Granola Bars, The Bare Hand Collective, & Salt Spring Island.

Picture

These granola bars are dang-near perfect. Well, maybe not really perfect perfect. Not the kind of perfect when a total stranger in the line behind you at the coffee shop finishes your sentence and that’s how you discover you are soul mates. Not the kind of perfect where the clouds roll away and the sun appears the moment you step outside for a run. Not even the kind of perfect where you go into the grocery store for one item, find that item in abundance, discover it’s 75% off. and stock half of your cabinets with them.They are, however, the kind of perfect that you need when your body starts to crave a lovely, sweet, earthiness, you need a morning pick-me-up, and you are trying to take care of your bod; the moment you remember you have a stack of these tasties in your cupboard on your way out the door. That’s a dang-near perfect morning moment, and I want to share it with you friends.

I have the privilege to write for a community paper that has been born out of the Ozarks called The Bare Hand Collective. It is a monthly collection of creative souls that are collaborating and sharing what is on their minds and hearts, and bringing that to the community. They have the September edition available online here.Why am I telling you this? Well, if you take a peek-a-roo at pages 15 & 16 of the paper, that’s where you’ll find the article & the recipe for the granola bars!i am proud & excited to share links to the BHC here on my website. They are dear, talented friends, & I am stoked to see where thjs adventure takes them! I will be sharing more BHC articles in the future, so stay tuned!

Here are a few last-minute round up pics of my vacation with husband & parents. Such treasured time & treasured people.

one of my favorite things about the island are these stands. some are full of fresh vegetables, ripe fruit, or farm fresh eggs. leave your money in the jar, take what you need. the sense of community & trust on the island is admirable.
