Watermelon Sorbet

I told you this post was on its way! The other week I knew Dave would be traveling for work, but I bought a whole watermelon anyway. They looked so good! So now I was home alone with a whole watermelon to finish. So I made sorbet! And here is the recipe for you!

NYC Through Instagram

This Saturday I went to NYC with mom to see a play for her birthday. We saw The Best Man on Broadway. Turned out to be warm and sunny and a great day to visit the city!

My awesome new thrifted bag.

First off, I carried my new thrifted over sized clutch. $11!

Crate, new or reclaimed! Use coconut husk or burlap to line it with.

Upcycled colander!
