Guess what I got to do this weekend?? I got to see my older two boys perform their piano songs they’ve been learning! I can’t even believe how good they’ve gotten in a few short months. My husband plays piano and is really good so I’m excited to see if his talent rubbed off on the boys at all.
When I was a kid, I took piano lessons for a few years and my teacher randomly just decided one day that she was done teaching and that was that. I never had another piano lesson again after that.
I then started playing the violin in the orchestra in middle school – even though I REALLY wanted to play the saxophone. My mom insisted on violin. I played all through middle school and then made the pom & cheer squad in high school and that was that. No more violin. Are you sensing a pattern?? I am not a musician and have never stuck with music. #fail
I hope my boys aren’t like that. It’s so great if you can play an instrument. I love seeing them develop different talents. Do you play a musical instrument?
Speaking of talents, my oldest almost hit a homerun at his baseball game on Saturday! He’s really turned a corner on his batting skills and baseball in general.
I love baseball season and springtime. I can’t believe it’s already almost May! Where does the time go?? Summer is right around the corner….which brings me to my recipe today!
Have I told you lately that I’m obsessed with my Vitamix? I am loving making all sorts of concoctions in that blender. My latest amazing yumminess is this Strawberry Basil Lemonade. There’s nothing better than a refreshing lemonade on a warm summer day.
I love the added basil in this, it adds a nice pop of flavor. It’s just about the only herb plant I haven’t killed with my black thumb! There’s no white sugar – just a little agave. This drink has such a bright, delicious lemon flavor. It’s perfect to serve at your next BBQ or picnic!
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
- 1 lemon peeled & halved
- 4 strawberries hulled
- 4 Tbsp. honey or agave
- 1/2 - 1 cup ice cubes
- Add all ingredients into blender (I use my Vitamix) and blend until combined and frothy smooth.
- Pour into cups and garnish with lemon slices and a sprig of basil. Enjoy!
