zucchini avocado tartare + monday motivation

Good Monday morning! I spent this past weekend surrounded by friends and family outdoors in the sunshine. Yeah!

Spending time outside with Miss S soaking in some Vitamin D was long overdue thanks to a longer than usual winter but the warm weather is here and we are ready for lots of fun in the sun!

Here is an amazingly fresh, healthy and raw appetizer that was a hit with some friends we hosted this weekend.

This fabulous  Zucchini and Avocado Tartare recipe inspiration came from Summer over at Radiantly Raw. I will be making these again very soon!

I also want to give you a little Monday Motivation as you being a new week.

I want you to know how absolutely beautiful and perfect you are. You radiate love and beauty through the words that you speak, the thoughts that you think, your actions and how others feel when they are in your presence. Believe in your god given talents and gifts. You are the ONLY you, and that makes YOU perfect.

I hope you are greeting today with a gracious heart and a mind that is open to all the amazing awesome possibilities that is available to you this week. 

Go and show the world just how amazing you are this week friends!

Sending so much love + gratitude your way,
