Strawberry Pineapple Lemonade is one of my favorite drinks! The vibrant fruity goodness always quenches my thirst. One of the great things about this recipe is that it is so quick and easy. This Strawberry Pineapple Lemonade is the perfect summer drink to sip while you sit on the front porch and enjoy the warm weather.
One of my favorite things to do, when I need to unwind is to sit on my porch and read a good book. It rarely happens because, with five kids, there is always something going on to fill my day. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mom. I have just learned over the years that you have to sneak in a chance to relax whenever you can.
I am already dreaming of sitting on the porch with my feet up, a good book, and sipping some Strawberry Pineapple Lemonade. Doesn’t that sound heavenly? This lemonade is so refreshing and can take the stress out of any bad day!
Maybe, if you are really lucky, you can convince your husband this Mothers Day weekend to make you some while you sneak outside on the porch to put your feet up and unwind.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
