I turned 45 years old today.

I don’t feel a day past 35, maybe even younger.

Age is such a strange thing. I see the gray coming in and the crow’s feet beginning, yet, I welcome the calm in this stage of life (most of the time!) and the wisdom that if I’m lucky, comes with aging. I have a fantastic life and I am blessed beyond what I could have ever hoped for. I have a loving and healthy family and sweet friends with open hearts and open arms.

Life is good.

6 ounces of Cold Peppermint Herbal Tea

2 Cups Ice

Toss the peaches gently in the brown sugar.

Grill the peaches on a very hot grill. Not too long, just long enough to slightly caramelize the sugar and leave a few grill marks.

Place the peaches with juice and sugars, and all remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Makes 4 eight ounce cocktails.

  1. I didn’t know you could grill the peaches before blending them. I’ll have to try this. Looks very pretty. And happy 45th birthday! I’m in my 40’s too and yes, I still feel like I’m in my 30’s xx
