When I was a kid and probably when you were a kid, at the end of every doctor or dentist appointment we were usually given a lollipop for our good behavior.
Hmmm...I'm not sure how healthy it is to give sugar to a extremely active kid with cavities but I sure didn't complain much at the time.
In fact, I sometimes wonder how anyone born before the 1990's survived all the junk we were fed as children.
But lo and behold. Here we are.
Now as a grown-up, after a doctor or dentist appointment, we are rewarded with a Nice Hefty Bill ~ especially if we live in these here Good Old United States. Sigh...
These days I try to avoid sugar as much as possible because I am, after all, a real live Grown-up.
So since I have been a very brave girl throughout all of my scary doctor appointments. And since I am so amazing that I have actually started (finishing remains to be seen) making Holiday presents in the Summertime ~ one of the Upsides of Downtime~
I have decided to reward myself with a little Etsy shopping.
I deserve it, God Dammit.
I treated myself to this beautiful 1990's era gauze dress from BeigeVintage. It Is Enormous. And very breezy and comfortable. I just love it. And I could quite possible eat a lot of sugary things while wearing it....if I wanted to...but I won't...well, maybe I will...but I probably shouldn't...but I could...do I smell cookies?? Anyhoo...

Meanwhile, my sidekick and interior design partner Pancake has started a pine cone collection. Every time we come home from the park he brings another pine cone which we have turned into a lovely organic coney centerpiece.
Nicely Done, Pancake.
How do you reward Yourself????
So happy to be back in the game.
