🖤This is Jerry. Our third rescued kitty. When we met him, he laid his head on my sons shoulder and tucked in his little face. Cole said “Mom he’s the one. My heart is telling me”. Jerry was four when we adopted him. We don’t know his history. Our vet said he has been in fights because he has nicks and scars on his ears. He was losing fur like crazy from the stress of being in a rescue facility. When we took him home he had a hard time settling in and getting used to our other animals. He scared very easily and would run and hide under a blanket or rug. When he had any contact from us, the interactions were always positive. He would purr nonstop and cuddle so close, as if he couldn’t get close enough. Jerry is known for his belly rubs. He famously grabs your hands with his paws and holds them until he can lick them. It’s the cutest thing. Jerry is thriving. His fur is beautiful and soft. He’s getting more and more comfortable around our other pets. Although he’s our oldest cat he is by far the biggest baby. He likes to meow until you pick him up to which he purrs contently. We just adore him. I’m so thankful my son was open to adopting an older cat. He most definitely deserves a loving, forever home. #adoptdontshop#rescuecatsofinstagram#rescuecat#petsmart#jerrythecat#tabbycat#crazycatlady#themorethemerrier#iwantmore#instacat#thatface
#scandinaviaorkeywest ? Ok, bad pic, but seriously, it’s not always fun to live in the dark parts of the world (Scandinavia) with so little daylight in the wintertime. The #northernlights just aren’t enough to keep our vitamin d-levels up. And I happen to love colors. Design, art, and architecture is not colorful in this part of the world. Honestly, we are all just born somewhere. It’s not like you pick a place. I just feel like I was born in the wrong part of the world. I love expressions, opinions, colors, music, dance, socializing, discovering, exploring, learning, seeing new things. I love heat, the ocean, yoga, life.. and sometimes Scandinavians just seem to not live life. To me, a life lived in a phone is not a full life. Wearing gray or black, acting politically correct all the time, or being a minimalist is not my thing. Is it wrong to not love where you’re born? #iwantmore#bewildandfree 💕❤️💜💗💓🏄🏻♂️
I am sick of waking up every damn morning stressing about my weight and age. What the hell am I doing with my life? As I wake up and open my eyes I already feel like I just want to cry and scream! Why the hell cant I still to a plan to lose weight? Why can’t I love myself? Why can’t I go to the gym and workout? Why can’t I be happy? #mumlife#sodown#sadmum#iwantmore#feellikegivingup#whatisthepoint
The crew this morning. showing was the first part and riding the 32 miles was the last part. A year ago that was not possible or would not have even thought about it. I knew that I had to make changes as the habits and behaviors were not working. It has been challenging but the journey has been worth it. I have only started and much respect and grateful for these men that i run with. We all push each other to become that better version of ourselves. I thank you and a true honor. #azandassociates#brothers#cycling#dothework#committed#iwantmore#yougotthis#davidmoreno#realtor
I'm kind of in 💚 with #Absinthe. Recently at my #USBGOC meeting, I had the pleasure of being introduced to #St.Georgespirits #absintheverte. It was begging for me to show it some 💚 in a 🍹! At first glance, this cocktail appears to be a heavy dessert cocktail. It is far from heavy though. It is actually quite light and refreshing. Perfect for our change of seasons.
Every ingredient in this #cocktail separately are #delightful. Together, they are #harmonious. It's kind of like a #summer#symphony in your 👄. Can we just mention #oleosaccharum for a second? This is my new jam!! I'm late to the party as usual. However, this little technique packs a punch! Very satisfying.
Another successful blend of flavors all due to the help of the #theflavorbible. Thank you! I love this book! If you don't have it, get it! 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚 Where Did All The Fairies Go?
1.5 oz pink grapefruit infused Botanist gin

1 oz #lemon fresh pressed
.5 oz lemon oleo saccharum
.5 oz #honey and pink grapefruit infused

4 leaves #lemonverbena smacked and muddled
Bar spoon of fresh lemon zest in build and for garnish ( lemon zest garnish not pictured. I forgot! 😒)

Pictured, I accidentally forgot to toss my ice in the chilling glass before filing. Oops. Sometimes during a shoot I forget all my steps and don't read my own directions! 😂
Garnish: rim glass with oils from the lemon verbena, then place on top of cocktail. Take a hike and source some #fennel leaves and attach it to your 🍹 😉 #yum! Toss some fresh lemon zest on top.
For a more spirit forward version of this drink: more gin, more absinthe, no Crème, no clove 😂👍💃 #justagirlmakingcocktails#fairies#green # cocktailporn #goals#cocktailart#craftcocktails#beautiful#iwantmore
