Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

Close your eyes and picture a perfect summer day. How does the sun feel on your skin? How does the breeze sway the trees? Who are you with? What are you doing? How are you soaking it up?

Me? I’m outside. In my front yard. Looking out at all the land. The sun is bright and hot, but not the kind of hot that makes you go back inside. It’s the hot that you crave during the winter cold. It’s the hot that warms your skin and softens your soul. I’m with my daughters, of course. They are playing in the yard. On the slide, in the water, with the chickens… doing what they love to do. I can hear the breeze. I can hear the grass sway and move as the gusts come and go. I can hear birds singing in the nearby trees. My girls are laughing. And I’m just watching it all, like an observer from far away, with a glass of homemade lemonade in hand. (Because what else goes perfectly with a day like this?!)

Days like this are so perfect, so simple.

Days like this go best with fresh squeezed lemonade, of course. Strawberries are in season, making the lemonade even better.  Here is my recipe for the simplest homemade strawberry lemonade ever.

It does not get any easier than this, my friends! Happy summer!!
