Here’s a bit of life lately and totally random thoughts!
Picture is from my new iPhone 14 Pro!! I skipped a year of iPhone (13) but was ready to upgrade. When you replace your old phone, the new one isn’t a huge cost jump. The new iPhone is great, and I love the always-on lock screen. iOS updates are great too (everyone can get them). If getting a new phone is a digital issue for you, you should check out my course, digital chaos! I help you solve image headaches from today onwards using a system I call the mirror method. Makes getting a new phone easy.
Fall weather is here!
We are enjoying a cool down and the fresh air makes us want to be outside all the time! Lots of great September days.
And falling makes me crave beer!
I just discovered the amazing sports brewing! They make non-alcoholic beer that tastes very much like the real thing I was shocked when I first opened it!
I had been seeing this brand all summer and they sold it out in our pool but I didn’t have high hopes of getting an NA beer that tasted legitimate so I never ordered it. I recently saw Hazy IPA at Whole Foods and picked up a 6 pack and it was love from the first sip! I placed an order on the site for all the flavors I wanted to try. free shipping! (I was so annoyed that Oktoberfest was already on sale.)
I’m here to tell you that this beer tastes a lot like the real thing, and I honestly don’t even realize it’s not included! This is great because I’ve been working on reducing alcohol in my life (I don’t intend to give it up – just always trying to cut back for health reasons!).
My favorite so far is the blue can – Run Wild IPA – but the Cerveza Athletica was great too!
Also seen around Cville in Vita Nova this water tasted delicious. Now if only I could find an NA wine that I would love! Do you have any good taste?
We caught up with some friends for a real beer at the Pro Re Nata brewery, halfway between Cville and Waynesboro where Birch’s BFF moved this summer 🙁
These guys play really well together!
The food trucks we were planning to enjoy that day were closed, but we went to Smoked for BBQ instead. Tasty!
They were born 4 days apart!
Mazen + Thomas
Best friends too! They love to go to the downtown mall together and get pizza and then spend an hour searching every item in the toy store 🙂
With the fall comes the survivor!
I’m rooting Lindsay Carmine which is about my age and from North Carolina. It must be a great season! Hilary and Elaine came to watch the first episode with Coconut Lollipops from La Michoacana. Incredible flavor!
Located on the farm
We went to a party with friends and birch was scattered all over this jar. And watermelon!
