It has been a month full of random hot spots. I'm not an iced coffee lover but lately hot coffee has sounded dreadful. I found this great recipe for a cold brew drink that I'm loving, plus it's super simple. I've also been loving the plants that were given to us. A friend moved across the country and bestowed us with her plants, I love big plants especially free big plants!
you need cold brew, you can make it but I was lazy and just bought a jug of cold brew coffee.
