While toying with the idea of making peach jam this weekend, I was reminded of the annual Georgia Peach Festival. Apparently, the festival will showcase “the world’s largest peach cobbler”. Yummy! I remember the peach ice cream at the festival. It is one of my favorite childhood memories. I wish I could go this year (June 4 - 11), but alas, I guess I’ll have to settle for just making peach jam. :)
Tonight, on my way back from my first experience of anti-gravity yoga, which induced nausea and massive headaches, I found myself revisiting a discussion I had had with a colleague today. The entire chat was about how time and relinquishing the need to control/predict everything can present magical surprises. We talked about relishing in the simple joys in life that bring a smile to your face. Then, of course, I began to really dig in and ponder about what those things are. Here’s what I came up with, all of which are from today.
1) My evening shower with my favorite soap, white grapefruit, from Saipua.
2) A bowl of “Mom’s Chicken Soup” from Whole Foods.
3) Making a complete fool of yourself and sharing that experience with friends —> anti-gravity yoga.
4) Keeping in touch with the people who bring you love and joy.
5) Realizing that you are enough (thanks Brene Brown).
7) Pinwheel cookies.
8) A really good cup of coffee and/or Black & Blueberry tea with soy milk and honey from Coyi Cafe.
9) The smell of clean laundry.
10) Modern Family — Absolutely love this television show.
11) Sunshine, iPod, and a good walk home.
La vie est belle!
Here is Refinery29’s top picks for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. I really want to see “Last Night” and “Lotus Eaters”. By the way, you can rent “Last Night” for $7 on iTunes. Movie tickets are $12 or so anyway these days, why not expend $7 on iTunes?
