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!
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

Blend together until smooth and drink up — cheers!
Here kicks off that new inspo-train I talked about above!
Craving this hot chocolate (Molly is an inspo-train all by herself).
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.
