Strawberry Lemonade


pink strawberry lemonade

No, this isn't a pumpkin spice latte.  I know fall is right around the corner and we're ALL ready for hayrides and riding boots but at the end of each season, I feel this sudden rush to savor a few last things.  For instance, right now I need to have gazpacho one last time.  I need to wear flip flops 24/7.  I need a bright pedicure.  (True story.)  This strawberry lemonade is part of that insanity.  Please forgive me.  I'm pretty sure once you mix this up, you'll wish summer would stick around a little longer too.
