Fresh strawberry kiwi lemonade – so refreshing and perfect for summer!
Woahhhhhh summer, just slowwww down. When the weather starts to get warm, we open all of the windows in the house and let a little breeze come through. It usually keeps things cooled down enough and we don’t notice the heat so much. Yesterday we did the same thing, expecting to enjoy the temperature in the house and avoid turning on the AC if possible but it was toasty by the late afternoon. And by toasty, I mean HOT. So hot that when I opened my jar of coconut oil (which is normally solid) it was completely liquified. Wowza. Summer is here.
Luckily, we have a couple of huuuuge trees in our backyard which faces west. I never thought I’d love two trees so much. When it’s still hot outside as the sun is starting to set, the trees keep the whole west side of the house and our raised back deck shaded nicely and cooled down a bit. My husband and I sit out on the deck almost every night and my new favorite thing is to bring out a pitcher of freshly made strawberry kiwi lemonade and sip away til the sun goes down. Ahhhh c’est la vie!
