The Weekend + The Word







Well hi there... How was your weekend?? I have to say that minus a slight migraine, my weekend was spectacular. It was spectacular because I spent every minute of it doing something I love. I went to this local chocolatier where I watched them make chocolate and had a mocha that puts Starbucks to shame. Their lemon and rosemary-thyme macarons were wonderful, too. I walked around and visited some little shops in one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city, I drank lots of tea, lots of water, ate healthy, slept 10 hours each night, took lots of pictures, bought white tulips and smiled a lot. I designed a new centerpiece for my dining table (details on that later). I also cleaned out a cabinet in my kitchen so that I could store my food props. I never imagined I would have a food prop cabinet. But I do now and I love it. I also love my new honey dipper. It's the little things...

I never came up with my "word of the year" this weekend. But by spending an entire weekend doing things I loved, I certainly came up with the feeling I would like to maintain this year. Of course I won't be able to emulate the events of my weekend each day during the year, but I can certainly strive to do those types of things + whatever else brings a smile to my face as often as possible. I even want to get better at smiling through the tough and mundane times. Gosh I need to get better at that...

I could list 100 other things I would love to do this year, but I think if I try my hardest to keep those simple thoughts in mind, this year will be a good one no matter what happens. I love that...

  5. Sounds like the perfect weekend. I love to wander, experience and explore - although it doesn't happen often enough. Perhaps a "Me-date" is in order?? :) Enjoy your week! -Nicole
