Summer is here so let’s make a favorite beverage of mine.

6 fresh limes
1/2 fresh lemon
2Tbs light agave nectar
6 cups cold water
1 cup ice

Squeeze your limes and lemon into a pitcher. I have an old press that we picked in a Mexican grocery years ago, it’s my favorite.
Add water and agave nectar, stir in ice. I like mine pretty tart, that’s how I roll.

This would probably be awesome with a splash of orange liquor and tequila. I know it’s perfect with a batch of guacamole and some chips!

Enjoy and stay cool!

Farmer’s Market Season

I’ve been waiting for 7 months for the local farmer’s market to begin again. Last night was the 1st of the season. We loaded Squishy into his stroller, leashed up Bean and went!

There wasn’t a huge selection yet, but we found some beautiful veggies and bread! I can’t wait for more fruits to be ready. Oh, and corn!!!
It was a gorgeous evening for a walk!

Today we have Squishy’s 9 month wellness check and we need to go to the grocery store. Hopefully we’ll be able to fit in an afternoon walk too!

Well, this should sum it up.
