One of things I have been striving to do is be nicer to myself.
Since moving into Storybook Cottage my “to do” list has become so long that I often forget to take even a moment for myself. With the addition of work and school on top of this list I inevitably become frazzled, worn out or just plain cross. My mood sometimes then trickles down onto the people I love the most.
Wanting to avoid this I have begun setting aside 15 minutes each afternoon to sit and gather my thoughts. The time is made even more pleasurable with a cup of tea and a cookie.
While I love to bake, and do so as often as I can, when I don’t have the time my favorite treat is Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies.
I am loving pink right now and adore the rosy shade that peeks out from the “raspberry Milano cookies”.
Oh it truly is a delicious moment.
There are occasionally delightful days when the time is made even sweeter by enjoying the moment with a favorite friend.
The happiness can also be shared with a family member. Sometimes Sweet Guy has a tough time at school but it seems that the day can be swiftly turned around with his favorite, orange Milano cookies.
Sometimes we need a reminder to step back from the frenzy of our everyday and just take a moment to focus on ourselves. A cup of tea and a Milano cookie is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a calm and happy moment either on my own or with loved ones.
I would love to know how you take a moment for yourself.
