Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Hello, how is your week? I saw a meme online that said: ‘that space between Christmas and New Years where you don’t know what day it is, who you are or what you’re supposed to be doing’. Even though I’m going to work this week, I feel like I’m right there.
In many ways it gives me space to think about what I would like to do differently in 2017. I am planning to make a happiness project for 2017, inspired by Happier, one of my favorite podcasts. My goal for January is to make cooking a slow event and less of a chore (I’m looking guilty here). Plus, eating more breakfast for dinner to have more free time.

Looking back at 2016, I am incredibly happy that I started this Happy Friday series. It might not be perfect (neither am I), but I truly enjoy listing my favorite links and articles online. In addition: I really cooked wayyyy beyond my comfort zone (hello, wedding cake!) and I couldn’t be more proud. In below gif (!), I added my absolute favorites: Lomo, Duck Ham, Wedding Cake, Sprinkle Cake, Confetti Cookies, Macarons, Chocolate-Chip Cookies, Chocolate-Coffee Cups, Peanut-Butter Cups, Caramelized Macademia Nuts, Ginger-Salted CaramelsCarrot Cake, Geode Cake, Deviled Eggs with Caviar and Macaron Cake.

Other than that I came across the following reads that I thought were wonderful to close off this year.

Stop spending so much time in your head. The argument to live in the here and now. Ted Radio Hour had a wonderful episode touching upon the same reasoning on how to be simply happier.

I am a huge fan of productivity books and techniques, and – of course – also enjoyed this read. Since I installed the Get Focused app, I’m a huge fan of the pomodoro technique.

And an old read to remind ourselves that some things need to be enjoyed slowly and that things sometimes really come with spending time.

Wishing you a wonderful 2017.
