  1. Love this list – so many fun finds.

    My current food crush is lime – I’ve been sneaking it in everywhere, water, tacos, dessert. It makes everything feel like summer.

  2. I haven’t even read the “food etiquette on a plane” article yet, but already know I’m going to want to print it out and share it with some bothersome plane neighbors! haha
