Be Overwhelmed

Being amazed is a wonderful feeling. I want more of it, every day. 

Immediate plans include:

Take time to explore: We're off this weekend to tip-toe through the tulips. If you don't happen to have 100,000 flowering tulips in your immediate vicinity, find out what's happening in your city or be a tourist for the day and enjoy the stuff you only take time for when you have visitors in town.

Plant a garden: What a great way to celebrate Spring! Fresh herbs don't take up much space and they're wonderful to have at your fingertips. It's amazing what you can grow on a fire escape or balcony or even in your kitchen.

Refurbish old recipes: Check out America's Best Sandwiches - Veganized! for some great kitchen inspiration. I can't wait to try the Vegan Pibil Torta, veganized by Noelle, An Opera Singer in the Kitchen.

Love lavender:  If you have some leftover from the that delicious vegan fudge or the cool crock-pot oatmeal, use it to make these Lavender Vanilla Bean Scones.

Have a great date: Not up for cooking this weekend? Explore your neighborhood by checking out a new vegan restaurant near you with someone you love.

Treat yourself: to a sexy new pair of Cri de Couer peep-toes! No one is more amazed than I that vegan shoes can be gorgeous!

Sing out loud: Find some great music that lifts your soul. I've been positively re-obsessed with Jewel again. I've listened to Hands from her Spirit album at least 10 times today...and it's only 11am.

Give Back: Find an inspiring charity and learn how you can make a difference.

Be a Wayseer: All you rule-breakers, you misfits & troublemakers, all you free-spirits & pioneers… this is for you.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!
