Watermelon July.


When I was little, summer wasn't official until we made watermelon lanterns. Well, I announce this summer is now... official!
Last night my boy helped me carve a watermelon lantern (is this our new summer tradition? I think so!). We lit a candle inside, put it in the garden and drank watermelon smoothies in the soft pink light. Yes, we are nerdy like this. But kind of romantic, too.

  1. I LOVE this idea!! I've never heard of these...
    Totally doing it.

    P.S- the fact that you put it in the garden and drank watermelon smoothies, is the cutest thing ever.
