Here are some of the everyday joys that have lit up my year.
Best breakfast: The entirely homemade breakfast served at In De Wulf the morning after (see picture above).

Favorite new way to prepare zucchini: as Raw Zucchini Noodles.

Favorite new feature on C&Z: posting monthly round-ups of links to document and share my recent finds and favorites.
Favorite reads: Rebecca Skloor’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah, Colum McCann’s Let The Great World Spin, and Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables (here’s the full list of what I read).
