No summer celebration is complete without fresh blueberry lavender cocktails. These seasonal refreshers bring a bit of fizz and sweetness to all your warm weather parties.
Have you ever had one of those moments where you’re faced with a big decision and you become paralyzed because you’re not sure what the right choice is? That’s pretty much how my last week has gone. After much agony, I did finally decide what I wanted to do, and I’m moving forward feeling confident in my new path.
I hate to use the word busy, but my life is about to get busy. Hopefully the good kind of busy.
I have the rest of this week to kick back, take deep breaths, try to center myself, and relax while I still can. I’m thinking cocktails, sunshine, long walks and book reading. I’ve got a house full of dogs for the weekend and not much else on the agenda. For the first time in a while, I almost feel like i’m on summer break…..even if it’s only a couple of days long.
I’m going to raise a glass of this blueberry lavender cocktail, and toast to new endeavors, unknown adventures, and good times along the way.
