Five Little Things
Five Little Things I loved the week of July 27, 2019: travel, strangers, subway music, and more!
Happy weekend, friends! The last two weeks I’ve been on the road a lot, the suitcase in various stages of packing and unpacking. I was back home in New York last week to spend a quick visit with my family, and right now I’m actually on a plane to LA. I guess that’s summer for you!
Here are Five Little Things I loved this week:
With all the travel, you may have noticed the last couple of posts have been about some recent (and not so recent) adventures. In case you missed it, I shared A Taste of Agriculture in Central Valley California, which will always stand out as a personally fulfilling and educational trip to such a vital part of our food world.
And I’m also excited to share my Nice Travel Guide: A Taste of The French Riviera (The Côte d’Azur) with you! I was there around this time last year, (yes, it took me a while to finally write it up), and I just with I could hop on a plane and return the markets in Nice.
2. Food Culture

I’m doing a talk and book signing for Daily Bread at @vromansbookstore in Pasadena, Thursday July 11 at 7:00 PM! I hope to see friends and meet new ones at my favorite independent bookshop! This is Rosalie from Nice, one of 52 kids featured in the book. Like most kids who grow up in the Mediterranean, Rosalie eats lots of fish, particularly sardines. She’s learned how to cook and make dishes like lentils with sausage thanks to her dad, a restaurateur, though she prefers kickboxing. #dailybread #booksigning #localbookstore #vromans #whatkidseat #foodie #kids #culture
We teach our kids about stranger danger, but I have to agree with this article that there is some truth to this research about speaking to strangers…and happiness.
4. Tennis Tricks
What happens when the guys from Dude Perfect team up to play against Serena Williams? She wins, of course!
5. Subway Music
Any time I hop on the subway, the best part are the musicians you encounter. Imagine how shocked the passengers felt when they discovered Christina Aguilera and Jimmy Fallon performing for them!
Have a wonderful weekend!
