In the last few days, it’s been warm in Los Angeles. Some may even say it’s been hot. I came home from jury duty on Monday afternoon, and it was 86 degrees in the bungalow. That, in my opinion, is pretty warm. And it’s only May.

With summer just around the corner, I’d like to share one of my favorite ways to stay hydrated. It’s called water, and it’s coming out of a faucet near you! No really, that is what I want to discuss today. Water. But not just any water. Good water. Water that makes you want to drink it.

Sometimes called “spa water,” water infused with citrus, herbs, and/or fruit is deliciously refreshing. And beautiful to look at. It’s one of those things that makes my day just a little better, and feel a little more special…a bit like my own little party.

There is something about calling it “spa water,” however, that feels precious to me, as though it should be reserved for a special occasion like a bridal shower or a fancy brunch. Instead, I call it “summer water” because it’s perfect for the summer months when delicious, thirst-quenching water is exactly what you need on a warm day. You can (and should) mix up a pitcher of spa water whenever you need a pick me up…no need to wait for a special occasion!

    I love “summer water” too. As you know, south Louisiana summers are extremely hot. This week I used Myer lemons from our garden, clementine oranges from Fresh Pickin’s and fresh mint for mine. It was so refreshing for a pool party I hosted this week for my tennis team. I love your blog. Congrats! I can’t wait to visit all of the farmer’s markets with you when we visit La.
