I had one of those perfect summer days. You know. Productive, kids visiting, fabulous weather, dinner with friends…even a hilarious prank call to a friend at work. The only thing missing was my dear hubby, working in Texas, supporting my perfect summer day lifestyle. Thanks, honey.
It all started with a bike ride, early in the morning.
There were strawberries at every farm stand.
As I peddled on, more and more berries. So, I started thinking…between breathing, of course….
How about a nice, cold, refreshing strawberry cocktail?
Sometimes a rigorous workout leads to divine inspiration. Usually around the time you start seeing spots.
Let me preface: I drank plenty of water first. By happy hour, I was ready for my divine summer spirit.
