july 4th bbq ::: frozen lemonade *sugar free

I love lemonade in the summer. But at the store when I checked for frozen lemonade, sadly there were slim pickings without corn syrup. This leaves one option—make my own. Recipe below!

::: honey herb lemonade :::

12 lemons or 2 cups of lemon juice
3/4 cup local honey
Handful fresh basil (or rosemary or favorite herb)
1 cup + 8 cups water

Make a simple syrup using 1 cup water and the honey. Combine in a small saucepan and bring to boil. Turn off heat and add the fresh herbs. Set aside while you prepare lemon juice and water. Combine both mixtures together (your preference whether to leave in herbs or not). Taste test to make sure it has your desired tart or sweetness!

Freeze in cupcake liners and definitely put them in the cupcake pan. I found these pretty liners at Hobby Lobby, and I think they might be made with wax paper. Wouldn't it be lovely to have a big bowl of ice with these set up for your July 4th BBQ!? Oh yes, indeed it would.

Hello new day! A long weekend is a GREAT pause in the daily grind, is it not? I nearly forgot the holiday while scrambling to prepare hosting a birthday party.

While it feels a little slow to get back into work, the break sure leaves one refreshed. A fabulously short week is now before us, friends. Let's make it a great one.

color styling {lemon & gold}

Taking last week off from my styling series did a world of good I feel. This set felt a little fresher, or more natural for me, not that I felt completely burnt out. Small breaks just do more good than we give them credit for.

Can you believe it is May already? How does time feel so fast and so slow at the same time?!
