Oops!! Another epic fail on the Blogging from A-Z front!! To my defense (and this happens EVERY YEAR so I don't know why I keep using this excuse!), I am traveling and working on a charity golf tournament today (April 28!) in the D.C. area!! Every year I sign up for this challenge, I look at V, W, X, and Y and tell myself i'll get all those posts done ahead of time and have them pre-scheduled! But I never do it!!!
So...we'lll see how I do with Y and Z...but here were my topics for V, W, and X.....
V was for vessels.... little vessels that is. What is it about these darling little beaded boxes? I've brought them with me to demos and classes that I've done, and they are irresistible! People can't help but touch them, pick them up, and open and close the top!
W was for weddings...my company caters and hosts a LOT of weddings....hundreds per year in fact! So part of my job is promoting that fact, and so I get to see a lot of weddings and wedding albums. It's so fun. I'm such a sucker for the romance, I swear I get choked up every time when I'm present for one of the weddings (and I don't even know them B&G!!), and sometimes, if the photography is good, I get choked up reviewing the online albums!!!
X is for xylocarp...wha????
1. (Botany) botany a fruit, such as a coconut, having a hard woody pericarp
Why did I pick xylocarp? Well, when I was reviewing a list of words I saw that xylocarp has to do with coconuts....and I am a nut for coconuts and coconut oil!! If you have time, look up the benefits of coconut oil. I use it as my face cream, skin cream, for oil pulling, for cooking, whipping into my coffee occasionally, and more! It has become a staple in my house!
