Summer is flying by. The kids have 3 weeks until school starts and I am so not ready for the chaos ahead of me. My eldest is going to start middle school. I am trying not to think about that either. Middle school. Ack! I’d rather sleep in with the sun pouring into my room. I’d rather snuggle with my kids under the covers and giggle. I’d rather go to the beach or take a swim in the pool. I’d rather take a sip on this Blueberry Mojito.

So, I will keep this post short. My SEO analyzer won’t like that, but I don’t really care.

We are swimming in blueberries right now. Blueberries, strawberries, peaches, you name it. Every summer fruit is stocked in my house.

In one day the Professor can eat an apple, 2 peaches and a plum or two and still have room for watermelon, grapes or papaya. Middle Child will consume an entire 6-oz container of blueberries in one sitting in between an apricot or two. And my Princess likes it all, but especially her raspberries which she likes to eat after sticking them on the tips of her tiny fingers.

Me? I’ll happily sit back and drink my Blueberry Mojito, enjoying these last few weeks of summer.

    What a great beverage for summer. I certainly will miss all the fresh from the farm produce when the season is over.

  3. Looks like you´re enjoying this plentiful summer, good for you! That mojito sounds amazing, mint and blueberries together, just great!

  4. What a perfect summer drink! Gorgeous color too 🙂

  5. Great color in that drink! Looks, and sounds wonderful. Only good thing about the end of summer is cooler weather is coming. I’ll regret saying that when the snow comes!

  6. I’m with you on the Blueberry Mojito though I do like blueberrieswith my oats in the morning. They’re apparently full of all sorts of good things.

  7. That’s true! My son will start school in 3 weeks as well, and I started on shopping on some stuff he will need… NERVOUS! But we’re planning to go So Cal for a short break. I’ll email you soon (the overdue email >_<). Meanwhile I need this drink when I'm at the beach. 😉

  8. What a great choice for this summer hell in my town! 35 C degrees , I need this mojito :).

  9. I’m so sad summer is almost gone 🙁 As much as I love the idea of cooler days, I’m quite not ready for the change.
    This mojito sounds refreshing
