kumquat turns FIVE!
it’s hard to believe. but looking back, it has been such a great addition to my life. who would’ve thought it would bring new friends, creative growth, my own book, and even the opportunity to be a part of teaching others about blogging.
like any journal, i so love to go back and relive parts of this site that has documented my life and memories. remembering kids milestones, new homes, life experiences all wrapped up in a new recipe.
kumquat has become a big part of me. and i’m so grateful to share it with you, dear reader.
celebrate with me today. this kumquat vanilla bean salt scrub is a fresh, citrus-y way to exfoliate and detoxify your skin. the sea salt and crushed kumquat work to polish your skin while the oil nourishes and hydrates. at this point of my life, a good birthday celebration looks like a hot bath, a glass of champagne, and a good healthy scrub!
thank you for making this little site even more special for me. i can’t wait to see what the future brings…
happy birthday, kumquat!
