These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I want to share a few of my favorite things that I discovered this year (2019). These things are not the most expensive, most popular, most beautiful. These things are simple. But they bring joy to all my senses and that’s what matters! Check ’em out – they might just make you happy, too!

For fun, I wrote this list set to the melody of the Rodgers & Hammerstein song, “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music.

Come sing along with me:

🎶 Gratitude bracelet and pecan tea cookies

Tiramisù kit and ‘Big Island’ shortbread

Two ‘Frozen 2’ songs that I love to sing

These are a few of my favorite things…

 

Lavender chamomile probiotic tea

‘Typo’ metal pens with monogram ‘D’

Organic deodorant that will not sting

These are a few of my favorite things…

 

Croissants from ‘Tartine’ and ‘Topdrawer’ postcards

“Dreaming Time Again” and “Reasons I Drink” –

Feelings of nostalgia these new songs bring

These are a few of my favorite things… 🎶

Supermarket Music

While wandering around Montmartre, I came across a Supermarché G20. I desperately needed to charge my phone and figured I, too, could use a quick pick-me-up to recharge. I noticed they were piping in music from the pop radio station, Chérie FM, and in between bites of my tiramisu, I found myself asking, “Siri, what song is this?” Her responses were:

Tu Réalises by Keen’V

Beautiful Trauma by P!nk

Face à face by Victoria (from Les 3 Mousquetaires)

Papa by Bigflo & Oli ft. Notre père Fabian

Tuesday by Burak Yeter ft. Danelle Sandoval

I got a deliciously strong espresso for only 1€ from this delightful machine

As the saying goes, music is the soundtrack of our lives. It’s true, because from now on, these songs will remind me of my coffee break on Rue d’Orsel.
