Healthy Lemonade

Healthy Lemonade (92)

I got home from Calgary late Sunday night and all I could think about was lemonade.

Not just any lemonade, the (good) homemade stuff. The 10 lemon crushing, finger stinging, water and sugar boiling, lemonade.

And not just a glass of it, I wanted a big ‘ol pitcher of it.

So, Kevin (bless his patient heart) and I went to the store, grabbed a bag of lemons, and squeezed lemons for a good, long time.

We didn’t have a pitcher (because most of our things are packed in boxes at this point) so we used a flower vase and a couple of mason jars.

Best.night.ever.
