Five Little Things

What a week! How are you holding up? I have been focusing on not just five little things, but ALL the little, little things. Like the sound of the blender in the morning when my daughter makes her breakfast smoothie…cat cuddles…my son’s laugh…the heater when I wake up in the morning. What little things keep you going?

Here are Five Little Things I loved this week:

1. Arroz Caldo

This week the need for comfort food coaxed me to pull out the pot and make my ultimate comfort food, Arroz Caldo. This is the chicken and rice soup I grew up on, the hint of ginger in the broth is so soothing, and perfect for staying warm and cozy.

2. Bolero

One of the most beautiful pieces ever, what I also love about this version of Ravel’s Bolero is conductor Gustavo Dudamel!

3. Thanks to Alex

This touching moment of gratitute on Jeopardy made my heart smile.

4. Memories

Just a reminder that everything’s going to be alright.

5. Christmas Will Make Everything Better

It will, right? (By the way, you’re not alone. Mom Holderness is my daughter personified!)

Stay joyful!

    Thank you for posting the Bolero performance. I enjoyed the music, the filming, and most of all the conductor’s expressions! Soothing to the soul made weary by this tense week.
