    Hi Bow Cliff Family + Friends :)

    How is everyone doing? How was your week? I hope you are all staying healthy and safe! 

    So this week I made bread and macarons for the first time ever in my life!! Honestly, it has only taken a pandemic to get me to start baking! Lol! The bread was super easy and I think I have nailed it...I am already onto baking my 4th loaf. The macarons, however, I need to practice. They sure were not pretty and technically very wrong looking, but...they tasted delicious, very sweet, but delicious! I am going to attempt again next week, they are supposed to take around 2 hours, but I think it took me 4! Let me know if anyone has any tricks or tips! Also, yeast and flour seem to be worth more than gold and I think harder to find now than toilet paper :)

    Hi Again!

    I wanted to share a few activities and things that my family will be doing this weekend :)

    **FUN EASTER ACTIVITIES**

    • Share Your Family Recipes (i would love some!)
    • Create Your Own Dye for Easter Eggs - All you need are eggs, vinegar and food coloring to make beautiful Easter eggs
    • Host a Virtual Easter Egg Hunt with your family
    • Attend an Online Church Service

    **CONCERT**

    On Sunday, renowned Italian tenor ANDREA BOCELLI will perform a solo concert titled Andrea Bocelli: Music For Hope – at Milan’s historic cathedral, Duomo di Milano, on Easter Sunday. It will be live streamed on YouTube, there will be no audience in the church.

    Bocelli said ahead of his performance;

    “I believe in the strength of praying together; I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they are believers or not – truly needs right now.”

    **NIGHTLY APPLAUSE AND MUSIC FOR HEALTH CARE AND ESSENTIAL SERVICE WORKERS**

    A noisy nightly "THANK YOU" to health-care workers and essential service workers. "Bring your self, your voice, your hands, an instrument..even pots + pans and let's unite in gratitude and MAKE SOME NOISE from our windows and balconies!"

    Have a blessed Easter weekend!

    Lots of love from my family to yours xo

    Hi Bow Cliff Family + Friends :) How was everyone's week? 

    Ang told John and I about an amazing site called CALM. They have a website, Facebook page and app!

    I love their Facebook page, they are live-streaming the Daily Calm, their signature ten-minute meditation.

    Ang and I love the one they posted today with the rain on the leaves and John signed up for the app!

    Check it out and let us know what you think.

    Hi Bow Cliff Friends :) 

    Does anyone have any fun and exciting things they are doing at home these days?

    As the weather is getting nicer, I am excited to start my yard work and gardening! I would love any tips for gardening. I am not so much a "green thumb" and any advice would be most welcome :)

    Let us know how your gardens are doing and and send us photos over the next few weeks as they grow! We would love to post some photos to our website and Facebook page! Flowers always make things brighter :)

    Happy Friday :)
