This question has been asked of us several times recently, so we thought we’d answer it in one single go… WE do!
This is our project, and our voices! (We do have a little help with the administration of it– but it’s the three of us driving the entire thing!) And, very truly, we couldn’t do it without you. So, thanks for being our inspiration and for keeping this project alive… and helping us move it forward!
“…. And all she could think about was how she would be held once her rescue was complete.”
And the romance is only beginning. ;)
Next up: Bethany Joy Lenz brings us Part IV on Sunday, April 1st (no joke)!
Delicious little spoiler… This Diamond Gothic chapter is called “Madeleines.” Find out why on Sunday, April 1st (on HelloGiggles, of course)!
And, why not make a batch of these dreamy, cookie-esque French cakes to enjoy whilst reading the chapter?
Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously butter and flour pan for large madeleines (about 3 x 1 1/4 inches). Using electric mixer, beat eggs and 2/3 cup sugar in large bowl just to blend. Beat in vanilla, lemon peel and salt. Add flour; beat just until blended. Gradually add cooled melted butter in steady stream, beating just until blended.
Spoon 1 tablespoon batter into each indentation in pan. Bake until puffed and brown, about 16 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Gently remove from pan. Repeat process, buttering and flouring pan before each batch. (Can be made 1 day ahead.)
Dust cookies with powdered sugar.
What’s that from which I’m drinking my homemade cappuccino? Why, it’s our latest giveaway item… A DIAMOND GOTHIC coffee mug!

Since the Jones/Mason family tree is being exposed (and is going to get pretty interesting, indeed), we thought we’d clarify this subject.
Here is a good, basic description of these relationships.
But to throw one more layer of complexity into this matter… remember that even in many of today’s societies (and especially in previous generations), if you happen to have an elder cousin (or older cousin-once-removed, etc.), then you’d still probably respectfully refer to that cousin as “aunt” or “uncle” (even though, yes, they’re technically you’re cousin, and yes, it makes this whole family tree biz a lot more confusing).
