Anxiety Hack

[S]o much angst is generated at worrying about ourselves. Lots of research suggests that doing something nice for someone else generates a positive sense of well-being. If you find yourself overcome by anxious thoughts or feeling sorry for yourself about something, find something to do for someone else.

Sooooo true!

Avocados

Already ripe avocados? Get out of here with that nonsense, Ralphs. I’m from New York, where, in lieu of avocados, grocery stores put out six hundred petrified dragon eggs and shoppers must squeeze every last one of them before buying the softest but still rock-hard option, and then bring it home and watch it go from unripe to completely rotten without ever once being edible. That’s how New Yorkers do avocados.

This made me laugh.

Gah. I LOVE it when...

First Day of Fall

0191

Happy first day of fall, friends!

I was just thinking back to what I was up to last year and the year before on this very day. Although there are few blog posts in this time period, I have taken lots of photos to look back on.

Two years ago today, I was in Zermatt.

Two years! Gah, it feels impossible that it's only been two years. Feels like a lifetime. Watching the video made me a little teary. So much has changed, and somehow so little. (I literally wore exactly the same clothes this week. Slouchy jeans + gray sweatshirt really stood the test of time. :)

Life is insane. Even the little bit I know of it.

My brother turns 29(!!) today.

Alex is making Momofuku's Bo Ssam recipe all day today, and I'm so so excited to try it with Vova and Jackie tonight! For the first time in forever, Vova and I live in the same city. Being able to hang out, have brunch together at the spur of the moment is just the best.

Happy birthday, Vova! Thank you for being such a smart and wise best friend.
