End of Winter Mood
The sun is out today and it feels like a really big deal. Spring is coming. That’s what I’m holding out for in the midst of this bleak winter. I don’t know about you, but I’ve hit a wall. It’s a lot, friends. Sometimes I wonder how on earth we’re supposed to sustain this level of intensity, and then I remind myself that none of this is normal. It’s my mantra on repeat: This is not normal. This is not normal. It validates my experience and also makes me feel overwhelmed.

I’m obsessed with labneh. Obsessed. I literally find a way to put it in/on anything. To me, it’s everything I love about yogurt, cream cheese, and crème fraiche. I love to add a spoonful to my salads, or enjoy it as a snack with fruit and honey, or with chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, and fresh herbs.

Allow me to introduce you to my house cocktail, the Rosemary Paloma. It’s a refreshing summer drink featuring my booze of choice: tequila. Besides being delicious and easy to make, what I love about it is that it’s not too sweet. The rosemary simple syrup adds a subtle savory note to this citrusy cocktail.

Summer Mood Board
Summer is here and I honestly couldn’t be happier to be shifting into a more relaxed, spacious mood. Despite the fact that my stress levels remain unchanged, I feel less reactive and more responsive. Even as COVID continues to turn life upside-down, life at home seems to have settled into a rhythm.
