Aside from the new dishes, plentiful leftovers, and a freezer packed with goodies, there are dishes, messes, computer troubles, steep grocery bills, minor breakdowns, and taste-testings gone wrong.

Lazy Saturday morning in bed. Sunshine. Stretching. Fresh juice. Walk. Sometimes the most simple weekend mornings are the most enjoyable! I only wished it lasted longer before all the work started. This juice combo was fantastic! ! It included 1 golden beet, 3 medium carrots, 1” knob ginger, 1 lemon, and 1 grapefruit. So good. […]
