Fresh Blackberry Shooters

Pin It PIN IT!

Celebrate the last few days of “real” summer with some of these refreshing and sweet blackberry shooters!

Blackberry shooters

It’s the Friday before a long weekend, which means it’s perfectly acceptable to start daydreaming about what you’re going to have for happy hour. Or what perfectly fruity cocktail you are going to serve at your big soiree. (or picnic, same thing).  At 8 am. I don’t think anyone will judge you. And if that’s not reason enough to celebrate, how about we kick off some AWESOME news?

No, I’m not pregnant. No book deal (already have one of those). And no, I’m not going to be on any magazine, show, etc (although I’m hoping such a thing will happen soon enough). It’s actually not work or blog related. El and I? We found a place to live. We were approved yesterday and we move on the 22nd. The only way I can actually type my excitement is this way…

Boozy Blueberry Shooter

Now I can stop wishing, dreaming and talking about our time in this place. I can stop feeling sad, pitiful and sorry for myself. In just one month, we’ll be happily set up in our new condo (well, I’ll be in Switzerland, but you know what I mean). We’ll have couches, wifi, cable and a dining room table. Our stuff that’s been rotting in our storage unit will be cleaned and showcased. Our life? Well, it’ll be back to normal. And good god does that feel good to say.

Blueberry drinks

But enough about me. Let’s drink to you guys. To every single one of you who has stood by me through this, has offered me advice, food props and support. And whose stayed reading this blog as I’ve struggled to keep it going, to keep myself going. Let’s take a few of these sweet, summertime blueberry shooters to the face and rejoice in me never, EVER having to talk about this summer again!
