Five Little Things

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s been a rough week here in California. The wildfires are devastating and while my family and I are thankfully safe, the air quality is really terrible. We may be sheltering in place already, but I do miss stepping outdoors — my daughter and I were forced to break our walking streak due to the smoke. We had 158 days of walks, rain or shine, during SIP!

Here are Five Little Things I loved this week:

1. Figs

I’ve been ordering lots of figs on my online grocery orders, but it wasn’t until this week that I finally got a batch of the sweetest specimens! Biting into them brought me back to the market in Nice!

If you need some tips for picking the ripest figs, definitely check out my guide. Then go make something yummy — my Fig, Honey and Goat Cheese Galette is a personal and reader favorite!

2. A Different Kind of Bloom

Bloom on grapes are good!

3. Chocolate

Yes, I love chocolate. But today I’m talking about Chocolate, the Korean drama series currently on Netflix. It’s made for food lovers, with beautiful cooking scenes and mouthwatering food. I just love how the food is a character in and of itself!

4. Museums Reopening

It made me smile to hear that NYC will be reopening their museums. Even if I”m far away, I’m thankful for that glimmer of hope!

5. Perseverence

My daughter is channeling all her energy and talents into a future in theatre, so this lesson in perseverance from Bryce Dallas Howard rings true, but it’s a good lesson for all of us, no matter our endeavors.

BONUS: Dynamite

As a little bonus, BTS dropped a new song and it’s just instant happy! If you need a pick me up, crank it up – you’ll be dancing in no time!

Stay joyful and keep dancing!

    I did love the food scenes of the K-drama Chocolate when I watched it a few months ago. The love story within was cute, too, though I found the middle part a bit slow-paced. But the sweet ending made up for it. Thanks for the reminder.
