Lemon Drop Love on Made By Girl // Summertime Watermelon Limeade


We are in the middle and summer and pretty much all over the country it’s HOT, and we all need a delicious way to cool off don’t we?

I can’t seem to get enough ice-cold watermelon these days, so I thought why not make a refreshing drink with it? And VOILA, Summertime Watermelon Limeade was born! I didn’t really invent it, but I made a really easy (three ingredient) version that is so incredibly tasty.

I currently can’t have alcohol, but you can, and if you want to have a little mid-week party, you should add a little.

For the full recipe plus some alcohol adding ideas visit Made By Girl today!

Drink up and have some fun, ok?

For those of you that can keep up a flourishing blog, while building another large part of your business, I tip my hat to you!

Thanks for your patience, and I hope you enjoy some of my thoughts on this fine Friday!

Artist Inspiration: Teil Duncan

I would hang her stuff all over my house if I could. I love the colors she uses and how she layers them in her paintings; she creates such depth and interest, it’s hard to look away.
