Happy Cinco de Mayo!

There is nothing like a refreshing margarita on a warm day! I love all different kinds, spicy ones, berry ones, but this cucumber recipe really caught my eye...

I found this amazing recipe from the girls over at A Beautiful Mess. They use fresh cucumber juice for a refreshing twist. Head over to their blog for more beautiful photos.

Cucumber Margarita {via A Beautiful Mess}

1 shot (1.5 to 2 oz.) tequila
1 shot (1.5 to 2 oz.) triple sec
juice from one lime
juice from 1-2 cucumbers
Honey and pink sea salt for garnish Coat the rim of a small to medium size glass with honey then dip in sea salt. Fill the glass 2/3 full with ice. Pour in the shots, lime juice and top off with cucumber juice. Give the drink a stir and garnish with a lime slice.

To Blog, or Not to Blog...

I'm just going to pick up where I left off. I used to love blogging. Blogging was a way for me to share my thoughts, share what I thought was beautiful, an outlet to be creative, to write and to inspire others. Somewhere between the year I started this blog (2009) and when I stopped blogging here (2014) blogging became BIG BUSINESS. I always felt the urge to "keep up" to be more creative, to generate more followers, more sponsors, more just became to much. It wasn't "fun" anymore. I lost my inspiration and drive. 

I started Moms Who Shake, which has been awesome-but it's not as "personal" as this little outlet called Lilac and Grey. I miss this blog. I miss my bloggy friends. I miss sharing my thoughts and dreams and everything else that I love. With that said, I will be back here from time to time. Just me and my thoughts, hopefully inspiring others-the way blogging used to be.
