Today is National Honey Bee Day! A group of us got together to celebrate all that honey bees do for our planet earth. We are also sharing information about honey bees along with our bakes! My cake represents the fact that as our climate has changed, many species of honey bees have evolved to be able to see and fly in the dark. These bees have actually developed larger ocelli in their five eyes to reflect more light. Some bees who are active in the dark (typically in the tropics) might gather nectar from flowers that open at night, or they simply fly at twilight because it is cooler for them. There is also less competition from butterflies and other foragers during nighttime hours and some bees have evolved to fly by moonlight as many rainforest nectar sources are dwindling and competition is fierce for survival. There may be fewer predators out at night in some areas now as bat population is also shrinking in some areas so the bees have adapted their foraging habits. They are incredibly intuitive! The bees on my cake are leaving their hive under the dark of night and exploring the fauna around them - including a live succulent plant 🌱 I made them with @wiltonbrands “bright yellow” Candy Melts and painted them with @sweetsticksau edible art paint in “glamorous gold”
Cake: chocolate lemonade cake sweetened with honey
Frosting: Italian meringue buttercream with locally sourced honey by @threeforagers
Greenery: Queen Anne’s lace from @billsflowers

If I've been a little MIA, it's because we're up at the lake for the week (yessssssssss 🙌).
Packing for this trip, I just couldn't leave my favourite pieces from local shops behind. I've now been lucky enough to meet the amazing women behind each of the local businesses where I got these items. And let me tell you - #yxe has some INCREDIBLE Mamapreneurs! If I could suggest anything to you, it would be GET TO KNOW THE PEOPLE BEHIND YOUR LOCAL BUSINESSES. By supporting them, you're supporting their families AND the community you live in 💗
Here's a little bit about the Mamapreneurs represented here:
@busyferns - Danielle's fun energy is so contagious. She is super fun to be around!
@elizabethlynjewelry - Megan has a heart of solid gold. She is genuine and kind through and through.
@shenativegoods - Devon is a force of nature! She is quiet and sweet, but business savvy and 100% driven towards making a positive impact in the world.
@luxquisiteclothing - Andrea is an incredible Mama. Our boys play baseball against each other sometimes and she is always so kind!
@hiddenhavenflowerfarm - Kat is a twin Mama who has had her share of business challenges this year on her flower farm. She has rolled with the punches of bad weather though and has grown some absolute beauties!
Check these women and their businesses out! You won't regret it 😊
I got this beautiful pink kunzite the other day and have been wearing it around my neck for the past couple days.
Yesterday I stopped at a grocery store to pick up a few things and 2 people automatically said hello and smiled. Another man in the store saw me struggling with my 'load' (I should have grabbed a cart!) He takes his items out of the cart and passes it to me. I tried to refuse, saying I can get my own but insisted I take his.
Those are the 3 biggest things I noticed. It might be the best way to make new friends 🤷♀️ The kindness of others around me is almost magical.
I am loving the vibes of my newest gem.
