I’ve learned that I cannot walk around barefoot in my house anymore. My feet need a tremendous amount of support. As a result, they hurt constantly!  This foot massager is helping. I love that it squeezes my feet. Each session lasts for about 15 minutes which is 14 more minutes than I get from my in-house masseuse (husband).

A lot of you asked me where this dress was from when I posted it on my Instagram Stories. I’ve been having really good luck with the dresses I ordered from eshakti. 

They always have pockets, which is really the best part! That, and you can customize them to fit your body.  Very helpful for us pear shaped ladies.

Simple Mixed Berry Crisp

Simple Mixed Berry Crumble with whipped cream is a wonderful summer dessert. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

There are three main reasons for me to make a Simple Mixed Berry Crisp.

  1. I bought too many berries
  2. I don’t have much time
  3. I want to make my Dad happy (he loves crisps!)

Simple Mixed Berry Crumble with whipped cream is a wonderful summer dessert. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Last month I made this mixed berry crisp for my dad’s birthday.  I served it at the end of a BBQ and it was well received!

See what was left when I went to sneak in a second helping (everyone beat me to it!).

The fruit in there is a combination of strawberries and blueberries. You are welcome to use whatever berries you have laying around. Maybe you picked some berries on the side of the road? That sounds romantic. That should have been on my Summer Bucket List.

Without further adieu, here’s a very simple way to pull together a crisp in a short amount of time.
