backyard fun

We snapped these pictures really quickly in our backyard before leaving for dinner with friends, so they're nothing fancy. We are both wearing purses that Savannah made recently. Soon we will be selling totes like the one I'm wearing, and we are also working on a crossbody bag pattern. We landed a really good deal on some beautiful brown leather, so expect to see some goodies coming from that soon. Honestly we are a little nervous to work with it :) Well, hope ya'll are off to a good week!

recipe: lemon garlic coconut oil dressing

The best dressing that I have ever had was this lemon garlic dressing from Tessemae's. I gave out samples for them and fell in love. All of their dressings are made with very few ingredients, all of which are real things. Which is great, because we all want to know what we are eating, right? This one in particular is made with 5 ingredients. So when I decided that I wanted to make a dressing with coconut oil, this is the one I wanted to try to recreate. But also, it's only 5 ingredients... so it's not complicated at all.
Lemon Garlic Coconut Oil Dressing
Ingredients:
- 1 cup coconut oil, melted
- The juice of one lemon
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper

Directions:
Mix all ingredients together.

Now this dressing doesn't sit mixed for very long. I store the dressing in a small mason jar with a lid on the counter. I use a spoon rather than pouring it from the jar though. It's delicious! Try not to drink it though... I was pretty tempted to do that myself.

keep on dreaming

This is a lyric from an Eli Young Band song and I love it so. It's so appropriate for my life right now. I, along with many of my friends, am in a place where I super don't know what tomorrow holds. In a place where I have dreamt up thousands of different paths my life could take. I have so many ideas and hopes and dreams and they keep coming every single day. I am constantly realizing dreams that I never knew I had. It gets overwhelming at times because it seems nearly impossible for all of these things to happen simultaneously, at least as far as I can see. Especially when so many times, a dream dies. The things is, things will happen the way God intends them to, so I will keep hoping for the times where he shows me His dreams for me. I will keep dreaming and weed through them until I know the ones that align perfectly with His.

xo, Savannah
