On Being Yourself...

Believe in the impossible, and don't ever forget that you are unique. Be your best self and not an imitation of someone else.

I do not know the author of that quote...but, isn't it wonderful?

Somedays are harder than others to be myself, best or not so, but I try. Today, I am longing to stay in the comfort of my home in my jammies and just  "be me" but alas, I will shower and dress and go to our struggling little shoppe and be a good mom to the daughter who will work this day with me.
Come for a visit, if you have time, I'll be inside  to greet you:)

I made these yummies and thought you might like them...sorry, no pic:(  thanks Mandy:)

If you love pecan pie, but want something quicker and easier, try these.

Pecan Pie Muffins    (there is NO baking powder or soda in these)

1 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 eggs

2/3 cup melted butter

1 cup chopped pecans (I toast them a few mins in a hot skillet Before chopping them)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a wooden spoon. Pour into a greased mini-muffin pan, filling each cup 2/3 full. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
Wishing you dear readers a lovely "be you" day of joy:)
