Watermelon ----- Mmmmm---Gooood!

There's something you need to know about me. I LOVE fruit!!!!!! If I could I would live on fresh fruit. If you ever want to give me a gift just bring me a nice fresh fruit salad and I'll love you forever. I'm very loyal that way.

My family is probably sick of watermelon already this summer because I can't get enough. But, I have to gorge myself now just so I can make it through the winter months when the watermelon just isn't as good and it's way too expensive.

I've been buying seedless watermelon because, lets face it, it is so much easier to eat. Yesterday, however, the grocery store I went to was OUT of seedless...........what? could that be? SEEDEd melon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my it was SOOOOO GOOOOOD! The juiciness and sweetness was beyond compare. I just wanted to put my face right into the melon and eat until I passed out.

Wish I was this cute doing that.

Oh watermelon I love you!!!!

I love you when you're square.

I love you with a face.

I even love you carved as flowers with a weird twig sticking out.

Bring on the melon! Bring on the summer fun!
