I don’t know about you, but I always feel that I am too busy to stop and take a break and “smell the roses”. Recently, a friend advised me (instead of rushing through my work week and desperately waiting for the weekend) to take at least a few minutes out of each day to look for and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us and to which we are often blind. Enjoy the small moments and make every day count!
Today, I was thinking how I have to finish this and that and how the weekend is not nearly long enough to complete everything I planed, when I remembered my friend’s words: “Go out there and find beauty!” So I did:
Hello friends! I hope everyone had a great start into the New Year. I think of this year as a year of changes and improvements.
My first resolution is to focus more on spiritual as opposed to material. I plan to spend more time doing things I love, things that make me and people around me happy. Inspired by my friend Korena’s post The List, here is what I plan to bake, make and do this year (and not necessarily in this order):
Hungarian Dobos Torte or here
All colors macaroons
Vacherin framboise et chocolat √
Croissants from the The Bourke Street Bakery, AU √
Baguette from the Bourke Street Bakery
Poppy Seed Strudel
Traditional Bosnian corn bread
Bosnian Begova Corba (or Bey’s Soup)
Stuffed Adriatic Squid
Reproduce a master painter piece or this one
Make a child portrait in pastel
Improve my watercolor skills
Paint a large scale painting or a mural
Travel here and here (very possible)
Travel here, here or here (dreaming about)
Explore my surroundings,
I would be happy to hear about your plans! 🙂
Love to you all!
