The lens-artist theme is LESS IS MORE this week (here).
For my take, I have photos from this weekend.
We prune back certain shrubs and plants because they are healthier this way.
Second, I was visiting family in Charlottesville this week. I looked up to see this beautiful color towering over us. Basic blooms bringing joy.
Do you see my logo on that first image? A white box.
I realized the white box might be too much.
On this next photo I have a more subtle logo.
Do you think the lesser logo is better? I do. And which tree bloom upview do you like better? A or B
When I first looked up and saw those colorful blooms, I thought of Neapolitan ice cream.
Doesn’t it sort of look like the colors in Neapolitan? It is funny how that trio mix is now considered very basic for ice cream options – but while growing up – it was exciting to get that mix at home. And at our house – the strawberry was the last to go. Oh and my husband has a recipe for homemade ice cream that is super simple: coconut milk (or coconut cream), stevia, dash of salt and cocoa. The secret is using an ice cream maker. Mmmmm Can also add nuts and shredded coconut. (sorry – no photos of that ice cream yet – maybe sometime soon)
Speaking of food… my next image is of some basic chicken- that was mmm – mmm – good.
My last entry for this post is a shot of kettlebells.
I have been wanting to share about my favorite new workout for a while – and the “less is more theme” is perfect because this is exactly why it has been a help for me.
Sometimes working out can take up hours of a day. The drive to and from – and then setting up – suddenly an hour class cost us three hours. Seriously – that happens all too easily.
A few months ago, my hubs showed me Chi Chi’s Beginner’s Kettlebell workout (here – and below) and it has been my new favorite thing.
Less is more with Chi-Chi’s amazing (and fun) kettlebell workouts.
Chi Chi has a lot of videos – but here is the Beginner one:
