Summer Camp

Does anyone remember what it was like going to summer camp with your friends?

Well I do and it brings me back to my childhood when I would go to camp in my home town. It was called 3 day camp and it was so much fun.  No parents, fun counselors, lots of food and activities, campfire stories and bonding with friends!  We slept in bunk beds and stayed up for hours talking!  I miss those days!  Now that I think about…we should create a camp like that just for adults!  How much fun would that be….outdoor activities, comfort food, friends, campfires stories and songs!

Today I sent my oldest daughter, Ella, off to summer camp for 5 nights/6 days!  She’s been going to camp since she was 5 years old, but I have to admit, it doesn’t get less emotional the older she gets!  Yes, I held back tears but tears of joy!  She was so excited and I can 100% understand why! She’s going to love the time with friends up north!

Take time today to appreciate the small things like summer camps, counselors, campfires and friends!   Today, let go of your daily stresses and reflect back to the good old days of summer!

Aww…what a wonderful memory!


Juicing Recipes

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone enjoyed some BBQ’s, fireworks and family and friends this weekend!

Since I love juicing and feel so much more energized and just plain healthy when I have a homemade juice everyday, I thought I would share one of my favorite juicing recipes!

Just Beet It:

2 cups kale (stem removed)

2 cups spinach

1-cup romaine

1-cup celery

2 small cucumbers

½ -1 beet (cooked)

Couple leaves of parsley

¼ lemon

1 Tbsp. ginger

If you want more of a sweeter taste, add a few slices of apple or pineapple and you will sweeten the juice up!

Enjoy and have a terrific full first week of July 2015!
