and your family.

  2. Erin, I didn't know about your little Eliza Hope. I am so sorry; it must be a terrible thing for you to bear. I'm glad that you are putting your story on-line. It will certainly help other parents, grandparents, and family members of those who have experienced this kind of a struggle and loss.

  3. Thank you both for the kind words.

  4. Erin, I have been following Eliza's journey since you posted about her here for the first time. I am so sorry to hear of her passing.

    I am glad to hear that blogging is a therapy. I love looking at the recipes that you post, and have even tried some.

    ::HUGS:: to you and the family in this difficult time.
