This is the part where I usually say something silly about life and pretend it’s interesting. I admit, I’m not feeling particularly interesting today. I’m emerging from the dark side but still finding my footing. I’m making a concerted effort to relax and be happy, but it’s still feeling a bit foreign, a bit undeserved. These are the weird, illogical things that go through the mind of a depressed person, or at least this depressed person. Being happy takes work.
But enough of that nonsense. Let’s talk about what I’ve got for you. It’s good.
I come bearing gifts for your sunny days. We have one more day of sun promised before the rain comes back, but you hopefully have lots of sun, maybe even unbearable heat in your future. You need some fizzy, sweet, and boozy. I like to give the people what they want.
This Lemon Champagne Punch is sweet and tart, so get drinking. Just dump a bunch of lovely things into a lovely punch bowl or pitcher, give them a gentle stir, then sip until you couldn’t be happier.
You deserve to be happy. 100%. A little Lemon Champagne Punch could only help.
