watermelon sangria

watermelon_sangria_1“His head is right there.”  This statement at our most recent doctor’s appointment sent Sticky’s face from nervousness to straight up terror.  I of course am well aware that baby boy’s head is right there.  When a likely 8+ pound baby is pushing down on your pelvic area you know it, trust me.  What we do not know is when, which can put a husband slightly on edge (it does mine at least).  In order to help the poor guy out I figured it was high time for a cocktail post.  He was more than agreeable to helping me with anything I needed for this shoot in order to get that glass in hand.  Hard to believe the next time one of these rolls around I will be able to cheers along with him.

watermelon_sangria_2 watermelon_sangria_3Some sangria recipes can be rather complicated as far as ingredients and how long it needs to “marinate”.  Of course these complex, more traditional versions are well worth all the fuss.  But there are times when we need to keep things simple.  This is your unassuming and delightfully refreshing version of sangria.  Perfectly acceptable for lazy summer afternoons.

    I’ve been wondering about you, Shan doing last couple posts, if you were busy having the baby! Thinking of you and wishing you well!
