My birthday was last Tuesday and I got the sweetest care package from my good friend, Clare. She sent me homemade stevia-sweetened jam, which I promptly mixed with some Greek yogurt, granola, and almond butter:
I also ate it plain – yes, it was that good, and it’s gone now. She sent me Wonderful Salsa, which was enjoyed with organic tortilla chips:
Delicious (and now gone as well). And she sent me Yogi teas! Here are the ones I have tried so far…
- Mayan Cocoa Spice – “let your manner speak for you”
- Ginger – “old age needs wisdom and grace”
- Ginkgo IQ – “to be great, feel great and act great”
- Egyptian Licorice – “the power of love is infinte”
These teas are delicious, and most are organic. Thank you so much Clare! I can’t wait to bust into the rest of the package.
Today is the first day of fall, my favorite season. I love the leaves, the smells, the foods (pumpkin, squash, apples), the holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving), the atmosphere: it’s just a fantastic time of year. Fall is a good time to be thankful, and I really am for so many things. I’m thankful for my friends, my family, my kitties, my life, my future, and everything that has happened recently to push me towards the career I want…
What are you thankful for?
