What I Learned at Cherry Bombe Jubilee 2016

There were so many lessons that were repeated throughout the day. Be passionate. Be focused. Take Care of Yourself. Community Matters. 

Cherry Bombe is a community that happens to also be a magazine. It is a meaningful network of women who are supportive of each other and have a shared obsession: food. The idea behind Jubilee was to bring everyone together for a day and share ideas and inspiration.

Some of the best tips of the day came from Jasmine & Melissa Hemsley, who just released an awesome new cookbook Good + Simple. They offered their top 10 “Things We Know For Sure”:

  1. Follow Your Bliss
  2. Dream & Dream Big
  3. Grow Slow & Be OK With Saying No
  4. Get With Your Gut
  5. Meditate
  6. Detox Your Life, Especially Digitally
  7. Fight For What You Know Is Right
  8. Sleep More
  9. Work With People Greater Than You
  10. Health is Wealth So Make Soup 

and the bonus Happiness is Gratitude.

Here are some other nuggets of wisdom from Cherry Bombe Jubilee 2016:

  1. White Space - Find Something That No One Else is Doing, Be Original, Authentic, True & Real
  2. Passion is a Magnet, It’s When Angels Show Up
  3. Put it Out There, Be Vulnerable
