In celebration of a life well lived, this Kick in the Tush Club e-letter is dedicated to Harriet Taylor, my 96 year-young mother who peacefully and quite beautifully passed away on Saturday morning, January 19, in our home.
She’d gotten a mammoth kick that I’d shared photos and videos of her on these pages and that her “Words of Cake Wisdom” video had received over 1,300 “hits” on YouTube.

Please do smile, laugh and cheer for a life fully, happily and authentically lived.
