When life gives you lemons

Make lemonade as the saying goes! Using one's imagination and a tad bit of flair...

Step 1:
Grab a lemon yellow inspired outfit like this vintage lemonade gingham skirt

Step 2:
Grab some lemons. These gorgeous lemons are from my lemon tree.

Step 3:
Make refreshing lemonade:

Lemonade Recipe:
350g white sugar
8 cups of water
355 ml (1 1/2 cups) lemon juice

1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
2. Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.

You can use your imagination and add slices of apple, strawberries or orange. Or stick to a classic like adding Mint leaves.

Step 4:
Build vintage inspired lemonade stand. This amazing stand was built by Lil' Luna. I {heart} it!!!

Step 5:
Sell lemonade for 5 cents and retire comfortably ;-)
