Summertime and the livin' is easy.

My two girls decided to put on a fancy lemonade stand and try their hand at entrepreneurship.  They went the extra mile by donning some "classy" costume hats, raiding my work room to create a hand-painted sign, and adorning the table with vintage tablecloth and fresh picked flowers to attract customers.  Taking a cue from mom's make-it-fancy mentality, I'd guess.  ;)

Lots of giggles and deliciousness ensued.  They drank about 8 cups each.  Two dollars richer, I would say their first lemonade stand attempt was highly successful.

Our recipe:

Fancy Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

1 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Cup White Sugar
Water to taste
Fresh Lavender (optional, but that's what makes it fancy)

Dissolve sugar in lemon juice in pitcher.  Add cold water, mix.  Sprinkle purple lavender "bits" in and stir.  Serve over ice.

This is what summer is all about.
