Peach and Raspberry Sangria

Sunny, summer, Sundays are what I live for lately. I love mid-afternoons on the patio with a cold pitcher of fruity Sangria and your whole day still ahead of you.

I sat outside yesterday with my glass of sangria and just took a few deep breaths . . . before I knew it I was smiling, just because it felt good.

Later we had our friends Matt and Sean over for dinner, they brought their darling little baby girl Natalie (I adore her).

She held on to our pointer fingers with her little hands and we helped her practice walking around our condo. We laughed and ate pasta and drank more sangria (Natalie had banana puffs).

I got to catch up with Sean about wedding stuff and we talked about blogs. (Check out Sean’s blog here)
We are thinking about attending a bloggers conference. Does anyone know of any good ones coming up?

It was a good Sunday. Fresh peaches and sweet raspberries, pasta and beautiful laughing babies. Doesn’t get much better than that.

      I should make a note of that. Makes sense to post cocktail recipes on Fridays! :)

    I love how much you loaded up the pitcher with the fruit! The more the better in my book. :)

    Come over and check out the Frozen Yogurt Pie I put together.
