Avocado Facial Mask

1/4 ripe avocado

1 teaspoon of honey


Mash together with a fork until well blended and soft. Find a comfortable, quiet spot and spread out a towel to lie on. Smear mask over your face and relax for 10-20 minutes.  If this is a gift you can add to the experience with playing relaxing music in the background or placing cool cucumber slices over the person’s eyes!

Peanut Island - A Story for My Dad


There is a special place on a tiny island in the middle of a pond where we sometimes go. When I am there I feel like there is nothing else like it in the whole world! It is a secret place that only my dad, sister, mom, and I know about. Being there makes me feel happy and special in a way that no place else makes me feel. I love that we can jump off into the water or swing into the water using a nearby branch. If you stand in the middle of our tiny island you can get a good view of the nearby town. I am so glad we discovered this special place.  There is a “magnet in my heart” that draws me there.  I cherish the special time with my dad on our tiny island and will wait for the seasons to change so we can return.
