Monday!

honey-kennedy-pola-negri-beach

Hello! It was my birthday this past Friday and I didn’t get a chance to post, so I decided to do a Friday! post on a Monday. For my birthday, I bought myself more rose plants (shocker!), had brunch with a couple good friends, a manicure/pedicure with our niece and a mellow hang in the backyard. We extended the fun the day after by going to the ocean. It was so fun to spend the day on the Oregon coast with our niece, jumping in the waves and enjoying the whole stretch of beach. Of course, the news Friday that everyone in this country can now marry who they love was the happiest part. It’s a beautiful thing and makes all unions more meaningful when we can all choose to participate. It has taken far too long to get here. I hope this means we can move more quickly through narrow-mindedness and bigotry and get on the right track so everyone can have the happiest life possible — it goes by so quickly. HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK, FRIENDS! xo Jen

Rose Petal Ice Cubes

I LOVE roses for their beauty, scent and flavor, so I was excited to see this DIY Rose Petal Ice Cubes tutorial using Cardinal de Richelieu garden roses. I just need to figure out if my garden roses are safe to use. I imagine they’re probably fine because I don’t think the plants were ever grown with pesticides. A rose with smaller blooms than I currently grow would be easier to use to make this work, so I might try it with dried rosebuds and petals first. I also love that the classic sturdy steel ice cube trays are still available and that you can even get an ice cube tray stand to conserve space and hold up to three trays. These trays would be a nice gift for a classic cocktail enthusiast or anyone who loves those little vintage details. This Rose Petal Honey recipe looks great too! Rose everything, please.
