Bekka Palmer rules for wandering…

We all need to get lost on purpose once in awhile. Take us out of our comfort zone, allow us to discover something new and be completely open to it. Bekka Palmer and pals have come up with just such a way to get lost by wandering. Use her photo above for inspiration, check out her rules, Bekka Palmer rules for wandering…. and let me know what you discover!


Listen: Needing/Getting (a smile)

OK Go – Needing/Getting – Official Video – YouTube.

I adore OK Go! Their videos always make me smile and wonder…How do they pull off the amazing feats and sing at the same time? Seriously. I guess I am not such a great multi-tasker. I also love the fact that they sold the guitars featured in the video and donated the money to charity. Way to go, OK Go!

Sip: Cucumber Cooler


On a recent Saturday night, Rick and I had decided to experiment a bit with the random ingredients in our fridge and bar cabinet; hence the Cucumber Cooler was born! It is always such a hoot when those thrown together concoctions actually turn out to be something delightful. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Cheers

Cucumber Cooler

1/4 c diced, peeled organic cucumbers

1/2 organic lemon (freshly squeezed juice) 

1 oz  high quality gin or vodka

1/2 oz agave syrup

4 oz club soda

Add cucumbers and lemon juice to shaker. Muddle. Add spirit of choice and agave syrup. Shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds. Pour contents into an 8 oz glass filled with ice and top with club soda. Garnish with small cucumber triangle or mint.
