So, tell me something that really sets you on fire, that thing that invigorates you to no end, that reason the collection of talented beauty that you are is upon this earth. What’s that thing for you? Is there a thing that you desire to see happen that fear hinders you from achieving, from beginning? What does passion drive you to pursue? Something that burns so deeply that you would do it all the time, do it for free? Does it expand and contract inside of you like breath? When you tap it in the purest form, does your soul feel like an electric current that could transfer life and vigor to all you impact? Does that thing make you feel as though your heart is housing some sort of magic that flutters and sparks and frays like firework sparklers and pops like that sugary rock-candy on the tongue? Let’s take those things and wear them on the surface! Let’s not be afraid to stand out! Let’s show the world our differences and give others encouragement to do the same! Love you! Be you! Like Pastor Baron says, “you can only be a second-rate someone else, but no one can do you, the way you can do you!”

Two-Ingredient Ice Cream!!! SUPER EASY!
Level of difficulty: Easy
1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups of heavy cream
Open the 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk and pour it into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whip the two cups of heavy cream using an electric hand mixer (or by hand) until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the cream into the milk until they're just combined, then pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container. (You can add a drop of vanilla extract or crunchy mix-ins as you please, but the simplest version works just fine.) ENJOY!!!
