This is the time of year when I purposefully get off the train one station early just so I can stop and smell the roses.
And while we're on the subject: please join me in helping my friend Emily build a beautiful, edible garden that we can all enjoy. She's reached her original funding goal, but every extra penny helps in a big, big way!
When I came across a post on Food 52 titled "Reading While Eating", I had to pause and give a smile. My mother has always been a staunch defender of her (along with anyone else's) right to read at the table, and although it's a habit I've always found a bit difficult, not to mention messy, to master, I'm all for it. Reading anywhere, anytime, is a-ok by me.
Accompanying the post were beautiful photos by Juliette Tang, from this incredibly wonderful series. I'll save you the rant about e-readers, but honestly--what can compare with these glorious, clunky, physical objects? Death to convenience. Fill up my coffin with books, books, books.
