These last gorgeous days of summer (because yes, the weather has been amazing & breezy & blue skies & sunshine) I plan on living it up, the way summer is supposed to be enjoyed.
Trips to the beach, the city, the mall for back to school clothes, and with my local girlfriends are all in the works.
I'm taking care of my people here, nurturing them (because they forget) and loving them up like mad. This beet/carrot/kale salad was a hit:
We're really into beets these days. They were roasted in the salad above, but Zak prefers them raw, so I added them to our garden tomato, caprese stacks.
These were so delicious with cracked pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Gone in a few seconds.
And then, there is me. I'm going through a lot of changes and I feel myself growing both creatively and spiritually. Some may not understand it or quite get it, and that's ok. I'm on a path that's new and it requires that I flex muscles I didn't even know I had. I'm doing a lot of writing and sharing my work.
One thing I am so thankful for is the friends I have who understand what I'm going through, and their support. It means a lot when people want to learn what I'm up to rather than project their beliefs or assumptions on my life. We're all doing the best we can. That's what I think anyway.
This afternoon's pick me up. It took a lot of veggies to make this much juice. Nothing beats my nurtri bullet.
With summer coming to a close (one more month!) I am looking forward to a new season, chilly weather, sweaters, everything pumpkin & cinnamon, traveling to Providence for Squam in the City (my family is coming with me!!), my birthday... 40 years!! Wow. Wow!! So much goodness ahead.
It will also be a new season to curate at Zen Boutique, and I have some fabulous items that are coming! Today I added the last of the summer items: a Tea Leaf Reading kit. Check it out here.
Hope you have a happy day.
