Five little things I loved this week:

Sunflowers and Gardens

When I was at the 17th Annual Kendall-Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival last Saturday, I was like a moth to a flame when I spotted the garden. Perhaps the metaphor should be bee to a flower — specifically the happy, welcoming sunflowers that beckoned from amid the beans and fading tomato plants!

Turning a Canceled Wedding Into Dinner for Homeless

I can’t imagine the sorrow couples and families feel when a wedding is called off. But there’s one family whose sad turn of events becomes something meaningful. See what happens when a couple turns their daughter’s canceled wedding into a dinner for homeless.

Julia Child & Discarded Titles

Finding the perfect title must have been a challenge for Julia Child, her co authors and editor Judith Jones as they prepared their epic cookbook. I loved seeing the list of titles they considered along the way.

Decluttering the Kitchen

My gadget drawer could use a little help, so The Kitchn’s timely advice on decluttering will be put to good use.

Conan Furloughs Non-Essential Staffers

Speaking of weeding out non-essentials, I couldn’t help but find some humor in how Conan O’Brian takes the government’s shutdown to heart and performs an audit of his own staff.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. If you see sunflowers, think of me!

    Liren, the sunflowers are gorgeous! The garden at Kendall Jackson must have been spectacular as well. And, such a heart breaking/heart warming story all in one about the cancelled wedding and turning some very sour lemons into lemonade. I can’t imagine having to cancel my daughter’s wedding, but I can imagine how the sad turn of events must have brought joy to so many others.

    What a nice thing they did for the cancelled wedding! Its sad that the wedding was cancelled, but I think its better that it was cancelled vs the couple spending a possible lifetime of regret and bitterness? For whatever reason it was, they still managed to make it meaningful :)
