Dog Days of Summer

This past Sunday, my friend Dianne and I opted to lounge poolside in an attempt to beat the sweltering California heat.

Dianne created a homemade watermelon fruit bowl filled with fresh watermelons, strawberries, black grapes, and blueberries! For refreshments, pineapple juice was my drink of choice while my sexy sidekick selected guyabano. Yummy!

Lucky for us, the pool was empty throughout the entire duration of our mini staycation! True to nature, we laughed, we danced, we splashed around, we sang Beyoncé and ate until our hearts’ content.

It’s days like these that I’m truly grateful for being able to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Enjoying a beautiful Sunday in the company of one my dearest friends was enough to make both my tummy and heart very happy!

“It was one of those Zip-a-dee-doo-dah days – the kind of day where you can’t open your mouth without a song jumpin’ right out.”

Thank you reading [and watching]! Have a great week, everyone!
