New Water Pitcher

We just got home from a fabulous 10 day trip to Bellingham, WA to visit my Grandpa Pederson.  Grandpa has a friend, Donna, who volunteers at a thrift shop that helps the needy.  One day we went to visit Donna at the store and I found this cool vintage water pitcher. It really reminds me of my Fiestaware, so I brought it home.  (Thank you Southwest for your generous baggage allowance!)

 I have really been trying to drink more water lately and I found a post for Sassy Water on Pinterest, so I decided to give it a try.  Delicious! I have only had one glass this morning, but it was really full of flavor and very refreshing.  I think it will be great in the summertime.

I modified the instructions a little bit. They are so simple:

1 lemon
1/2 cucumber
10 mint leaves
1 pitcher of water
Chill overnight

I think next time I will only use 3/4 of a lemon so that the cucumber and mint stand out a little bit more.  Yum.
