Highs and Lows

This week has been a battle for me. At times I feel like I'm on my game and everything is going exactly right. At others, I feel like life has dropkicked me in the face. It would be annoying if it weren't so quintessentially LIFE, you know? I mean, life is a combination of inspiration and desperation, blessings and challenges. I think the real success in life is choosing to focus on the happiness in each day.

So this week, I'm choosing to focus on my new entryway table, my bread-making success and my husband's new health insurance. I'm going to ignore this terrible weather, the fact that I enjoyed so much of that homemade bread last night that I made myself sick, and the sad state of the economy. Counting your blessings isn't always easy, but it is definitely effective.

P.S. The bread I'm making is from this cookbook, and it couldn't be more easy or delicious. If I could practice some self-control (around bread? HA!), I would make this every day. I also would include pictures of the bread. I've tried with each of the 4 loaves I've made, but somehow, we keep eating it before I have a chance. Imagine that. Instead, check this photo out and pretend it's the loaf I made.
