Five Little Things

Hi, everyone! I hope you’re all well. This was a crazy week for me — I’ve been working on some fun recipes behind the scenes that I can’t wait to share with you in the coming weeks. But perhaps the highlight for me was the return of fresh air to the Bay Area, at least for a little while. My daughter and I took daily walks again, the first in nearly a month! My feet and leg muscles had to get used to long walks again! I’m trying to enjoy each deep breath as much possible, since the smoke is due to return this weekend. I hope that you are well and finding joy in all the little things!

Here are Five Little Things I loved this week:

1. The Year of Gratitude and Helping Others

As challenging as 2020 has been, it has also been the year of gratitude. There is just too much we take for granted, especially food, and yesterday on Instagram, I shared how we can help hungry families across the United States.

I was writing to a friend and found myself telling her how every challenge this year has taught me to never take anything for granted. This is the year of gratitude — for breathing the fresh air that returned to the Bay Area this week, for a home where my family can study and work, for video calls with far away family and friends, for Friday pizza nights, and for so much more.⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ It's easy to take a lot of these things for granted—especially food, which isn't available to everyone. That's why I'm trying to do my part by donating to Wells Fargo's Drive-Up Food Bank program.⠀⁣ ⠀⁣ Wells Fargo and Feeding America have teamed up to help provide 50 million meals through the Wells Fargo Drive-Up Food Bank program.

2. Craftsmanship

Just as peaceful as sipping tea is watching this artisan make the perfect tea pot.

3. Delicious Virtual Travels

My friend Jane shared this great piece from Clumsy Girl Travels listing virtual travel experiences! Imagine making egg tarts and tacos at home!

4. 80’s History

The newest American Girl doll is from the 80’s, and boy I’m having flashbacks!

By the way, did you know that banana clips are back? May as well get a new one while we’re back in the 80’s vibe!

5. The Circle of Life

The middle schooler stage might crack me up the most!

Stay joyful!
