Being on time has always been important to me. I am of the school that if you are early, you're on time. If you are on time, then you're late. When I went into business, I applied the same principles. There are tons of caterers in DC, so I decided my superpower outside having great food would be timeliness.
I am easing into November. Everyone seems to be in a hurry to get past 2020. I'm not sure why because there aren't any guarantees for 2021 unless they know something that I don't know. Even with this, what seems to be an everlasting epidemic, I had a nice Summer.
This may come as a shock to many of you, but I love food. I always have. It's my pacifier. It makes me happy. Especially bread. I often joke that the reason some people are still alive today is my immediate access to onion bagels. I have one almost everyday, at home or out.
Hello 2021, finally. I was really getting annoyed at 2020. You get used to the inevitable “happenings” caused by the pandemic, but I had finally had enough when one of my favorite stores closed, Pier 1. I would go there to get all things Ginger Peach. My candles, my diffuser oil, my car spray. I’ve been looking for weeks for a replacement fragrance, to no avail. This was the beginning of the end.
I woke up this morning feeling refreshed. I knew that I had a great night's sleep, but I look at my Fitbit to see my numbers as confirmation. I usually take a few minutes of silent contemplation before I jump out the bed, so I did that as well.
A few years ago, a good friend and colleague of mine suggested we start to create vision boards at the beginning of the year. It would keep us focused on things we want to improve with our business and ourselves.
All this free time has given me a lot to think about. It's dawned on me that my birthday's coming up in May, and every year my dream gift is the same. I want a restored 1972 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible.
It's driving me crazy that people are not taking this Coronavirus situation seriously. I was in the restroom the other day, and a woman came out of the stall, looked at herself in the mirror, and left without washing her hands.
People don't often associate health benefits with alcohol but recent studies show there are some benefits to moderate drinking.
May stave off dementia. Moderate drinkers are 23% less likely to develop dementia.
They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. So, I have a confession to make. My name is Leah and I'm a Foodie. Where's the problem you may ask? I came to the realization I ate out entirely too much this month.
I have seen some horrible behavior lately. I would just attribute it to the stress of the past year. Except some people were rude way before the pandemic. People’s actions are getting a little out of hand. Everyone is not built for long term uncertainty. So when I overheard a conversation about being nice versus being kind, my interest was peaked.
I use to read for pleasure, all the time. I would get a book at an actual bookstore on Friday and would not put it down until I finished it on Sunday. I would borrow books from friends and family and could give them back in a few days.
