Sharing The Love

Happy Monday my friends. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. We had Grace's party and it was wonderful sharing the day with our friends and family that have been such huge part of Gracie's life.

It's time for another "Share The Love" post! There are some things I am definitely obsessing over lately, so let's dive into them...

~Without diving in to my intense addiction to Starbucks, particularly iced soy chai, I have found an inexpensive, low calorie solution for myself and wanted to sure it with y'all. I have been cold brewing my own coffee. I am not a huge fan of hot drinks in general, and brewing hot coffee and then pouring it over ice is GROSS! I have been spoiled by my years of Starbucks, so I need a really good iced coffee to keep me from jumping in the car and buying a $4 mistake, every day! On Pinterest, DUH, I found a recipe for cold brew coffee and it has been my saving grace in the mornings. To view the recipe click HERE. I used cheesecloth to filter my coffee and preferred it to the coffee filters option. I will warn you, it is kinda a long process, but well worth the weeks supply of coffee that you'll have.:)

~Simple Syrup-to sweeten anything naturally! 2 parts sugar, 1 part HOT water. stir, to dissolve and allow to cool. I am in LOVE with this stuff. It seriously makes my coffee.:) I made a large batch and store it in the fridge for use in iced drinks.

~Re-designing my website. This is round 5 for me, except this time, I am keeping it relatively similar to my last site. The new site will be launch later this week! I never thought I would create an entire website by myself, but Showit has given me to tools to make my vision successful and I am SO thankful for them. This will be my first website I am launching that was built from a blank canvas, so I am super proud of it. Can't wait to share it with you guys!

Have a beautiful day...
