Get ready to step into my world as I unveil my top five favorite things that infuse joy, inspiration, and happiness into my daily life. From delightful experiences to cherished possessions, let me introduce you to my beloved Friday Fab 5:
Friday Fab 5
This is my favorite time of the day. Drinking my coffee in the early morning. I am not sure if it is the coffee or the routine that delights me the most. The heavenly scent, the luxurious taste, and the cozy warmth in my hands never fail to bring a smile to my face. It’s a little ritual that sets the stage for a fabulous day ahead. I must admit, I’m absolutely obsessed with Starbuck’s toffee nut flavor, and my collection of Starbucks cups from the states I’ve visited is rapidly filling up my shelf!
Embarking on thrilling explorations and immersing myself in diverse cultures is a passion that fills my heart with boundless joy. From awe-inspiring landscapes to hidden gems tucked away off the tourist trail, each travel experience broadens my horizons, forges everlasting memories, and reveals the breathtaking beauty of our world. Whether it’s a spontaneous road trip or a planned flight, my family and I are always up for an adventure. In fact, we recently had our family photos taken in the Tetons by my talented friend and fellow photographer, Kaylynne Sims from ela-photography.com.
The Power of Words:
As an ardent reader and writer, books are my constant companions. The written word has an extraordinary ability to transport me to imaginative realms through captivating novels, expand my perspective with insightful non-fiction, and offer solace during serene moments. This year, I was completely engrossed in a Harry Potter fanfic called “Manacled”—it was simply unputdownable. I also find immense pleasure in the works of Kristin Hannah and Taylor Jenkins Reid. My kindle is always near. AND I want to know what you are reading. Book recommendations are my favorite.
Capturing Life Through a Lens:
It’s no surprise that photography holds an unrivaled place in my heart. Through the lens, I can freeze time, capturing fleeting moments and immortalizing cherished memories. Whether it’s capturing the majesty of breathtaking landscapes, candid portraits that reveal the essence of a person, or finding beauty in the simplicity of everyday life, photography allows me to express my artistic vision and narrate stories that evoke deep emotions.
Food is not merely sustenance; it is a conduit for connection, celebration, and savoring the flavors that life has to offer. Exploring diverse cuisines, experimenting in the kitchen, and sharing meals with loved ones bring me immeasurable joy. From homemade comfort food that warms the soul to indulging in new dishes at local eateries, culinary adventures never fail to excite my taste buds. Interestingly, my husband takes the credit for whipping up a killer breakfast—we’re a dynamic culinary duo!
