Pie Day 2013 in Pictures

Monday, November 25, 2013

Well friends, another Pie Day has come and gone. What is Pie Day you ask? Katie explains it here. And this year I learned a few valuable lessons. First: a good knife is essential. As pretty as those pies look sitting atop cake pedestals, no one is going to eat them until they are cut.

Second: as hostess you will be tempted to make a million pies. Don't do it. One, maaaybe two is sufficient.

Third: let it go. For a perfectionist like me, that's the hard part. All the prep work, conversing with friends, picking out music, and even the clean up is easy. However when it comes to orchestrating what happens during the party (i.e., when someone brings cookies to a PIE party or when a kid pees all over your dining room chair), well, some things are just out of my control.

In the end, what matters most is that people enjoy themselves. That they leave our home feeling happy and full. If that happens then I think our party has been a success. Until next year!
