The Gift of Pie

In our case, the above gorgeous pie was a gift from our sister-in-law, Marian. What is even more special about this gift is there was a second pie underneath the one pictured. Oh my! My thought with this post really is about giving in small ways, often. Giving of what we have. For some of us it is a baked good. For others it is time. For all of us it is a smile to someone we don’t even know. Give a kind word. This past week I got to meet two different blog readers from different parts of the country. Each shared their story with me which was an amazing gift to me. This giving idea is a lovely circle of love. Goodness and kindness and love all wrapped up in a simple gift, a gesture, a word.

You Know When You Know

My advice always when it comes to buying furniture or art, is to wait until you find just the right piece. You just know it when you see it. It feels right. It stirs something in your soul. Then your home is filled with things that tickle you at every turn. Wherever you eye lands, there is a memory. Visually it creates happiness and contentment. I promise, it will be worth the wait. Case in point. We have longed for a dresser in our bedroom at Hawthorne. Nothing over the years we saw excited us. Until it did. The minute I spotted it the other day, I knew. I just knew. Measurements were taken and the following day TPS came with me to look at it too, and he just knew. Ring us up, please! The piece perfect for the space and works just right with everything else in the room. I can’t stop looking at it. The wait was long, but oh so worth it. You know when you know.
