Ode to H2O

They (whoever they are) say you are supposed to have eight glasses of water a day. And I'll agree with them. I feel better, overall, when I'm hydrated. But drinking water is kind of boring. I feel like I enjoy my water a lot better when it has become something else, such as tea. Or Coffee. Or, as in today's case: fruity water!

Along with a substantial amount of ice (which, by the time I'd taken the picture had almost all melted), I tossed into my water bottle this morning a few mint leaves and some sliced strawberries and cucumbers.

So delicious! And amazingly refreshing. I have a feeling this combo is going to be a front runner in this summer's hydration strategy.

What is your favorite way to stay hydrated? Do you ever add stuff to your water to make it more fun?


  1. I love putting mint in my water. Or lemon or lime. But usually mint! We have a beautiful bottle (it had something in it before - sloe berry wine or something) that I fill and put some leaves in and leave in the fridge sometimes. It's so refreshing!

  2. Lemon and lime are yummy too! I like to mix and match. :)

  3. I love this! Mint and cucumber add so much to water and keep it fun
