As they said, high risk comes with high rewards often times… But not all the time. Love your analogy as you compared reaching for a fruit that’s not in your normal boundaries based on temptations!!

And maybe the scent of a warm peach pie in the oven? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Peach pie is divine! 🙂 LikeLike Reply Share your feelings with me Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
