New Week::New Theme: Tis the Season for Strawberries

Here’s a holiday treat that we can feel a little less guilty about eating. Amanda, of KevinandAmanda.com, takes the chocolate covered strawberry to a whole new decorative level. In their blog post she describes how easily she made these.

About themselves and their site Amanda states:

We love food, travel, Boston Terriers, and photography. I share my favorite quick and easy recipes, free fonts, travel photography, fashion and beauty favs, DSLR photography tutorials, home decor DIY and room makeovers, and photos and videos of my three crazy Boston Terriers.

Why strawberries (a delightful summer fruit) as the focus for a winter season theme? Well I originally chose “goodies” as the theme to cover all types of holiday treats. While searching the interweb, I found a ton of potential MotD images with strawberries being used in many fun and different ways. So much so, that I felt compelled to showcase them all week instead of just one day. Enjoy!

Inspiration For Today

From The Practical Herbalist:

People through the ages have recognized strawberry’s gentle detoxifying, antibacterial, and astringent properties; those same properties encourage us to gently prepare ourselves for the projects or fertile periods ahead. If strawberry has come into your life, perhaps it is time to clear away the husks of what came before to make room in your mind, body, and spirit for the new season dawning in your life.

As the new year approaches, let us release old self-sabotaging behaviors and replace them with new self-supporting beliefs and habits.

Happy Coloring!
