#1: If you combine three black tea bags, a spoonful of honey, a squirt of lemon juice and a handful of fresh mint in pot of boiling water, cover it and let it steep for five minutes, then pour it over ice, you’ll have some pretty awesome tasting iced tea.
#2: The best place in the grocery store is, hands down, the cheese section. Cow’s milk cheese, goat cheese, vegan cheese, whatever. If there’s cheese involved, you know it’s a pretty good day.
#3: Sometimes recipes are so good you have to make them twice…in two days.
#4: Soup is the best…even when it’s 79 degrees outside. And especially if it’s Turkish Red Lentil Soup with paprika oil and lemon juice drizzled on top.
#5: If you’re just not feeling it today, there’s always Child’s Pose.
Or this pose:
#6: If I were ever stranded on a desert island, as long as there were bakery bread, eggs, avocados and crimini mushrooms, I’d be totally fine. Oh, and cheese. There’d have to be cheese too. (See #2.) So, basically, if I were ever stranded on a desert island, I’d need there to be a bakery and a creamery and a farm. I’d also need to have a really comfy bed…and a hot tub. But that’s it. Oh, AND CHOCOLATE MOUSSE. Ok, now I’m done. Oh wait, COFFEE! Maybe I should just stay home. No desert island for me.
#7: It’s impossible to watch this video without smiling.
#8: It’s perfectly acceptable to go the whole day without realizing your shirt is inside out. (And still not fix it even when you do.)
#9: Once a month, when you’re a lady (and even when you’re not), it’s OK to want to do nothing else but nap and eat chocolate cake for five days straight.
#10: When life gets tough, keep riding. Always.* (The sign pictured below was posted at the top of a very steep hill on a bike path in Virginia.)
*For those now wondering, I’m completely fine. I know some of you out there might need that sign though. <3
