Down to the final days of hosting family here. Making a point to set the boundary of actually being on a holiday and away from work isn’t easy for me. I’ve yet to master the full disconnect, but am doing my very best to relax, recharge and soak up every moment with loved ones. Suppose the tardiness of my Saturday Post is a sign I was doing something right…

So many wonderful things to be grateful for the past week and a half. Coastal strolls, beautiful gardens, history and hiking, eclectic museums, the symphony, amazingly fresh local seafood and NC-style ‘cue, plus an abundance of drinkable delights, from fantastic wines and craft brews, to liquid dark chocolate and frothy coffees with homemade nut milk.

I hope you’re getting some glimpses of the new season. If it’s yet to arrive where you are, take heart — it’s coming soon!

One more full week of National Nutrition Month®. Plenty more of my daily tips over on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

Cheers, Heather
