Lately.

Friday, July 10, 2015

Midsummer snaps from Instagram and beyond: learning to make a tagine from this skilled chef in her dream kitchen upstate; the world's most perfect bagel, found at my neighborhood coffee shop (though that's an oft-debated subject); and a couple in honor of Father's Day, and my niece turning seven. For those wondering about the taped-up words: one is an excerpt from a poem I've loved for years; the other is a favorite line from e.e. cummings — your head is a living forest full of songbirds.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Mine will be a bit like the calm before a storm — my parents fly in to the city Monday, and my brother, Max, and his family follow on Wednesday. Then on Friday, we'll leave together for two weeks in Tuscany and Amsterdam. (Any travel recommendations, if you have them, would be so very much appreciated!) 

In the meantime, I'll be back here Monday — I'm planning to have Recommended Reading, Non-Career Advice, and a POV up before I leave!

If you are going to Tuscany try your very, very hardest to make it out to Montepulciano and go to the d'abruzzo vineyards! It's amazing.

Oh my - Tuscany!!! I've just been reading Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes and have been daydreaming about going there one day...

If you're in Amsterdam, don't stay in the touristic center all the time. Try to check the NDSM-werf. There are nice bars (Noorderlicht, Pllek,...) and vintage furniture shops (Van Dijck and Ko, Neef Louis). You can take a free ferry rear the central station.
Looking for a real good restaurant? Try Hemelse Modder! Visit DROOG, nice shop + hotel + resto.
I hope you have a nice time!!
