Saturday Sparks Link Party 361

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 361!

Starting off todays party with yet another smoothie bowl!

Chocolate Smoothie Bowl by Pieced Pastimes

They seem to be my breakfast of choice these days, which is a bit strange.

I normally save these for warmer seasons, but here we are blanketed in winter.

The sun lost to gray skies.

It seems these bowls are the sunshine I so crave.

Chocolate Smoothie Bowl made with bananas, spinach, almond milk, cacao powder, pure maple syrup and topped with banana, granola, shaved coconut, chia seeds and a drizzle of almond butter.

"It seems like everything sleeps in winter, but it's really a time of renewal and reflection."

~ Elizabeth Camden

  1. So many beautiful features! I am craving sunshine as well...we've had the dreariest weather in NJ! Thanks for hosting and enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hi Shelley - Yes, the features are beautiful, as always! 😊The sun has been scarce this winter, so I make a point to get outside on the few days when she makes an appearance and soak her in. Here's to more sun filled days for both of us!

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my pink heart sign! So many great Valentine's ideas this week! Thanks for hosting!

    1. Hi Pamela - Your heart sign is such a cute idea! Love how the industrial mix of wood and metal are softened with the fabric heart.

  3. Thanks for hosting the party today! I'm definitely in the mood for pretty inspiration after yesterday's four inches of rain.

    1. Hi Sandra - Glad the party is inspiring you. Also, at this point in the winter, I'll happily trade your rain for our snow.. 😁
