Pink Lemonade Floats

My birthday is tomorrow and I figured I needed pink lemonade floats to celebrate.  I can’t believe how quickly time passes when you get older.  As I get ready to turn 32 tomorrow, I realize that my tastes have changed.

I no longer need a lot to please me.  It is the simple pleasures in life that really mean a lot to me.  I realized that more than anything, I just wanted rest this birthday.  I didn’t want to spend a ton of time preparing some elaborate dessert or fancy pants cake.  As Sweet Brown would say, “Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That!”

I just want simple things like pink lemonade floats.  I have made a few floats on this blog like this one and even this one but what I love about this treat is how simple and refreshing it is.  It doesn’t require a lot of hoopla or time.  It made me pucker in a great way.  It made me relax and it reminded me of good ole times in the south sitting on a porch in the summer. Nowadays, that’s pretty perfect to me.

  1. You know what I love most about this blog? Other than how wonderful the recipes are, and how amazing your photo skills are getting? I love that when people give tips or suggestions you gladly post them. Remember when you asked everyone on Facebook what we would like to see for summer? I said something lemony, something berry, something icey, and something fluffy and I think you have already covered all three. I cannot wait to try this FLOAT! You rock, Jocelyn!

  2. Yes, relaxation is a must on one’s birthday. Leave the hoopla to other people. :D
    I love the watercolour-pink shade of this float – just looking at it make my taste buds tingle with joy!

  3. Yummmy yum yum! This is right up my alley! What kind of pink lemonade did you use?

  11. Happy birthday, Jocelyn!!! These floats look so delicious and refreshing, and I totally know what you mean about tastes changing (and time accelerating – ugh) with age. I turn 32 this year, too. (What? How did that happen?!) Your photos are fantastic, and I love your site! :)
