Last weekend we had such sunny weather it was so nice to get outside and enjoy the spring air. It was one of those weekends where there wasn’t an agenda or deadlines we had to keep up with, it was just time to relax and be ourselves. We made healthy meals the whole weekend, planted flowers, played with the dogs, and then went on this bike ride! So perfect.
We went on the Luce Line state trail for 14 miles on the bike! Which was a serious workout but also really fun. The trail had a lot of runners and bikers out because of the nice weather but it still wasn’t overly crowded. The Luce Line actually used to be a railroad earlier in the 1900s so it goes on and on for miles! Halfway through our ride we stopped at a bay on Lake Minnetonka and just sat on the beach for a few minutes before mustering the energy to turn back around.
If you are in the Twin Cities area I highly recommend the trail if you want to get outside, see some scenery, and be active. It is also a horse trail in the summer months!
Happy earth day everyone! I hope all of you get the chance to get outside today and hang out with earth. The weather in Minnesota has been so great and I am excited to get outside today and be in the sun. I wanted to share with you guys a new lock screen that I made inspired by spring! Spring has a way of making everything fresh and pretty again after the long winter months. I also love how the days are already so much longer! I have also been loving how close I feel to God lately and I think along with the season he is also refreshing my heart. So with that, here is a pretty new lock screen that I am sharing with you guys! Head over to the Freebies page to get the picture to save to your phone and set as you lock screen/wallpaper.
I wanted to share the recipe for an awesome smoothie I sort of made up this week! Pretty much all of my smoothies are made up because I just toss whatever I have on hand in a blender and hope for the best. But this time I actually tried a little harder so that I could share with you guys a real recipe! To be honest, I still didn’t actually use measuring cups or teaspoons but I definitely eyeballed it and that has to be close to accurate.
