Mmmm Berry Pie

Raspberry Pie

This past week in my tizzy of what I’m foolishly calling a “quarter life crisis,” I decided to do some things that just felt good. No matter how you week is shaping up, I highly recommend you do at least one of the following things:

1. Go for a long run – always clears my head and makes me feel good. But please, please run on the grass – not the concrete – save your knees! Please! I feel like a grandma, but really, this is a good one to keep in mind :)
2. Treat yourself – latte…2% milk. Yeah.
3. Skype with that friend who you deeply miss. They will always make you smile and she’ll probably have a great story for you. And then you’ll realize that the two of you should probably be talking several times a week. (Get on the 10 minute conversation train! The closer I am to someone, the more often I call them, and it’s usually for just a quick “hello” or “oh my gosh, I just saw a tiny fluffy puppy being pushed in a stroller, and you had to know that immediately.”)
4. Have some alone time.
5. Make a lattice pie! It’s so easy and looks so fancy!
Seriously, this recipe was a piece of pie….That’s how that saying goes, right?

This is something I frequently struggle with. I’m a HUGE surprises person. Maybe this is girly, but I really do love to give thoughtful surprise presents, or in this case, surprise birthday dessert!
