So Close to Home + Friday Favorites


Good morning, friends. Today’s post will start off a little differently than my usual Friday Favorites posts. Yesterday a tragic event happened at Seattle Pacific University. I was in shock and my heart sank as I was reading about it and watching the local news coverage. It was just recently that we were all watching the news about the devastating event at UCSB, and to hear something similar happen so close to home was just unbelievable to me. I’ve lived in Seattle my whole life- this is my home. Although I didn’t attend SPU or know anyone who attends, something like this affects our entire community. My heart goes out to the victims and families, as well as all SPU staff and students.

Due to the recent happenings, I will keep this post fairly brief. Below is a list of some of my favorite things:

  • Hibiscus Honey Lemon Tropical Green Tea

    I actually bought this tea while I was in Kauai. I’ve never had hibiscus tea before but I love the bold flavor. I haven’t been able to find it in stores but you can find it on the Hawaiian Islands Tea Company website.

  • Lavender scent

    Lavender is one of my favorite scents, which is why I use lavender scented body wash and massage oil. The soothing scent helps me relax and is very calming.

  • Mint smoothies

    I recently started adding a handful of mint leaves every time I make a smoothie and I love how it tastes. Maybe I should post a mint smoothie recipe sometime in the future? :)
