SOMETIMES THE PATH IS WINDING

If you know me, you know the last couple years, I have tried a lot of different things both online and off.  It's been a bit of a winding path. AND it has been full of valuable lessons, beautiful memories and a better understanding of who I am, what I want and the things I want to invest in. 

That said, blogging is something I really love and it took trying some other things and taking a break for me to really figure that out. So I am back. I'm really excited about it.  

For now, I am committing to post only when I have something I want to say, or something I love that I want to share.  I'll be honest, I don't have time to post a bunch of fluff and you probably don't have the time to read it anyway. As a whole, our culture is way too busy and there is content everywhere  - I don't want to add to the noise or create more "to do" for myself. 

I do want to share my path with you - share some adventures, some beautiful things, lessons I am learning, share about my beautiful, lively city.  So that's what you will find here.

I hope you will share with me too.  Life is best when shared, right? 

ALSO, would you do me a HUGE favor and give me a follow on my new Instagram account? It would make my day! 

Peaches and Cream (No sugar, No fuss)

So, for the last couple months, to curb our nighttime sweet tooth, my husband has been making this very healthy snack that is just 3 ingredients, super easy + very yummy!

You need: 

Make sure you refrigerate the coconut cream overnight. Then you put the coconut cream in the mixer (We use our trusty ole Kitchenaid "Eleanor") for about 3 minutes on medium speed.  Then add your sweetener (skip the sugar for an extra healthy treat) and continue on medium speed for one additional minute. It turns into a pseudo whipped cream which is delicious served over some sliced fruit.  So good!

This is a "dessert" I wouldn't have ever thought of, but really enjoy.  That said, Michael and I had gone to breakfast one Saturday morning and much to my excitement they served some grapes (and cream) with my pancakes.  I sat there eating my grapes and whipped cream and when I had just two grapes left, my sweet husband said, "Are you dipping those grapes in your butter?" My eyes grew very large and I said...."I'm pretty sure this is whipped cream". He sticks his finger in the remnants left in the bowl and tastes it..."Vicky, that is butter...you just dipped your grapes in butter."  So yeah, I definitely ate a bowl of butter! But i really thought it was whipped cream.  Oops!

I can't wait for my first bowl of peaches and cream this summer!
