Happy Monday friends! Do you get Easter Monday off? I don’t. But that’s cool. I can only have so many days off in a row before I mostly lose my mind. Or lose the rest of my mind. Still not sure which it is.

I spent my weekend with food poisoning of some kind (sooooooo fun) but it was still a great Easter. I got a lot of time with my puppy and my thoughts, which can lead to good things sometimes. I made a lot of business headway, and watched a lot of HBO. Can’t complain.
I also spent a long time cooking (and eating) which is always a good time in this house. I also made a solid Thrive Market order, and I’m really stoked for its arrival. If you haven’t tried Thrive yet, do it. It’s super convenient if you’re trying to switch over to natural cleaning products (which is super important, btw) or if you just need to buy affordable healthy food… which, don’t we all????!!
Speaking of food, I figured I should give you this soup recipe before it gets too hot to cook, right? Right. This is one of the most flavorful, fun soups I’ve ever created, and I can’t wait for you to try it! Enjoy!
