Cheers to Summer ’24


Summer cocktails.I can almost taste summer. School is wrapping up. Days are getting warmer. If you’re anything like me, part of summer fun involves sipping sweet and refreshing drinks. I love trying drinks that are creatively named and give some beachy vibes. Sipping on summer cocktails is best when you’re not on mom duty. Whether you’re enjoying happy hour with colleagues, catching up with friends, or going on a date with your spouse, that summery cocktail in your hand is a vacation in itself.

Mamas, throw on a cute outfit and go out for a little break.
