hey you,

it’s time to get revved up for the weekend!  
for my latest domestic goddess project, i’m itching to try some new sweet summer cocktails as we lounge in the sun.  sangria has been my drink of the season, i’ve been craving watermelon and together they make a most luscious cocktail. yum!
cheers to a blissful weekend that never ends.
