These are a few of my favorite things

...people, places and things (food, of course) that have been making me smile lately:

  • Isharya jewelry
  • Sea lions.  They are the most curious, lazy, vocal, smelly and loveable creatures on the entire planet. 
  • Being able to completely forget about work, deadlines, returning phone calls, etc. while on vacation.  The ability to fully immerse yourself in holiday/relaxation-mode is truly priceless.
  • Bea Arthur as Dorothy Zbornak on The Golden Girls
  • My gorgeous & adorable god-daughter, Miss Blair
  • Finalizing plans to spend Memorial Day with some of my best friends in Austin, Texas
  • Cesare Casella
  • Saucisson sec (dry French sausage)
  • Shrimp n' Grits on L'Ecole's current brunch menu
  • Gazala Place's boureka
  • Morandi's Frittelle di Ricotta (ricotta fritters)
  • Brooklyn Larder
  • Salted butter
  • The Corner Cafe's everything-flagel with a thick schmear of pimento cream cheese
  • Grandaisy Bakery's potato pizza
  • Watching the leaves change color against the backdrop of brownstones in Brooklyn and the West Village
  • Via Dei Mille's pappardelle alla bolognese
  • Closing my eyes and dreaming of a bigger space
  • Buttercup Bakeshop's PB&J cupcake
  • Chandeliers
  • Reruns of The Office
  • The candy bins, not the frozen yogurt, at Tasti D' Lite
  • Butterfield Market is selling select treats from Cheryl Kleinman and Payard
  • Thai iced tea-flavored bubble tea from Crazy Bananas
