Italians love their cheese and they sure love their cured meats. Everywhere we went in Tuscany, we were served cheeseboards and charcuterie. Oh, and the seafood! They make the most delicious seafood. It almost always came on a wood cutting board and it was always amazing.
At our wedding, there was wine corks everywhere! And we’ve collected wine corks from just about every place we’ve ever been to. Either as gifts while on trips or peace offerings from travels of those we know or just from simply popping our own bottles, we have hundreds! Insert Wine Cork Guest Sign-in Table idea here.
Florida weather can certainly be crazy! It might not snow—I wish—but from one day to the other it can be freezing, and; then, suddenly it’s boiling. In the last few weeks, it’s been so cold that we’ve been able to keep the AC off. We’ve even had the windows and sliding doors open. It’s been amazing weather!
Whether we’re going on a long road trip or not, we look to stock up on different flavors of Larabar. These are not the most inexpensive protein bar on the market. We also like to stock up on Clifbar. And the same goes for those as well. One of my all-time favorite flavors has got to be banana nut, hands down. Hence, the fact that it’s my favorite fruit.
Our Essential Oil Pain Relief Roll-on is an amazing combination of gingeroot, tea tree, wintergreen, eucalyptus, clove, rosemary and Vitamin E oils in order to achieve a pain-busting potion that is close to nothing of that on the market. All natural and homemade, you cannot beat that. My favorite part is that you can change up the recipe to whatever you have on hand. If you have a few more drops of clove than you do of eucalyptus, take the burn! Whatever works best for you, your body and your family. This combination is what works best for us. It has proven to heal us time and time again.
Let’s talk about our family File Organization System. Getting organized can be tough especially while juggling a very busy life. Sometimes papers can pile up in a basket or the corner of our desk and if one of us doesn’t put a stop to it right then and there, it can go on forever. We have a mail basket conveniently located in the kitchen. It’s basically a white washed wood pallet chalkboard sign with a chicken wire nest in the front. We put all our letters in there when we first get home. Slowly, all our papers migrate to the home office and collect themselves around the printer. Again, this could have gone on for days if we let it.
We love to make mason jar meals to prep for the week. We fill them up with different fresh salads, breakfast parfaits, chicken chop-chops, and more. One of our latest favorites to fill up mason jars with is this Thai Peanut Broccoli Slaw.
A pinch of the Irish to all those not wearing green today! I’m rocking it out with my high waisted green pencil skirt from the Luella collection at Target last century. Haha. I’m serious. It is from forever ago but Luella is still in style and this skirt is still bright and festive.
