MINT CHOCOLATE NICE CREAM


I'm currently in Washington, camping with mom on a month-long road trip. Wrote this post about a month ago and now I share it with you, my darlings. X

Thoroughly satisfying and really quick to make (what else would you expect from me at this point?) I'm usually an all-chocolate-all-the-time kinda kid, the thought of mint + chocolate doesn't do much for me... UNTIL I make something with mint + chocolate. It's such a winning combo and for better or worse, always brings me back to sweet memories of After Eights

TWO-MINUTE CAMP OATS


Mom and I are almost done with our month-long road trip across the states. It has been EVERYTHING I needed and wanted to be... and so much more. I have the adventure bug now and I know that when I get home, I will certainly enjoy my bed, but I am so ready to just go on more trips. I don't wanna sit still.  I want to experience life to the fullest while I can and be stuffed full of special moments by the time I fee like settling down (if that time ever comes).

PEACHES 'N' NICE CREAM SMOOTHIE


I made this in southern Minnesota for myself, mum and the grandparents. They actually really liked it!? As I type this I'm in Minneapolis (IT IS FREAKING HUMID HERE), but when I post this I'll probably be riding through another state somewhere, off to more adventures. The past few days mom and I were camping at Gooseberry State Park with friends - AMAZING - and before that we spent a week with family further down in the state. We've been on the road for over two weeks now and I'm having such an fulfilling, incredible time. This trip is giving me everything I needed, wanted, and more.

DELICIOUS MOMENTS ON BAINBRIDGE ISLAND { a travel post }


This is a travel post. I am currently on a month-long road trip with mum, across the USA to Minnesota and back home again to Vancouver, Canada. We are staying with friends, family and our tent along the way. Originally she was supposed to do this trip on her own but after I had my heart smashed into a million pieces AND simultaneously suffered a mental health crisis, she invited me with her and I figured it was pretty much the best idea ever. I was not wrong. We've had a ton of wonderful experiences together already and I know there's only more to come. 

The photos in this post are from the beginning of the trip, when we stayed with raaad friends on Bainbridge Island near Seattle. There were wild apple trees and berry bushes everywhere, tons of nourishing meals made from scratch enjoyed around the fire, mud masks on the beach, and a lovely kitty. It was a magical few days that were ripe with spiritual power and emotional rawness, sisterhood, non-judgement and healing.
