This weekend was so relaxing and rejuvenating. I take the weekend very seriously and self care is absolutely necessary in order to thrive.
This weekend included the Fourth of July so I got to have some pretty special eats. I love get-togethers because it's a great opportunity to make something fun for lots of people. Any chance I get to make something special I usually take it, and these sorts of outings are always a great opportunity!
For the Fourth I made these little star cookies. I asked my friend what I should make for the holiday and she sent me a link to the cutest little cookies. However, they were just store-bought regular cookie dough with a cream cheese frosting ... but they definitely got my brain werkin' ...
Our friends had a mini feast prepared for the Fourth festivities and had this little salad number prepared. It was absolutely divine, I loved it. I even recreated my own version a couple days later!
I ended the weekend at the beach. I let myself soak in the salty water and used the sand to scrub my skin. I love wearing my big, floppy hat and just laying in the sun. It is such a grounding experience and makes my body vibrate with the new found energy.
This weekend it was very windy at the beach. There have been a lot of storms surrounding us and so the waves were out of control. It was quite a workout just to stay in one place! So of course, I took advantage of the mini workout and just let my body do its thang.
And no lazy weekend morning is complete without some kind of indulgent breakfast ...
