Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

Last year I started working outside of the home and began the divorce process. I knew these significant life changes would take some adjusting. I didn’t know that adjusting would go so deep and take so long. These adjustments have changed my definition of excellence, at least in some of the details. My pursuit in excellence (PIE) is still not a piece of cake, especially since I’m still figuring out what excellence looks like now?
Focusing on that question, leads me to wonder how to record my pursuit in excellence, when I don’t know what excellence looks like to me. Where does this blog fit in with this transition? Is it book reviews and recipes? Cub Scouts and parties? Since working full time, all of those activities occur less frequently now. While they seem fairly superficial, the can be parts of my journey because they are a vehicle to bond with those I love, and avenues for growth. But what are my deeper focuses? Am I brave enough to really open up about the inner transformation I’m undergoing? Let’s hope so.
Thank you to those who have stuck with me through this transition. I appreciate your support and encouragement as I find my way down the bumpy path. Hopefully we can help each other along the journey toward excellence.
Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? Cake, cake’s easy; even my favorite Deep Dark Chocolate Cake from scratch. Maybe I’m just more experienced at cake.
I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while. It’s so fun to read other people’s blog, but it always seemed like one more thing calling for my time. This morning, I was thinking of all the skills I want to develop and improve. We had a great Enrichment meeting last night on photography, and we mentioned it would be neat to get a group together to take picture of the same thing and see how many different perspectives everyone came up with. That led me to the premise of my blog. I’m challenging myself in different areas of interest and inviting you to join me and share your experiences.
