I sat as still as possible while a hummingbird floated in the air almost close enough to touch. We both all of the sudden seemed to notice the others presence. We look at each other for a moment before he returns to the flower at hand elegantly eating its nectar. The sound of its wings so close it's almost electrifying, the deep intense hum so beautiful in the late afternoon silence. A time when most birds are resting to stay out of the heat.
As I watch him move from one flower to the next his almost emerald green body glistens and shines like the sea basking in the sun. Then he's off leaving me only able to sit and wait until the next time he will come around.
While browsing though some local Minnesota blogs today I came across one talking about staying true to our Scandinavian roots and a NY Times article that noticed!
I am mostly Swedish with a hint of Irish and grew up with lutefisk and lefse on the table at Christmas. Swedish pancakes topped with lingonberries is still my favorite breakfast. And I love to fika! (to take a coffee break with something sweet).
Here is the NY Times article that you should definitely check out. Especially if you like food even half as much as I do:
The blog I discovered the link on is:
And the restaurant making the splash:
The Bachelor Farmer
Enjoy the read! I'm going to fika right now thought I'd love to be going to The Bachelor Farmer for a delicious meal!
Good Morning Babes,
Here's a few behind the scenes shots I found from some really fun stunt work i did!
On these hot (and humid) summer days beat the heat by first applying a base of sunscreen mixed with a tinted moisturizer. Next apply a light weight concealer. Then apply another light layer of the tinted moisturizer instead of foundation! Top it with a light layer of powder to keep it in place. Throw on a waterproof mascara and you're ready to go!

One of my favorite ways to get some great core and upper body exercise in the summer months is kayaking! Its a great way to get out on the water and enjoy the summer heat while working out. I like to wear my sun hat and keep my face protected from the harsh rays but love to get tan everywhere else (then just use bronzer if need to even out color!).
Get out and be adventurous this summer. Make friends with Nature and stay safe!
Rock & Love,
