 "I’m in my mid-forties and it makes me wonder how on earth I ever survived before finding her on social media! I cringe when thinking about all the food I’ve thrown away over the years because I didn’t know how to wash and store it multiple weeks! 

Amy, you are such a blessing and a hoot to watch. I am so very thankful that I stumbled across #strawberriesinajar one random day. Thank you for all your efforts and keep on changing the world!”
