 Sipping Saturday

I made a tasty fruit salad for my girls on Wednesday.  I couldn’t help but save a few slices for a bright melon margarita.  The color reminds me of summer weekends spent at the beach with family.  With our feet in the hot sand we would snack on cold melon. Have a wonderful weekend! Sweet Life
