Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends! How exciting is it that it falls on a Friday this year? Since, let’s face it, it’s going to be a weekend-long event for many of us, we thought we’d share one of the simplest recipes we’ve come across to-date, for one of the most delicious meals, that you can enjoy all weekend long and maybe for Taco Tuesday, too.
I don’t think I recall there ever being a year that was so upsetting to so many. I’ve seen countless memes and posts and videos over the past few weeks and months in which people call out 2016 as being “the absolute worst.” And as hard as I try to be a positive person through and through, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t more than ready for a new year.
Brrr… it’s been a winter for the books and we’re only just getting started! We’ve already spent countless evenings this month hunkered down inside, safe from the blustery winds, frigid temperatures, and the ice and snow that continue to build up on our streets and sidewalks and window panes.
‘Tis the season for shopping like mad, friends! While it always feels good to search for and choose the perfect present, wrap it up, and watch the joy on the recipient’s face as they open it, there are so many ways that we can go above and beyond, for a greater cause, when gifting to our loved ones these days.
“And sit together, now and forever.
For it is plain as anyone can see:
We’re simply meant to be.”
It’s hard to believe that it was one year ago today that we launched Beard + Bloom. I remember being filled with such excitement and anxiety in the weeks leading up to making our site public, and thinking, I wonder where it’ll be this time next year?
So far, December in the Midwest this year has been rather interesting. We’re experiencing extremely warm temperatures for this time of year, and lots of sunshine. It’s made it a little too easy to forget that the holidays are just a couple of weeks away!
