So much sweetness in this life...
Yep, I am a foodie.
I love it.
My hubby and I love trying new recipes,
and 10 days ago
we received a new one,
I had never heard of this bread before,
so I was pretty excited to receive it,
but also a little nervous to try it.
Ooh, the pressure...
My friend gave me a bag of dough,
that came with 10 days of instructions.
What if I mess up the recipe and my friend asks me how it turns out?!
What if I tell people about the bread, then ruin it and
I don't get to give any out?
Can you believe I was nervous about bread?
Well, I was!
I'm a “what if” girl.
I have a tendency to let fears get to me.
I'm an often quiet, shy girl,
who sometimes worries about mistakes
I even make them!
I'm a lot of other things too.
I just have to

I try lots of things.
I have experience.
Yet, even after
all of the things that
About the things
I am smart
enough to know,
some things just don’t matter.
Who cares if I make a mistake,
life will go on.
Things usually turn out better than expected,
Just like ~ this bread ~ last night.
even if it wouldn't have turned out perfectly,
I would have been just fine,
making mistakes is part of the growing process…
in the kitchen,
And I do realize that the best part of this bread,
Wasn't the bread itself,
that came with it!
30 – 3 things old seen new…dinner trays repainted, journals retyped, new blossoms on our old bush
31 – a gift on a paper, in a person, in a picture…a card I found while cleaning that was given to my hubby a few years ago, my mother-in-law’s call (who’s bday was today), a drawing along with a hole in the wall, because my niece unexpectedly tacked a picture up for me in my office
1 – a visit from a friend, his time and love, putting together a puzzle with the kids
2 - hubby won a trip, she’s happy to go because she loves him, the power is in believing
3 – clarity, expression, revelation
4 - invitations made with my little one, a newly hatched bird in her cage, crumbs she left… because she was home
5 – a blouse from my friend, the bench that my hubby made with me, her red heart blanket
