VEGAN MINT CHIP SMOOTHIE.
Good morning, sweet ones. I stopped and started this post several times, because each time I began, I found myself writing something darker than the time before. My heart has been heavy. Heavy with Nice. Heavy with the United States. Heavy with Turkey. Heavy. One day I let myself sink deep into it, curl down into the sadness, and only emerge to paint my nails sparkly blue. It was the best I could do in that moment, and it was most certainly not enough. 

My father and I have been exchanging phone calls about all of the murders, the killings, the coups. Our talks often have long pockets of silence in them, heart openings so big neither of us have anything to say to fill them. We murmur things like just awful, can you believe, horrifying. And at the end of each call, we willingly attempt to dull our minds into submission, forgetting. Because that willing forgetfulness seems to be the only way to move forward.

Yesterday, though, I got a voicemail from my father that said something different.

The long weekend made better with a salted PB choc chip cookie dough nice cream bowl! ☀️

Best discovery - add an additional spoonful of PB just before you finish blending the base! Makes a delicious PB swirl! 😍
