  1. Well, I do understand. I think the CORNERSTONE of Brocante and Simple Abundance is probably to treat ourselves well, give ourselves permission to fail, and to give ourselves a little break in the chaos. I find that I actually do have to slow down, and I do buy stuff for myself, but it isn't a treat. I don't do it out of love, but of necessity… kind of like the gift you buy for your in-law you don't really like… I treat MYSELF that way! Thanks for the little post here that helps remind us to lovingly bless ourselves!— and I wish I had a slice of your pie. I bet it was fine!

  3. Your post has some great advice about the value of saving time for ourselves. About the pie…why is it when you definitely commit to something…anything can go wrong. I liked the part about the store closing in 5 minutes. Now why, I wondor, does that sound so familiar to me? Also the dirty dishes waiting to cap off the whole experience. You were clever to save the day and end up salvaging your pie. I would have tormented myself into starting over by rolling my own crust out. One thing I always did, as soon as my hubby would give me his pessimistic view, was to say like the little engine…"i think i can, i think i can…while just exhausted. I've enjoyed visiting !
