Dear Mother Nature,

You are clearly confused. I don’t know if maybe you are going through a bad breakup, or are just feeling really over worked and stressed with all your professional responsibilities, but clearly something is going on.

I hear ya, everyone goes through rough spots, but honey, you’ve let yourself go. You’ve completely missed the boat on spring. If you haven’t noticed, it’s April, and there are still big piles of snow laying around.

So let’s make a deal. I will let your unpunctual ways go this year, if you BRING ON AN EARLY SUMER.



Yours through thick and thin (unless you pull this crap again last year),

Summer cannot get here soon enough, and one of my favorite things to do in summer is have BBQ’s on the deck with awesome friends, delicious foods, and tasty cocktails. Here is my summer drinking bucket list.

{For the love of delicious vodka and simple syrup made from strawberries, if you would like to pin one of these recipes go to the original blog and original source!}

      Right?? Why is drinking outside while the sun is setting so much more relaxing than almost anything??

  2. Sarah says

    I’m obsessing over flavored mojitos right now, and declaring them a staple this summer! We are down to teeny tiny snow piles, leaving an attractive 5 months of trash littering the crusty brown landscapes. Bring on SUMMER!

    • Lisa Longley says

      UGH! I think I would take fresh snow over the muddy left over crap snow. WAIT!! I take that back!!!!!!!
