The name of this song should be “Crazy, Sexy Voice”.

I’ve loved Tristan Prettyman ever since Sarah and Kelly discovered her while we were all living in Athens.

Not only does TPretty (as the three of us refer to her as) have an amazing voice, she also seems to have an awesome personality. Yeah, I’d totally have her on my fur bus! I am guilty, I follow her twitter account and read her Tumblelog. Don’t judge.

While we were living in Athens we got to see TPretty at The Georgia Theatre. I have to say, her concert is no questions asked one of my top 3 favorite concerts. I’m anxiously awaiting the debut of her next album. On her tumblr page, Ice Cream Is Better With A Fork, Tristan wrote,

"The by-product of tons of surfing, yoga, sunshine, and fresh food, is creativity. (The songs flowing through me right now are some of the best I’ve ever heard out of me."

 I think her song “Say Anything” is a good indication of what we can expect from this next album, pure bliss :) 

This one is for my lovelies, Sarah and Kelly!

And since my crazy is still in full force, Say Anything is back for your listening pleasure…

IN Joy.

Recently my wonderful fiancé planted me some Lavender in his garden. I’ve become quite the tea connoisseur lately. I’ve tried several different recipes but one of my favs is my lavender/jasmine tea.
I’ve always loved the smell of lavender but I think my obsession grew when Bre and I had the opportunity to go to Sonoma, California. Our trip included wine tastings, scrumptious meals, coastal drives, market shopping, spa days, and did I mention wine tastings? But one of the main events was the Sonoma Lavender, Food and Wine Festival. It was here that I actually realized how much you can do with lavender, and this got me thinking about using it to cook with. 
Back at home, I ordered some lavender/jasmine tea at R Thomas Grill, and decided I had to start making my own because it tasted so good. I got our waiter to give up the recipe and was excited when I realized it wasn’t going to be that hard to make. I haven’t had the chance to use the fresh lavender from Shawn’s garden but I hope to soon. For now, here it is if you wanna try it out.
1. Boil some water, enough for however many glasses you want.
2. Steep 1 lavender tea bag and 1 jasmine tea bag in your tea mug for three minutes.
3. Add agave nectar to sweeten (Although, it’s really hard to beat honey from your local farmer’s market.) 
4. Add a splash of soy milk for a creamier taste.
I don’t give exact measurements because I always change it up myself depending on my mood, but it is always oh so delishhhhh!
