a few things...

today i started my day with a cup of coconut milk, 2 spoons of coconut sugar, 2 minutes in the microwave delivered in bed. 

i love saturdays.

we have had some crazy busy weekends where we haven't been home.  so this weekend we are catching up with all the home "stuff". we are hosting a grad party next weekend so there is a ton to get done.   i am hanging out in bed on my lap top convincing myself it's time to get moving...
i thought i would share some cool things i came across this morning.

 conquering cancer..  one person at a time.

start your day with this video it moved me to tears, as it will you.  sending thanks to these incredible people who add so much beauty to this world.  people who work so hard every day to make a difference. may you be surrounded by love and kindness.

i am always interested in beautifying my home.  i am at the moment in the midst of a total mess here as we   the hubby finishes up installing the final wood floor.  one by one he has done each room.  they look amazing.  it is just incredible how much over flow comes from one room and spills over the entire house.  today i will spend the day putting things back together and purging....  luckily we have a graduation party next door which works out great because i can pop over and celebrate and still get lots done here.

while perusing the internet ( i know it's where i find so many cool things) i found these very intriguing palo santo sticks from south america.  they claim to remove negative energy from your home.  they boast a clean bonfirey scent and i think they would be cool to burn in a can on our deck while we enjoy some warm summer nights.   you can order them here.
a change from a candle or incense.

i am always on the look out for some new recipes, food, desserts or otherwise.  presentation is
always part of the appeal.  there is a new little shop in newburyport, ma that sells ice pops. that's it, just ice pops.   lots of unusual flavors.  i was totally intrigued, so immediately ordered a recipe book of mexican ice pops and a popsicle mold. last night i made my first batch, they were really fun and tasted delicious.  the base was coconut water, fresh pineapple, mango and grated coconut.  all natural, healthy, no processed sugar.  they are awesome.  can't wait to mix up some unusual flavors.

and while we are on a health kick and all natural stuff.  i definitely have to try this recipe.  how delicious and refreshing does this look?

find the recipe here...

hope your saturday is off to a great start.

love sent, xoxo
