To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

BLUE RIBBON PUMPKIN BREAD
There was one can of pumpkin left in the pantry.
Believe it or not, I let October and November
pass me by without making my favorite
Lo and behold, I came across this vintage recipe
on Pinterest and decided to bake a loaf.
Oh my, my......yes my loves,
it is Blue Ribbon worthy!
I will no longer wait until Fall to bake this lovely
quick bread recipe. How divine
to enjoy this with morning coffee or tea.
I highly recommend this one!
The lovely tea towel was part
of a lovely gift from the Stonewall Kitchen!
