Sunday Scrolls: July 16th

On Friday, Grey saw a sign in the neighborhood for a cardboard boat race event happening Saturday morning. He worked diligently building a mini cardboard boat for the race, only, come to find out (via a Facebook post around dinner time), they were boats you physically got into, and sailed yourself. This kid and his Dad rallied so hard to make magic happen and our Student Driver didn’t sink 😅! Today’s Scrolls has that bottled up weekend JOY sprinkled throughout with a peaches and cream smoothie, a centenarian bursting with sage wisdom we can all add to our days, and the most fun finds of the week!

Next time we’ll go with a more kayak-shaped boat, but this is what they taped together in a few short hours. It was the pizza box paddle for me, except all of the other competitors had actual oars 😆.


This superfood smoothie has been a household favorite this week! I can’t get over all of the wellness benefits of peaches and they are just so scrumptious in the summertime. Here’s what we added to make 4 Peaches and Cream smoothies:

  • 2 mini packages of frozen organic peaches
  • 2 cups of frozen riced cauliflower
  • 2 cups of organic soy milk (super creamy and rich in protein!)
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 2 scoops Truvani vanilla protein
  • 1 t. maca
  • 1 T. inulin (extra fiber!)


I am in awe of this man and the ethos by which he lives! Look at those muscles (and he’s vegan!) 💪🏼:


I was hoping to share fun family news in Scrolls today, but we have one unexpected hoop to jump through first. I am so grateful to have this community of supportive, kind humans to share a rollercoaster ride with. Which blurb in the slideshow is written just for you this week?

We got this bounce house during the pandemic 3 years ago and it’s still going strong. Grey had the idea to blow it up and throw the hose in it…then dragged it over to the pool to take advantage of the slide feature 😆. I’m lapping up all of these summertime moments and soaking in his JOY! I hope you do the same this week and we’d love to hear about your well + joyful nuggets in the comments below!
