Bright humid sunny days and hot sticky nights… that is Georgia.
When we first moved to the South all three of us felt like we had moved to another planet! The first summer in Georgia was an interesting one. The air was so thick, it was hard to breathe. Even standing in front of a fan you still felt hot. It felt like we would never be cool again. Strange as it sounds, some days it was even too hot to go outside to the pool! You both went from having to be dragged inside at the end of the day to me forcing you to go out for an hour.
Funny how over time, strange became normal, and normal became home. Georgia is home: the sun, the humidity, the lightning bugs, and the singing cicadas. I love that we have found our place.
We may love Georgia, but it is still so stinking hot in the summer! Which is why we always have fresh paletas or ice-pops in the freezer. This fresh lemon and celery ice-pop is amazing! It is one of my all-time favorites.
The combination of the lemon and the celery make these ice-pops taste the way a perfect summer evening smells. Sweet and tangy, with just a hint of fresh bright green … if green had a taste, that is.
Love you like crazy!
