I'm Dreaming of a Warm Summer...



Photo from here

As a Florida girl, I usually relish the winter's relief from the oppressive summer heat. Fashion-wise, it's hard to be inspired to wear much else than a tank top and shorts. Or a summer dress. Or a tank top and shorts. It's really hot.

But this winter has been cold! It's been colder than San Francisco practically every day! And I barely care about my cute woolen skirts anymore! I want to wear a tank top and shorts! Wah!

Ahem. So I was dreaming about my favorite summer drink - lemonade. The best I've ever had is from McCormick & Schmick's: they make it with ten cubes of sugar and three lemons. It's perfectly tart and impossibly refreshing. Ahhhhh.

So what summer drink are you dreaming of?

  2. That photo is lovely! My favorite summer drink is probably a toss-up between Earl's Grey Lemonade from Earl of Sandwich (Early Grey tea mixed with lemonade) and frozen Coke.

    P.S. I can't wait to read the giveaway results!!
    P.P.S. How's the recording coming along? (I realize it's been about 2 days since you posted about it... but I figured I'd ask)

  7. We had a ridiculous heat wave last summer, in which everywhere I went offered no relief. All I wanted was the iciest, coldest water. It felt so great to drink. Kinda boring huh? :)

  13. What a refreshing thought....ice cold lemonade that's yellow and cheerful. :) We always want the kind of weather we don't have, it seems. I'm a cooler-weather gal but I'm craving spring right now, as it prepares to snow!

  17. I've always wanted to live in Florida, the Florida Keys actually. Sounds romantic to me even though I don't know anything about the Florida Keys.

    This summer I'm going to try this recipe for homemade lemonade using lemon syrup:

  33. Your post made me smile/laugh! I felt the same way about Montreal Cold Winter and my heavy winter jacket. I was so done with wearing it but now that I'm back in Vancouver on a much warmer climate I miss it so much!
