There is absolutely nothing like walking home with two paper-wrapped loaves of fresh bread and a bouquet of flowers to brighten up your day. There was something about both the walk and seeing the items of the day all together that brought me great joy and peace. It reminded me to take a minute, enjoy a slice of focaccia and a few pages of the newest Vogue. There is nothing like an afternoon reboot to continue a great day.
So I say to everyone, whether you’re cooking for two, twenty, or just responsible for the wine, take a moment today to enjoy some peace and quiet. Holiday weekends often end up being more exhausting than relaxing. So if you haven’t yet, give some of today all to yourself. Before the storm of the holidays sweeps through.
