Hi! Hope you enjoyed your weekend <3 Ours was very relaxing and included some of the usual suspects: a trip to Mission to ride the carousel, takeout from Tender Greens and relaxing.When I posted the following kombucha pic on Instagram, I got quite a few requests for an updated homemade kombucha post.

(Ok, just in my mind.)
