Wheat Berry Vegetable Salad



My girlfriends and I had a weekend getaway to Stinson Beach to celebrate the 25th birthday of one my best friend's, Niky!  

Our weekend consisted of wine, walks, beach, Corona's, chips, dogs, hot tubs, Nouns (game we made up while studying abroad in Italy), and good talks.  It was so nice to get away for the weekend and relax with all my girlfriends.

I got home this afternoon and felt anything but healthy.  I'm burnt and I ate way too many chips.  I felt like a pick me up and this salad definitely hit the spot.  

However, I wish I back at our Stinson Beach House looking at this view...  


studying this sign for inspiration...


watching this sunset...


and enjoying the sunshine.








I hope you had an amazing weekend too!
