This morning when I opened my email box for the first time after ten days being away from the screen, which was a much-needed break, I found lots of emails containing new year resolutions from pins, clients, friends. Honestly, I did not want to pay too much attention to my email box (just today) since most of the emails repeat themselves but it gave me food for thought.
I have a different take about this whole “resolution” thing people are so hooked about this time of year. I’m the kind of person who makes promises only if I know I am going to keep them. Sometimes challenging but doable. And so I decided to declare, and as a promise to my other half, my short to the point goal I should call it, not only for the new year but for each new day that is given to me. A promise that’s easier said then done. But I will do my best to keep it.
Dedicated to me, the Mr. and my family:
i will worry less.
i will worry much less.
and everything else
will pretty much fall
in the right place.
This is also the perfect time to share something special – a place I just visited for the first time and heard so much about – Lake Tahoe. Let me tell you – This. Place. Is. A.MAZING
Besides of the fact that we had to deal with a lot of ice, the change of scenery was like a fresh breath…and a cold one too. It was particularly surprising to me that Lake Tahoe remained sparkly and crystal clear as if it was a sunny summer day and at the same time surrounded by gorgeous white blanket of ice. In the morning a subtle layer of fog would cover most of the lake as I watched houses that were build right on the edge of the surroundings hills and imagine my house having a view just like that. I’m speechless.
I’ll let the pictures do the talking:
Now here I have to speak. Here not only did I worry less, I cooked less. We stayed at a beautifully constructed hotel that has a touches of modern and eclectic mix. Natural stone floors with muted color hand-made rugs. What a chic contrast. Bee-utiful. And of course, I always look at how food is presented and here is no exception – oversize dining table filled with desserts and sweet goodies. Not that I ate any of them.
I made no secret of the fact that I love to wash my eyes with beautiful food and beautiful things. I love the idea of designing food but not to a point where it becomes a museum piece, oh no. But home-made casually yet attractively placed and showcased, to make me want to touch it and eat it too. It was a delight to my eyes. (and no, I’m not on a diet).
