The concept of creating and sharing is blowing my mind right now. We all seem to be making something and seeking to share it with someone. A photo, recipe, invention, experience, taste, talent, or thought. We all have something to contribute to this world, and are doing it through sharing. On social media, the internet, in person, through an email, a book, a message, a gift, with our words, hands, brain, etc. Its mind blowing when you think of all the ways things are being shared every day. Especially now when we have a dizzying amount ways to share and receive information. Its non-stop. We are such an inspired generation of humans, and we are so because of each other. Sometimes its too much and I get the Pinterest-inspiration-overload-melt-down face and have to just throw everything down and run outside for a breath of fresh, calm, uninspired air. But then the beauty of outside and the cold crisp air on my face inspires me to go on more adventures. Or I see a squirrel do something funny and I laugh and am inspired to be like a kid again and well… chase it. Dang-it, I CANNOT ESCAPE. So in the name of chasing squirrels and having way too many ideas on how to deck out a gift using a chopped tree branch or some other earthy, hipster element – I’ve decided to start sharing a simple weekend recipe every Saturday morning alongside a list of links and things inspiring me that week! I hope you guys get something out of them too. Let the inspo-train keep chugging!

Immunity Tonic + Saturday Links | Faring Well | #vegan #recipe

This immunity tonic + tons of vitamin C have been kicking my head cold in the butt this week. It’s sweet, tangy, and has a kick! Make this cleansing, immune boosting drink whether you have a cold or just want to fight the good fight before succumbing to the sickness surrounding you this weekend.

flesh of 1 ruby red grapefruit
juice of two small tangerines
juice of half a lemon
juice of half a lime
1 inch knob of fresh turmeric, grated
1 inch knob of fresh ginger, grated
pinch of ground cayenne pepper
1/2 cup of cold, filtered water

Blend together until smooth and drink up — cheers!


Here kicks off that new inspo-train I talked about above!

Wanting (needing?) this book after Laura posted about it and this dish that has my taste buds buzzing.

Craving this hot chocolate (Molly is an inspo-train all by herself).

Dreaming of our little home we will hopefully build one day, like this one. And the fact that these tiny homes exist.

Loving what these people do.

This almost makes me want to do my hair one of these days. Almost.

HELLO skillet fries.

Wish I could be in the Twin Cities for round two of this crafty magic next month.

Happy Weekend!

    Flesh of a grapefruit? The skin?

      I can see how that can be confusing! The flesh is the juicy red fruit beneath the peel/skin :)
