This weekend was the first in months that felt the way a weekend ought to feel. It involved the holiday tents and ice skaters in Central Park. Long walks with cold puffs of air every time I opened my mouth. Hot chocolate to temper the chill. The aroma of gingerbread cookies fresh from the oven on Sunday morning. The indulgence of a single pink peony for $13. Naps, reading, slippers and pizza for dinner.
I haven't personally thanked everyone who's reached out the past several weeks. I hope you know how much I appreciate your kindness.
To you and everyone:
"For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything this goodness sends."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
P.S. A few things I'm loving lately:
This perfect gift for the pint-sized chef in your life;
My beautiful new watch (an early Christmas present from Tiho);
These stunning pour over coffee stands;
This important reminder;
Timely words about holiday traditions;
