This is one of the prettiest drinks because the color is bold. This has to be healthy because Ree is putting in both fruits and veggies. That alone, knocks me out of the mix! Try this and let me know your thoughts!
Gabbin’ About Gratitude
Two weeks ago, I attended a family picnic in Geneva. Later that night, I was talking to my cousin, Cary, and we agreed that we are blessed to have such a warm, loving family. I love spending time with my extended family. The picnic was also a time to touch base with my sisters and their families. Life is so short and unfortunately I do not physically see many of my family members in person. Oh well, I am just going to savor the moments we have together and bask in that happiness.
When I was seven years old I had a life changing accident on “the big hill.” This was not just a gently rolling hill but a steep street at the bottom of our subdivision. We rode bikes a lot and on that fateful day I started down the road to escape being caught during Bicycle Tag. There was some loose gravel on the road and my bike slipped and I flew over the handlebars and landed on my face. I had a lot of scrapes, but the most upsetting to me was a chipped front tooth. I was very upset because it was a permanent tooth. For years I had a discolored cap, which was embarrassing to me. I hated my smile in pictures.
About 10 years ago, my fabulous dentist, Steve Baginski, suggested that I get veneers. As long as we were doing one tooth I decided to put six on the top center teeth and truly improve the look of my mouth. It is amazing how something so small as new teeth can change how I felt about myself. A big thanks to Steve Baginski for his expertise and advice.
