Terrific Tip Tuesday: Say CHEESE!

Welcome to the latest installment of Terrific Tip Tuesday!

I’ve battled with my lactose intolerance for my entire life, which is awful, because I LOVE cheese. (I also enjoy ice cream, and milkshakes, and so many other dairy products…but I LOVE cheese.)

During our visit to Windsor last summer we made some delicious vegan cheese (which I continue to make even now) but every once in awhile I want the real deal.
Thankfully, PC has created an entire line of lactose free goodness. We heart you PC!

But why stop there.

Why not make lactose free cheese at home!

Joy and Gratitude

Butter! Delicious, delicious, butter!

To you, it might look like nothing. Two jars, kinda lumpy.

To me it looks like joy. It sounds like giggles and singing. It tastes amazing. I’m filled with gratitude when I look at it!
I really do have the best job in the world! Teaching tiny humans little life skills like this is the best!
Will they remember how to do it when they grow older? Probably not. But the joy of the activity will stay with them!

We served our butter alongside a delicious, home cooked, holiday meal with our work families.

How are you creating memories this holiday season? How do you create them in your life daily?


Terror in the Bay!

What an exciting time October was. (We’re still debriefing from it! Yes, it’s December :))

There was a horror movie festival, Terror in the Bay held on my birthday weekend! This was the first year for the festival, and I hope it continues!

While I didn’t get to attend the whole weekend, I did get to experience most of the first night! It made for a fantastic birthday!

I wasn’t able to find all of the trailers, but if you check out the Terror in the Bay Facebook page you’ll be able to find out more information!

K is for Kombucha! (Terrific Tip Tuesday!)

K is for kombucha, that’s good enough for me!
K is for kombucha, that’s good enough for me!
Because kombucha fills me with gleeeeee!

In all seriousness, kombucha is definitely good enough for me!

Today’s Terrific Tip Tuesday documents my journey so far with kombucha.

I like to think that I’m still in the baby stages of this process. Here’s what I know so far…

September Wrap Up

September was another rough month for us. A good friend unexpectedly passed away early in the month. We struggle to find the words to express our sadness at his passing.

Justin, you once told me that “all takeoffs are optional and all landing are mandatory.”

In my younger years I thought this was just a poetic way of saying gravity is a bitch. Now I take it to mean it is up to ourselves to start the many adventures of life but all life’s adventures must come to an end. You accomplished many great things in your short life and you will be truly missed. The world is a darker place without your smile in it.

Rest easy friend. We all look forward to our next adventures with you.
E & L

September, as it always seems to be, was a busy month for both of us.

June, July & August Wrap Up

L: Oh boy, the end of July and beginning August we’re SO awesome! I got to visit E in June too and that was super exciting.

The biggest and most exciting part about August is that we….went on an adventure!
We’ll talk about that in another post though! 🙂

Then the usual stuff for me…
I watched so many things and read SO much during these months…I’m so proud of myself!
Highlights would include – reading HP aloud during our camping trip, How to Get Away with Murder, OUAT… so much! Played some Mario Maker and got back to playing Little Big Planet with our friends.
Kombucha production took off, the garden finally started to grow…
As I mentioned previously, I went amethyst hunting.
SO much abundance, joy and gratitude happened!

I’ll let E sum up our adventures this time 🙂
