It’s the weekend, baby!
I can’t believe its already December! This year has been full of wonderful things to celebrate, and today marks one more blessing! Yesterday it was announced that my husband, Rodger Saffold, was nominated by his team, The LA Rams, for the Walter Payton “Man of the Year” award. I’m so happy to see that he is being recognized for his career-long commitment to serving his community, and so proud to be by his side to watch him grow on and off the field! The LA Rams wrote a full story, and you can read it right, here!
Rosé is the perfect drink to celebrate any occasion, in my humble opinion. It’s light, bubbly, refreshing, and it’s a pretty pink color…yes the color and bottling matter to me for some reason. Making pretty choices makes everything better, I learned that from reading one of my favorite blogs, Living with Landyn!
I want to take a quick moment to make a toast. So please, to whoever is reading this, raise your glass, this is for you!
Let’s toast to all of us out here chasing our dreams, sharing our gifts, and striving to walk in our purpose. May we remember to celebrate the small wins, keep our eyes on the prize, and as they say, may good fortune precede you, love walk with you, and good friends follow you
And with that, I also want to leave you with a quick, easy, little recipe. It’s one of my favorites because of its light and refreshing with just the right amount of sweet. It’s also great any time of year, any time of day, and goes great with a nice cheese plate! Perfect for entertaining guests, or just yourself on a random weekday- you choose!
All you’ll need is a bottle of rosé, a bottle of sparkling lemonade, sliced fresh lemon, your favorite berries, and sugar for the rim. Try it and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
All you’ll need:
- 2/3 parts rosé
- 1/3 part sparkling lemonade
- 1 cup mixed berries (i.e strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.)
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 3 tbsp sugar
- Put sugar on a small side plate. Use one lemon slice to wet the rim of the glasses. Flip glass upside down, and twist in the sugar to create a classic sugar rim
- Fill glass with ice
- Add a handful of mixed berries & lemon slice
- Add 1/3 part sparring lemonade
- Top with 2/3 parts rosé. Add straw. Enjoy 🙂
