Bonjour février

[Hello February]

It seems like those winter days I longed so much for have finally decided to pop by. Yes, it was cold today. Of the frostbites and hot chocolates kind.

I opened the door to a package made of Impossible film. I walked with the only mitten I haven’t lost on one hand. I saw the sun set through the naked trees of the park. I sipped through a hot latte.
And I called it a day.

Right now, I have so much in mind. But mostly three things. Three things I cannot bring myself to say out-loud . Three things of the pinch me awake kind.

The not-so official February dream-list.

1. Driving to the lake district. For a lunch. And a dinner.
2. The last brioche recipe you’ll ever need.
3. And hopefully, the last croissant recipe too!
4. Airports, of all kinds.
5. Writing words onto my squared notebook.
6. Learning how to make the best coffee cup around.
7. Watching snowflakes float in the wind.
8. Bergamots. And laughing, uncontrollably, over them.
9. Looking forward to a daily midnight surprise.
10. Loosing track of time.

What are your dreams for those days made of cosy fireplaces, toasted marshmallows, and hot ciders?


  1. Would you mind sharing those brilliant recipes?
    Merci and thankyou, from New Zealand.

    Brioche recipe on the way. But for the croissants, I’m still tweaking a few things here and there. Waiting for the PERFECT recipe.

  2. Ah how I wish! February here will be a big question mark…either a burgeoning heat of an early summer or rains from the crazy monsoon. Whatever comes our way I’ll be ready with recipes and plans for spur of the moment jaunts! You have a lovely list there…especially looking forward to croissants!
