8 Red, White & Blue Favorites for the weekend


Ahh the weekend.


Warm sunshine filled days. Skies full of twinkling stars at night
and I must admit...
a lot of eyeing that hammock in the backyard.

This weekend has been filled with a little bit of relaxing
 and family time with my oldest and his girlfriend coming for a visit.

Summer Entertaining The BEST simple Lavender Lemonade (and a video)

When it comes to entertaining any time of the year
 I am all about simple & easy.

I don't want to be that crazy woman in the kitchen 
scrambling at the last minute to get the appetizers and drinks ready to go
before everyone arrives for a get together.
I want to be more like a girl who is sipping a glass of wine and putting her feet up 
for a few minutes while waiting for guests to arrive.

But  at the same time I am all about simple and easy - 
I am  big on beautiful presentation.

And this lavender lemonade does double duty 
in the delicious AND pretty departments in big way.
