learning to forgive yourself makes life so much better

This is a lesson that has taken me an entire lifetime to learn, and one that I still sometimes have trouble remembering. I am a classic perfectionist, and while I find it easy to let the mistakes of others go, I haven't always afforded the same compassion for myself.

This weekend, a very special Italian grandmother sent a very special Italian care package to our humble abode, and I let down my hair and ate an unreal amount of sponge cake, salami, biscotti and casatiello. And then, I felt bad. And after that? I forgave myself. I mean, I think it would be worse to let all this go to waste...

Thank you, Nonna, for the amazing food, and an amazing reminder...life is short...sometimes we must indulge...
