I have to admit I love all the seasons. I love winter because the cold is so invigorating. I love fall because the cool breeze and light in the multi-colored trees is so radiant. Spring is the season of my birth but also the beauty of newness rebounding from winter. I love summer because it’s summer and that means fun in the sun. When I have a beach to enjoy, then surfs up, but without a beach I enjoy the soft summer grass under bare feet and a nice cool drink.
Speaking of cool drinks, I have a standard summer favorite: Traditional Pimm’s Cup. You can find the recipe and a non-alcoholic alternative below. Cheers - Sláinte - Skål
