summer's coming

I'm a pretty serious water drinker (like, beyond the recommended amount of 6-8 eight-ounce glasses a day) and keep warm with multiple cups of hot tea in the winter, but when summer comes, I find myself craving a change, and I almost always end up sipping my two favorites: unsweetened fruit teas and lemonade.

I love how big jars of lemonade evoke summer, and I have a serious love for strawberry or raspberry lemonade.  I've been bouncing around summery images on pinterest and dreaming about a perfect picnic.    

When I have a more settled place (instead of hopping from my grandparents' to my in-laws' and back on a weekly basis), I want to have a picnic party.  All I need is an excuse and a day without weird weather!

Oddly enough, in spite of how many times I made huge batches and how many times running out of it slowed us down in the drive-thru, my favorite lemonade is from Chick-Fil-A, but I'll generally be content with little powdered packets at home.

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is flavor my water with slices of cucumbers or fruits. It's simple, but I love the refreshing twist it adds.
