Got something big you want to do this year? Might as well Jump! No better day to begin than today but, if it involves being outside, don’t forget your snow boots. And your snow pants. And your Bernie mittens. This January 26th is going to be a snowy one in Barrington!
If today is your birthday, you have something in common with Eddie Van Halen. He was born on this day in 1957. Van Halen’s song, Jump was released in December, 1983, back when big hair was all the rage and I was 10 years old.
We’re sharing Jump and Van Halen’s classic music video as our song of the day. Take a look plus find our stories from this day in #BarringtonHistory TODAY at #LinkInBio or right here: p1NGbX-1eGz  
Have a great day & stay safe on the roads! - Liz #365Barrington #ThisDayInBarringtonHistory

Red Curry Quinoa Soup 👩‍🍳. Look for recipe in my previous post👩‍🍳. Super easy, packed with nutrients and low in sodium❤️heart healthy meal. Just use low sodium culinary stock and salt free DASH seasoning blend🙌. Be creative with your cooking. I replaced curry paste with tomato paste and fresh ginger with ginger spice and it was great! I also added fresh chopped kale just to have my serving of green vegetable🥬. Remember the rainbow🌈😊. Your body needs a fruit and vegetable from each color from the rainbow every single day 🌈🥬#blsnutrition #365barrington #mealplanning #healthycooking #lowsodium #livingplate #homecooking #hypertension ...
