I hope you all had a fabulous long weekend! It definitely wasn't long enough for us over at LMP.  As I'm sure you saw on Snapchat, in addition to celebrating America's Independence, we also threw Seri's son, Luke, an EPIC Pirate Pool Party, complete with a bouncy house/ water slide combo, a clambake, and some pretty cute pirate bananas.  We will have all the details and pictures on the blog for you to check out later this week!

Hosting this big party during the holiday weekend brought some awesome guests who stayed for the weekend, so to welcome them I decided to whip up some Peach Rosé Sangria! You really just can't go wrong with Sangria in the summertime.

Seri and I made some snow cones last week in honor of Canada Day, and I had leftover homemade cherry thyme simple syrup that I wanted to make further use of, and it worked perfectly in my sangria! Plus, it gave it a GORGEOUS color.  Simple syrup can really go a long way.

That's it! This sangria is sweet and delicious, and goes down so easily that it is dangerous.  Perfect for poolside sippin'.
