summer survival tea

I make at least one pitcher of this raspberry-lemon iced tea per day because I love it that much. If you’re an iced tea lover AND a raspberry enthusiast like I am, you might want to try making some of this stuff. Only problem is… it’s slightly addictive!

Raspberry-Lemon Iced Tea
2 raspberry tea bags (I buy these tea bags at a little Polish shop in Greenpoint)
2 English Breakfast tea bags (I use Trader Joes brand)
2-3 lemons
6-7 T of sugar

1. Boil just enough water to melt the sugar & steep the tea bags.
2. Pour boiled water into pitcher with your 4 tea bags, and sugar.
2. Squeeze lemons and stir well
3. Add cold purified water til you fill your pitcher
4. Pour yourself a glass, add plenty of ice & enjoy!

the dreamy houseboat lapse

When I lived in San Francisco, I used to drive over the Golden Gate bridge to visit my sister in Marin. Each time I made it through the wondrous views and frightening bouts of fog, I eventually passed the amazing Saulsalito houseboats. The view, the lifestyle, the small town feel… oh how I longed to live there one day. Years later – I had mostly forgotten about my extreme love for houseboats, except once, twice, maybe three times a blogger. But today I found this beautiful houseboat rental and all those old feelings came flooding back. I especially love this first pic.
