Travel Photos: California Dreaming

I recently got back from a trip back to my hometown state, California.  It was incredibly beautiful & looking back at photos I can’t help to feel grateful for my wonderful family.  I spent as much time as I possibly could along the California coastline, soaking in the sunshine (with SPF 90+!) & watching my freckles multiply.  There’s something about the mystery of ocean that makes me stand in awe & truly appreciate this amazing life we’ve all been given.  I hope you enjoy I few snapshots from my adventures!

Btw… I think I love peacocks way too much & still can’t believe I got to hang out with some of these beautiful creatures. Xoxo’s!

Flavor Infused Summertime Teas

With Summertime just around the corner, we can’t stop dreaming about hanging out with friends & enjoying an iced cold tea on the porch.  We decided to add a little twist to the classic iced tea by adding infused flavors & could not be more happy with the outcome! It was so much fun playing with flavors, and we can’t wait to enjoy these delicious beverages in the hot summer sun.

The great thing is many of these ingredients came from our homemade garden!

Check out our homemade garden here.

Here are the three yummy favors we came up with:  Lemon Orange Tea, Berry Rosemary Tea, & Vanilla Infused Mint Tea (Our Favorite!).

Take a look at our adventures with infused flavors below:

Lemon Orange Tea: Half an orange & half a lemon twisted.

Berry Rosemary Tea:  Frozen berry medley (ours had strawberries, raspberries, blackberries & blueberries), sprig of rosemary (crushed & as garnish) & we made heart shaped ice-cubes with berries in them as well!

Vanilla Infused Mint Tea:  Handfull of mint crushed & drops (or teaspoons!) of vanilla extract to taste.

 And Voila! Ordinary tea turned extraordinary!  It’s amazing how a few simple ingredients  can transform the traditional summertime tea.

What’s your favorite summertime drink?

Xoxo!
