Photo A Day, January

Photo A Day, January

When I first planned on a “Photo A Day” post to publish for January, I had no idea my month would include a deadly shooting at my mall and a flood in my home. It’s been a hard month, for sure.

The world will throw many unavoidable curveballs. It’s how you handle them and bounce back that counts. Sort of like running up a huge hill; it’s the flat plateau after that hill where you’re really strengthening your sport. That’s what is most important.

Jan 2. 1 quart cold water, 2 freshly squeezed lemons, 1/4 cup Bragg’s unfiltered apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, liquid stevia to taste. Drink it all throughout the day; it helps beat the bloat!

Apple Cider Detox Drink - let's just say my mid-section has never felt better!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Sally, I made your “debloat” drink….how do you drink this stuff?! I’m struggling to finish one glass! Haha. I love all of your recipes, but this one may not be for me. Thank you so much for sharing though!

    • It’s definitely not an enjoyable drink! You’re drinking vinegar… keep that in mind! Add more lemon and stevia if you’d like. And water it down by adding more and more water.

  2. Day 15 of you staring into the oven…absolutely adorable! You’re too cute. Congratulations on the anniversary and upcoming wedding, it will be here before you know it! Such a cute post 🙂

  3. I am in love with you and this photo a day post! So cute and creative, and I love being able to take a voyeuristic gander into your amazing life 🙂 even though I’m not attending I want one of those Save the Date cards — they are beautiful! And also, can I borrow that top? 😉

  4. Sally I just made a batch of your detox drink!! WOW – tangy! Do you get used to it after awhile??? Although a little splenda helped. Hopefully I can wean myself off the splenda eventually to get the full de-foxing effect – I need to step it up now that winter is (almost) over!

  5. I love the loft top.
    I search this top on internet but i can’t find it.
    Can i know the item number?

  6. Hi! Love the long champ bag! What color did you get it in?
    Thanks! 🙂
