Post Surf Stack

Christmas came early here in OC! We’ve been graced with some really fun surf this past weekend and it’s left me feeling so grateful to be here in NJ this year.

Ash Wed 12/5

What I’m reading: I’ve been really enjoying this book by Leo Buscaglia. If you are in a teaching role of any kind (parents included!) you should read this book! What I’m listening to: I started this playlist at the beginning of the Fall season. I hope you love it as much as I do! Product I’m loving: I’m slowly slowly collecting Weck Jars of all different shapes and sizes. They are my favorite way to store grains, nuts, seeds, and spices! I love being able to see everything that I have on hand in this way. If you buy in bulk (like me!) then this is the perfect way to keep things fresh and easily accessible.
