notes from maggie's farm
"Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language." ~ Henry James
I'm off to the county fair to ply my wares today, and in my place, honored to have a special guest join us for some pretty, delicious thirst quenching for your summer pleasure. Please welcome my sweet blogging friend, Kristina, from Girl Gone Grits.
It's not often that you are asked to be a Ghost writer for the same person that inspires you every day to write yourself. This warm Summer morning in June I was asked just that. In case you don't know this little secret about food bloggers we are constantly reading and keeping up on other bloggers; it helps inspire us to continue doing what we love. Maggie has been one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to writing. Her photography has inspired me to be better at creating a story within my pictures. Her stories of living on the farm make you actually feel like your gathering eggs and feeding animals right along side of her.
Because it's June and we are in the south I feel like I have to start with hydration. Living in Texas (whether on a farm of in the heart of the city) gives a whole new meaning to hydration. People of the south know how important liquid refreshments are. So when that hot summer sun is beating down on you and you are desperate for a little shade and a cool breeze try making one of these cool drinks. Sipping on one of these libations may just be the right thing to conjure up some summer stories of your own
I'm jus' sayin'!
"A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken." ~ James Dent
