Yummy and healthy go-to dinner for weeknights: Thai Chicken Salad from Jo Cooks. Instead of adding chicken breast, we picked apart a rotisserie chicken for the meat and saved the carcass for some chicken soup later.

Weekend.

Weekend sun and discoveries. Have you been to Melrose Market on Capitol Hill? Although the market itself is quite small, MM is surrounded by good eats, drinks and interesting trinket, clothing or furniture shops like Glasswing (make sure to walk up Pine Street towards 14th Ave.). I suggest you spend a lazy Sunday morning in this neighborhood brunching, strolling, snacking and shopping.

Early coffee and baguette at Cafe Presse; it’s not often that you see it so empty, and even less often that you get to sit in the corner booth.

“Smart girls are the over-thinkers, the different ones. They know what the real world is like. They analyze every little thing in life. Why? To avoid getting hurt. To find happiness. They stay up at night trying to think about every possible situation to get through all the problems. They think too much. They trust fewer people. Their insecurity proves their respect toward themselves. Of course they try to live away from a drama-filled life. Smart girls know their worth. Now those are the ones worth keeping by your side.”
