Gratitude of June

The year is half way through and enjoying every moment has been a task difficult to uphold. We seem to want to soak up every bit of sunlight and breathe in every afternoon rain. As I glance out the window and realize the fullness of this life- the greens, blues, purpels and silvers brushed across the canvas of my life- I want more- I want life. 
Perfection might never be attained- but laughter through failed attempts will continue to push us forward to the next chapter- with eyes wide open.


Before storing those delicious fresh berries, be sure to soak them into equal parts water and vinegar in order to make them last longer. The vinegar washes way all the impurities from the berries, allowing them to stay fresh longer. I have tried this myself with absolute success! 


1 Pint of Strawberries (raspberries, blueberries)
1 Cup of Water
1 Cup of white distilled vinegar 

How to: 
In a bowl, gently place the berries and cover them with the water/vinegar mixture. Let is sit for 8 min and rinse well. Let the berries dry before storing. A good tip is to place a sheet of paper towel on the bottom of the storage container to soak up any extra moisture. Place the berries in the storage container and enjoy fresh & clean berries!

Thank you for reading & blessings.
