"the days are long but the years are short." I just read the "Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin, and I loved it. And this quote, which was featured prominently, just seems to fit the stage of life that I'm in right now.
It really got me thinking about what makes me happy and how I can do more of those things and to just generally have more joy. August is a month for savoring summer and gearing up for a darker season, so I'm going to try and share a little of the things that make me happy this month.
First off, nectarines and plums :) This cake made me so happy that I wanted to share it - it's from Gourmet Magazine's August 2009 edition. (Sniff, I miss you!) It's in the following post - I'm still as tech unsavvy as ever.
