Up on the blog this week, in preparation for another week of Social Distancing, I am taking a break from writing about Interior Design. I thought it would be fun to share some things I've bookmarked for the week ahead to keep my spirits up. So, I thought I would share some of my favorite articles, delicious recipes I’ve discovered, books I can’t put down, and podcast episodes I love. Hopefully you too will find inspiration in these things to get you through the uncertain times that lie ahead.

Books to Start
When Breath Becomes Air
In this time of social distancing, I'm doing my best to keep my brain healthy, active, and full of positivity. And what better way to do so than by reading!? So whether you’re digging through an old stack on your shelf or pressing download on a new title, I wanted to share this Best Seller. Paul Kalanithi discusses: What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away? These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir.

Recipes to Try
Chickpea Pot Pie
I made this recipe last weekend. It is hearty and delicious and the epitomy of comfort food. The recipe is Vegan and is sure to be a hit with the meat eaters too. But, you could make this with Chicken too.

Creamy Cauliflower Soup
I made this Creamy cauliflower soup a couple of weeks ago from my apartment here in Philadelphia. Made with leeks, cauliflower, white beans, and vegetable broth. Simple ingredients with flavorful results! This soup contains no-dairy, takes 30 minutes to make, and is the most delicious vegan soup! Give it a try!
